When you submit to iFilm, there are three contests running now. One for the technically deficient, one for wannabee comedians, and a third for snowboarding cool cats.
Each week, EMTs (Emergency Makeover Technicians) adopt the case of a tragic sufferer of Old School-itis, diagnose his or her specific condition and then administer the prescribed techie know-how and geeky wisdom. And, as these washed-up's get Hooked Up, you too will learn to make your wired life buzz wirelessly to life.
Are you funny? Now is your chance to prove it with Comedy Central’s Test Pilots! Submit a one-to-five-minute video to comedycentral.com, and you could win a development deal for your show to air on Comedy Central's MotherLoad. Live action, animation, sketch or hidden camera — any format is acceptable. The only prerequisite… it shouldn't suck! Test Pilots will accept submissions from May 22 through August 24, 2006. Starting July 28, watch and vote for your favorite video only on comedycentral.com!
Despite its name, the contest is for footage of more than snowboards. "We want to see your life off the slopes – crazy road trips, pranks, nightlight, or just tell us about your crazy lifestyle. You get the idea, now get in front of the camera! Judging will be based on originality, creativity, and most importantly FILM VIEWS. That means the sooner you get your video uploaded, the better chance of winning. Our judges will determine the top videos to be featured on IFILM's Adrenaline and User Video channels.
Enter & win, folks.
