Here's Your Opportunity To Get Into Sundance...

The folks at YouTube and the Sundance Film Festival have teamed up once again this year for Project: Direct, a program that supports truly indie filmmakers by allowing them the opportunity to write, direct and win their way into the Sundance 2009 line-up.

So, all you auteurs, or wannabe auteurs out there, here's an opportunity to take advantage of.

It's quite simple - make a 5-minute film incorporating 3 props, as listed in the video below.

BUT, you've only got 2 weeks, because the deadline for entries is December 14th.

I'd like to participate, but I don't think I can put something together in such a short period of time, even if it's only 5-minutes long. I'll most certainly try to think up an idea this week.

These rules are explained below in an introductory video featuring Pi and Requiem For A Dream director Darren Aronofsky.

For a more thorough write-up, go to the
Project: Direct page on YouTube.
