Apple is sponsoring a filmmaking contest in which, at a certain time, specific requirements are posted (the film must show a park bench, use an edit known as a match cut, etc.). Entrants then have 24 hours to make a 3-minute movie. They submit it online, then the world watches it and rates it. Those that rate the best get a laptop and a viewing from Hollywood professionals.
Some of my students did an entry and you’ve got to see it. I’ve posted it below. Get a load of the camera work and the editing. The story is gently satirical about the “sticking it to the Man” and “the Man’s sticking it to me” mentality. It would help them if you would go to the site and give it a rating.
