Write, Direct, And Film The Next UGC Masterpiece With MOFILM And Elance

The world of film is constantly evolving, and thanks to nearly-ubiquitous broadband access, it isn’t just for the creative elite anymore. In the age of powerful, humorous, and emotionally gripping user-generated content, there’s a filmmaker in all of us, even if you’re capturing your child’s first steps and sharing it with family online or writing, producing, and directing your own in-depth documentary.

MOFILM, myself, and some of the most recognizable brands in the world are partnering together to invite you, members of the huge creative and innovative talent pool of providers here
on Elance, to try and become the next influential director in this new age of UGC.

The brands, 12 in total, include Best Buy, Doritos, Kodak, HP, and AT&T, and they’re in the hunt for creative minds to give innovative and fresh perspectives on their favorite brands. The 12 best videos will be awarded with prizes worth over $100,000, and the top three will be given an all-expenses-paid trip to the Cannes Advertising Festival in Cannes, France to see their work on display.

I’ll be judging the competition along with four leading marketing professionals from around the world, and the winner of the competition will walk away with €12,000 and an apprenticeship with me to study film. The contest runs until June 8, 2009, so get your creative juices flowing, fire up your camera, and show the world what kind of talent Elance has got.
