Thank you to everyone who has expressed an interest in taking part in the 38minutes creative challenge
We are going to run a new challenge every couple of months. Each brief will be suitable for all specialisms and will be designed to encourage collaborations – helping you to make new contacts and work towards an original piece of work for your portfolio. Some of the challenges are intended to be fun and playful, others will resemble a real brief from a business. The key to all will be creativity and teamwork.
For the first challenge, we decided to go for something fun. After all, “tis the season to be jolly” and all that. Ready?
Take 2 - Film, Reloaded
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take a classic movie scene and make it your own. You can respond in any medium – reshoot the scene, draft a new piece of script, create an animation or illustration, write and draw a comic, or even compose a piece of music.
... Neo took a third, yellow pill in The Matrix?
... Renton decided not to choose life?
... Demi Moore decided not to make ceramics with a ghost?
... Bond realised his gun had been replaced with a banana?
You get the idea. Take a scene you love – or one you hate – and put your own spin on it.
How to enter
To enter, you will need to join forces with another member (or two). You’re not at school, so we aren’t going to pair you up. Instead, have a look at the list of people who have expressed an interest in the challenges, and drop them a line. This is a really important part of the challenge, as it gives you an insight into another area of media, gives you a new contact and shows an ability to work collaboratively. So don’t be shy!
Here's the list:
Sasha de Buyl-Pisco
Liberty Bonnar Thompson
If you no longer want to take part, or want to opt out of this particular challenge, please just say so to whomever emails you. If you want to collaborate with a friend that's fine, but they must register on 38minutes and join this group - and please bear in mind that making new contacts is half the fun, and point, of the challenge.
When you are happy with your entry, please upload it as a discussion on this group, with the heading ‘Take 2 Entry’. (If it’s a video or recording, you’ll need to link to it, but scripts can be pasted into the text box and illustrations/photos etc uploaded).
The closing date for entries is 31 January 2011
. The winning piece of work (as chosen by 38minutes) will be promoted throughout the site and as a ‘featured work’ on the homepage.
