We’re looking for high-octane, buttock-clenching intensity combined with skillful directing and solid technical execution - think choreographed fight scenes, stunts, visual effects, car chases, zombies, wherever you want to take it.
We’re giving you a maximum of 60 seconds to hook your audience, immerse them in a gripping sequence and close the loop with a dramatic or surprising conclusion.
You have license to go in whichever creative direction you’d like however you must include ONE of the lines given in the entry pack.
Remember to keep your film under 60 seconds and make sure to create something new that has never been published before.
Theres’s $10k in filmmaking gear up for grabs and Ryan selects the winners.
