Ever fancied yourself as a director? Wanted to make moving images but never had the impetus to do it? Now is your chance. We have partnered with Olympus to give a set of prizes out to the best, funniest, stupidest and most interesting shorts anyone can think of.
We’re looking for video memes, and we’re not being picky. A meme is a quick and shareable video. Funny, serious, live action, animation, colorful, Black and white, dumb, random – skulls, sand, clothes, painted faces, feet, spoons – we don’t care as long as you don’t hurt anyone in making the film. We’re looking for creativity, humor, relevance and plan unadulterated brilliance.
Prizes: Three people will WIN – 1st Prize Olympus Camera, Olympus Sound Recorder & £500 of FLY53 clothing – 2Nd prize £200 of FLY53 clothing, 3rd Prize £50 of FLy53 clothing – 10 runners up prizes of a FLY53 Tee-shirt.
Judging: We all sit about and we arm wrestle, debate, argue and champion the ones we think capture our brand best, and will be left with 5 finalists videos. We’ll then post these to our Facebook page and ask people to vote for the winners. Most votes win – easy.
1) It HAS to have the FLY53 and Olympus logos in it. That’s a no brainer. Get both from below.
2) If it’s violent, it better be comedy style. If it’s sexy, it better not be crass.
3) The video has to be between 6 – 12 seconds long only. Nothing longer than 12 or shorter than 6 will be counted, no matter how good.
4) Use whatever audio you want, but if you don’t have permission to use it, then we’re not responsible for it being pulled. Best bet, record your own music/voice on it.
How to enter: Upload your video on Youtube/Vimeo and send us a link on facebook/fly53official or alternatively upload on Vine and tweet @fly53 to let us know it’s uploaded.
Upload video before Sunday August 4th at midnight. Best videos will then be put onto our facebook for 2 weeks and the winner will be anounced after that. Simple. See an example below.
