Call for Entries: Pangea Day
If you had the world's attention for a few minutes ... what story would you tell?
Pangea Day is looking for short films that will make people laugh, pause and think. They can be fiction, nonfiction, real life or animation. Above all, they should tell a story that someone else on the other side of the world will be able to relate to.
Pangea Day will be offering a $3,000 licensing fee to every featured Pangea Day filmmaker. You could also win $20,000 to develop a treatment and a nonbinding first look with Participant Productions
Register at www.pangeaday.org. Then upload your film to www.youtube.com/group/pangeaday
You may also submit your film via Withoutabox.
Need music for your Pangea Day film? Our friends at Elias Arts, the renowned music company in Santa Monica and New York City, have created a Pangea Day Music Library. This music is a gift to Pangea Day filmmakers in appreciation for their efforts -- and because powerful images and themes deserve music to match.
