Xtranormal Film Festival and Contest

Just passing this one down the line for folks who might be interested. Xtranormal is having their first video festival and contents in association with Microsoft's Bing.

There are prizes, cash money type prizes, and you get the opportunity to be rendered as an Xtranormal character. $5,000 grand prize and the chance for immortality? Go for it!

Here is the introduction video from Xtranormal:

I took a quick look at the contest rules some of which are standard but it never hurts to look them over:

  • You have from March 24 to 11:59 pm on April 15, 2011 to submit your video.
  • You do have to sign up to be a member of the Xtranormal community. That is free.
  • For the contest they will spot you 300 points for you to acquire assets to create your video for the contest.
  • You have to use the online video maker.
  • Your video must address the topic of decision making.
  • You have to keep the video under two minutes
  • You have to keep it under 30MB
  • You can't cuss or be disgusting - civility please!
  • If you win you give up the rights to the video for now and forever more no matter the mode of transmission or future delivery devices.
As always it is the story, or in this case the power of the keyboard in the story. That is what makes Xtranormal videos work. Anybody can do it.
