RootFlick Video Contest
Since you’re stuck at home we thought we’d throw a video production contest! Grab your fellow quarantined buddies (parents, siblings, etc.), grab a camera (it can even be your phone!), watch the RootFlick we’ve already produced, read the Rules below, produce up to a 2 minute video, and potentially win up to $250!
Social Distancing Network will post the first video in a 3 part video contest on our social media and on our contest page. This first video is called the “RootFlick” and is Chapter 1 one in a three chapter story. Anyone eligible in the age category (one RootFlick for elementary/middle school, and a second RootFlick for high school/college will be posted) will then have a week to produce a Chapter 2 short film that is 2 minutes or less which continues and builds upon the Rootflick and is left open-ended for our Chapter 3 contest.
The only rule is you have to use the same characters in the original Chapter 1 Rootflick – represented by similar clothing colors/styles and name. They can change the genders of the characters if needed.
After a week we will then create polls for the public to vote on their favorite version of how the story continues. The poll will be open for 3 days – so get your friends and family to vote for your entry and make sure they like our SDN social media pages!
This public vote will make up 50% of the total vote. The other 50% will be made by a panel of 3 filmmaker judges. The winning video will become the official chapter two of the story and the winner will receive $150 for the Elementary/Middle School contest or $250 for the High School/College contest. We will then do a 3rd and final chapter for each story with a grand prize.
