Think you can do better than Snakes on a Plane? Well, the gang at Austin’s Alamo Drafthouse have a challenge for you! It’s the “Blanks on a Blank” contest, pitting moviemakers against nouns for an inspired challenge. Here are some details from the contest’s official site:
This July, teams of filmmakers all over the world will be participating in the “Blanks On A Blank” challenge. Inspired by “Snakes On a Plane,” Blanks on a Blank assigns each team a random animal/vehicle combination and gives the filmmakers the challenge of completing a 2-5 minute disaster film based on their blanks. After registering a team online, participants will be assigned their animal and vehicle combination and then they will have from that minute until Thursday, August 3rd to submit: either upload their movie directly to our webserver or snailmail their film to us on DVD or miniDV.
