Popular video sharing website Dailymotion has launched a new initiative for filmmakers in need of financial assistance. Dubbed “The MotionMaker Fund,” the site has allocated $50,000 to be distributed between five and ten projects, hand-selected by a team of professional filmmakers and members of the Dailymotion staff.
The Fund is asking for applicants to submit ideas for a variety of film related projects, including short films, web series, music videos, documentaries, mashups, and experiment works.
The contest is officially open for submissions until January 31, 2013, with winners set to be announced February 15th. More information can be found on the MotionMaker Fund’s official website.
