Robert Rodriguez has launched Green Label Studios: Open
Call, a project which provides aspiring filmmakers the opportunity to win a
$250,000 production grant to create content for Green Label’s website. Plus,
the winner gets a mentorship with Rodriguez, and executive producer-writer
Roberto Orci (“Star Trek Into Darkness”).
All video entries will be judged by Green Label and sponsor
Mountain Dew’s editorial teams, with 10 finalists each receiving a $10,000
production grant to create a special piece of content for DEW. Finalists then present their work to a Green
Label Studios panel this summer in New York City.
In the end, one filmmaker will receive the $250,000 top
honors. More info is here.
Rodriguez was just at SXSW, promoting his TV debut “From Dusk ‘Til Dawn” as part of the fest’s new episodic series.
