The Alamo Drafthouse Wants to Offer You $1,000 for Making a 'No Talking, No Texting' PSA
The Alamo Drafthouse is well known for its strict "No Talking, No Texting" policy (remember when they evicted someone for using her phone during a movie, then posted the customer's angry voicemail on YouTube for the world to mock?), so it doesn't come as much of a surprise that they're looking to you -- yes, you! -- to create a new PSA to screen before movies at their locations nationwide. The best part? If they pick yours, you'll receive a $1,000 Visa gift card for your troubles.
In case you're down for the challenge, here are the rules and guidelines per the theater chain:
Your video must have the "Don't Talk or Text During Movies" theme.
Your video must contain the Alamo Drafthouse logo, which can be found here
Your video must be suitable for audiences PG-13 or under, no nudity or profanity.
Your video cannot have any violence or weapons present.
Your video should be no longer than 60 seconds in length.
Video submissions must be entered by November 21, 2012
All submissions will be posted on Badass Digest, the pop culture site of Alamo Drafthouse, for viewing and voting until 12:00pm CST on November 28. Audience votes will determine the winning submission in each Alamo Drafthouse market: Austin, San Antonio, Houston, Kansas City and Winchester. The winners from each market will win a $200 Alamo gift card and will see their PSA screen in their respective location. A panel will decide on the final winner. You can read all the submission rules and guidelines and submit your film here.
