Film competition from Duracell‏

This dropped into my inbox today. As ever, one should always do their own checking.

Hi Jez,

I noticed recently in your blog you wrote about Film competitions and it was really interesting!

I thought I would let you know some information about our film competition going on here at Hill & Knowlton for our client Duracell and thought it might be of interest to you and your readers.

To celebrate the launch of new Duracell myGrid, the much anticipated pad offering wireless charging, myGrid is hosting a short film competition for would-be movie makers and film fanatics. Enter (for free!!) the mySequel competition and be in win a chance of winning prizes worth more than £15,000!

The challenge is to create the next instalment to ‘Entangled’
(www.youtube.com/user/officialduracelluk ). The short film, produced by Ridley Scott’s production company RSA Films ltd, is shot in the iconic b-movie style, parodies a world full of wires and features you as the lead character.

Entrants have four weeks to submit their own sequel ideas via a script which will be uploaded onto the microsite where submissions will be evaluated by a panel of judges. The competition will close at midnight on October 31st. The winner will see their mySequel idea go from script to screen with a £15,000 production day, courtesy of Duracell myGrid.

The website to direct students to is: www.mygridproductions.co.uk where it outlines all the essential information regarding entering the competition and timings, etc.

We do hope this will be of interest to you and do feel free to pop this on your website if you so wish! In the meantime if you require any additional information please do not hesitate to contact the team on mygridproductions@hillandknowlton.com / 0207 413 3208.

Many thanks,
Emma Gannon
