We are asking all students to submit their best versions of a 1970’s commercial.
You must sign up to be a part of this challenge by October 10th at 6pm in the Career Development Center or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Start Date: October 3rd
Final Submission Date: October 15th @ Midnight
Rules of engagement:
You must email email@example.com to alert us that you will be submitting.
To even the playing field for all, NO CAGE equipment rentals. All shooting must be done via camera phone or DSLR.
Commercial must not exceed 30 seconds.
You must fill out an Insurance Certificate form to cover you if filming off campus. You must also confirm with Film LA to ensure that a permit is not required.
Final cut of your commercial must be submitted by midnight, October 15th.
If filming on campus, you must still follow the school rules of production, by getting your project signed off by both the Production Office (Ron & Stephen) as well as reserving your campus space through the production office.
Must be 70’s themed.
Because this is also a learning exercise, you are allowed to use brand name products (please make sure to use products from that decade) in your commercial..though parodies are so much more fun!
An email went out to students on October 4th with a full list of details of the challenge, links to examples (like below), instructions on submitting and dates and times.
