The Establishing Shot: Jameson Done in 60 Seconds short film-making competition is back

Jameson Done in 60 SecondsNow in it's 3rd year the Jameson Done in 60 Seconds short film-making competition is back!

If you haven't heard about the Jameson Done in 60 Seconds short film-making competition I would be very surprised as it is fast becoming the premiere (and fun) short film making competition of the UK calendar year. And the next one promises more of the same! But just better. The gist of it is you remake a film in just 60 seconds. I make it sound easy but for a more insightful description - see the video clip at the bottom of this page.
Jameson Done in 60 Seconds
As before, Jameson have teamed up with Empire Magazine (the UK's greatest film magazine - or so they say) to discover aspiring film directors in the annual film-makers’ competition Done in 60 Seconds.

Even though it's a very glam affair with the winners usually receiving their prize at the prestigious and star-studded Jameson Empire Awards ceremony. It's really a fun opportunity for aspiring film-makers and funsters to show their skills and get some important exposure. Not only are the UK's top film talent at the Jameson Empire Awards but the shorts are judged by a panel of notable talent. Last year's panel chose Mark Wong's Top Gun as their favourite :

Here is some info on the pretty damn fine prize you could win, stolen from I mean inspired by the official JAMESON DONE IN 60 SECONDS COMPETITION website:

All eligible countries will hold a local final (with the exception of the UK, where Empire will pick the cream of the crop) and the best filmmakers from each nation will receive an all-expenses paid trip to a fancy London location for the DISS final on March 25.

This year's event is kind of a big deal, with more guests than ever before gathering for a what is sure to be a visual feast. Here, the cinematic mini-masterpieces will be judged by a celebrity panel, who will pick 5 nominees.

Those finalists will go on to attend the star-studded Jameson Empire Awards on March 27 at the Grosvenor House Hotel, where the ultimate winner will be announced. As winner, you'll have the chance to rub shoulders with the movie elite, and perhaps make that all-important connection with a Spielberg affiliate who will launch your career into the stratosphere. After all, this is a big showbiz event, and anything is possible in showbiz.
Now I know it's not easy turning your vision into flickering frames - so to help, this year Jameson and Empire have created the Jameson Film Academy - an online resource full of helpful tip and hints from people in the know (which could really just be clips filmed in a backroom at Moviecon 2010 with an ambient crowd soundtrack laid over the top). See below:

The Jameson Done in 60 Seconds short film-making competition is back closes on Monday the 31st of January.
