Crackle.com, the old Grouper recently re-launched by Sony as a streaming entertainment network, are currently running three contests for budding video producers who want to have a crack (excuse the pun) at the big time.
Winners of the contests are offered “career-making opportunities…that money can’t buy”, according to the triangle of fame (my name for it, not Crackle’s) which you’ll find on Crackle’s site. “Get in the game, get featured, get famous” are the steps – sounds easy!
The three contests cover different genres: Stand-up comedy, short film, and animation. Each contest also has different prizes that are more relevant and rewarding for the particular genre.
Choose the Contest for You
The “High Wire” contest is for the comedic talents out there. The winner will find themselves with the opportunity to perform a 15 minute set on one of the famous IMPROV stages in LA, New York or Chicago. Add to this the chance to pitch your talents to IMPROV Comedy Labs executives.
Directors and producers of short films should test their talents in the “Shorts” contest. The reward for the winner? A $15,000 development deal with Crackle plus pitching your film concept to Columbia Pictures. Very nice, I like (as Borat would say).
Finally, animation gurus can show off in the “Wetpaint” contest. The winner walks away with $15,000 cold hard cash and a 2-day lab at Sony Pictures Imageworks in LA. Sony Pictures Animation executives will also listen to the winner’s pitch for an original animated feature.
So that’s three good reasons to get your mates together and have some creative brainstorming. Or at least drink some beer. Check out Crackle now and get famous!
