Netfilx Find Your Voice Film Competition

January 14th, 2009 · No Comments

Netflix is running a contest for us Independent Filmmakers. Here is what they are offering.

Netflix and Film Independent will award one $150,00 cash production grant, plus turn-key resources like film stock, processing, camera rental and post-production services, for a total prize value of more than $350,000.

And unlike other contests, we won’t just help you make the movie – we’ll help you get it seen, with a promise to distribute your movie online at Netflix.

So brush off your scripts and give it a go. The official entry is here.

The one thing I’m not to psyched about is the fact that you get to shoot this on film. Especially if it is going straight to DVD on Netflix. I think they should have a suite package with a top of the line Mac Pro with FCP Studio 2 and a professional HD camera package with letus ultimate and with 5 Canon lenses to boot, and the best tripods, cranes and dolly systems that are in the market. As well as a casting agency that can get quality talent.

Regardless it is a very nice package, but I’d love to have the gear ready for the next film instead of looking for investors. What would you want in a contest package?
