Could You Be The Next George Lucas Or Steven Spielberg

COULD YOU BE THE NEXT GEORGE LUCAS OR STEVEN SPIELBERG PC World offers home video buffs the chance to visit movie makers paradise It is about that time of year when the dust is blown off the video equipment and we allow ourselves to embark on that directorial debut. If you are bamboozled by the dazzling array of special effects and sophisticated editing in the latest blockbusters don't despair. PC World and Dazzle have recognised that there is a nation of budding home movie buffs out there and have come up with the perfect excuse for everyone to start filming again. PC World and Dazzle invite home movie makers nation-wide to enter a competition to win a fantastic trip to Cannes with runners up prizes of a PC and a digital video camcorder. Entrants need to submit a short film, between one and three minutes long, demonstrating home video skills and creative footage to capture the imagination of the judges, and be appropriate for general broadcast. The winner, judged to be the "Pick of the Flicks", will be spending a weekend in Cannes, home of the glamorous film festival, with £250 spending money. For those that aren't quite blockbuster movie makers, but definitely worth a watch, a supercharged Pentium 4 PC and a top of the range Sony digital camcorder are on offer. It is really simple to win. The entries must be on CD or VHS and should be sent to: Zo Nuttall, PC World, Dixons House, Maylands Avenue, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire HP2 7TG The closing date for entries is 31 August 2002 and should include a brief description of the techniques and equipment used to make the film. If you are stuck for ideas, hints and tips on how to edit clips and making a great film are available on : www.dazzle.co./uk/filmmaker.htm.
