Movie geeks can film their way to cinematic glory with the first-ever Dungeons & Dragons Fan Film Contest. The film contest is seeking 5-minute video segments dealing with D&D, with the winner receiving video editing equipment, a computer and a boatload of D&D stuff.
The deadline is September 1, 2006, which is unfortunate given that I only just heard about it in this month’s Dragon, and I haven’t heard a peep about it on any of the online forums, blogs and news sites I subscribe to. My friends and I have been kicking around some video projects tied to our group’s 10th anniversary, and while I don’t know if we’d enter anything, having a little more heads up would have been nice.
Besides, there have been a bunch of D&D themed videos, and while their content is a little too risque for Wizards’ film contest guidelines, I think those directors and crew could come up with something that would fit the company’s criteria … if they had the time.
