Hopefully most of you have heard of the SikhNet Online Youth Film Festival by now! How many of you thought about actually making a video and submitting it to the festival competition?? Hopefully some of you :)
What’s that? You have no use for an extra $1000 US Dollars? Oh, okay, okay, you don’t have to enter. But we really would like to see your film. Perhaps you’re just thinking about entering the competition. Well now’s the time to stop thinking and start doing! The submission deadline is August 31st. Get your ideas down on paper. What’s the central idea of your project? Is it funny, moving, musical, artistic? Make a storyboard with pencil and paper, like a comic book that tells your story, scene by scene. Now you know what video you need to shoot. Go grab that video camera and go for it! It doesn’t have to be long. Even a three minute video is fine, but if your story is longer, that’s fine too.
Featured SikhNet Youth Film Festival Video
Here is a fun Spoof on the popular television advertisement for the Mastercard (credit card). This was created by Sat Bir Singh who is a local youth here in Espanola. This video takes the aspects of being a Sikh and turns it into a funny and positive video promoting the Sikh Identity.
