Now that everyone has their copy of New Moon and has watched it over and over again, we’d like to issue a contest of sorts for those of you that are up to the challenge. One of our favorite scenes in the film is the movie theatre three way date scene. Many of you will probably agree that it was one of the most uncomfortable and yet funny moments of the film. The movie that Bella, Jacob, and Mike go to see is called “Face Punch,” which is a totally made up film title that Chris Weitz came up with after trying out several other bad movie titles that were actual films!
Here is our challenge to you: Make a trailer for the fictional movie “Face Punch.”
We do have a few rules and guidelines.
1. The video must be between one minute and two and a half minutes in length. Any video longer than two minutes and thirty seconds will be disqualified.
2. The video should resemble traditional trailers of various scenes and not be one long, continuous scene.
3. The video can use dialogue and references from The Twilight Saga: New Moon but it cannot be the actual recorded sound from the film.
4. The video must be posted on YouTube on your own channel. We will not host your video for you.
5. You must send us a link to your YouTube video to firstname.lastname@example.org.
6. You must send us your video information by May 5, 2010. Winners will be announced May 7, 2010.
We will choose three winners from the submitted entries to receive one of several prizes. Prizes include an autographed New Moon poster, an autographed Wolf Girl tote bag, and an autographed Volturi tote bag. The first place winner will get their first pick of the prizes. The second place winner will get to chose next. The third place winner will win the item not chosen by the first or second place winner. There is only one prize item per winning submission.
Remember to have fun with this and make the most of your two and a half minutes. We look forward to seeing what you all come up with!
If you have any questions, put them in the comments because chances are someone else has the same question and that will make it easier to answer.
