You’ve probably seen these now-classic trailer spoofs:
Well, at long last, you can create your own! The University is sponsoring a “Mashup Contest”, encouraging Penn students to create their own trailers (no more than 4 minutes total, so it shouldn’t be too hard putting one together) parodying a well-known film. Faculty will judge the entries, and prizes will be awarded.
Top prize is a Digital Video Camera! 2nd and 3rd prizes are an iPod Shuffle.
And the best part of all is that we’re here to help you get it done! After all, that’s what this lab is all about. All you need to do is pick a movie and decide how you want to spoof it. (Browse the library’s video catalog for ideas) We’ll sit down with you and show you how to use the software in the lab to turn it into the final product.
Entries are due by 9 pm on March 12th, 2007. There are more details about the contest here: http://prp.library.upenn.edu/06/mashupcontest.html
