Thanks to everyone who submitted a video for the Homemade Media Challenge. We loved seeing the creative work and the variety of ideas shared. It was so much fun we decided to do it again... with a twist.
It's time for Homemade Media Challenge Part 2: Silent Movie Edition.
Your job is to create a story with NO dialogue, just pictures and graphics and a music bed. Think about an old silent movie. They told stories with pictures and a few well placed graphics and a great music score to drive the plot along.
We're providing 3 different pieces of music to pick from. They're all less than 90 seconds long but each is a different musical style. You must use one of the selections we provide.
Click the link below to download the music.
- Silent movie style - No spoken dialogue or voice overs, text graphics are fine.
- Production format is your choice - movie, animation, slide show - whatever tells the story best.
- You must use one of the music tracks provided.
Submit your finished project no later than 11:59 pm Sunday, May 31. Send your video to email@example.com.
We will screen all the submissions at the TCMedia Member Zoom-In at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, June 3rd.
All of the submissions will be compiled and scheduled to run on TCTVChannel 77.
What are you waiting for. Download some music and get creative!
