YouTube-Style Film Ad Contest

You may have heard about Nobscot's unique film marketing project/contest. Aspiring filmmakers and marketers are competing to create the best YouTube-style video on why people really leave their jobs.

The rules require that the video begins with a person or person-on-the-street being asked via voice-over: "Why did you leave your last job?" The filmmaker will then be able to use their own creativity to create a 30 second to 7 minute filmvertisement.

The winning entry will receive a $1000 award. The top 10 will receive honorable mention plus a $100. prize.

Nobscot is generating an incredible amount of interest in this and we are looking forward to seeing the results.

Below is the official notice. Pass it along to all your video-making friends.
