Kaitlin from zooppa.com sends this in: I read your article on King Kong invading Dodger stadium and I thought the “King Kong’s Path to Universal Studios Hollywood” short film competition on Zooppa would tie in nicely.
A total of $15,000 in cash will be awarded to the best short films depicting Kong’s journey back to Hollywood. Universal Studios Hollywood plans to use the winning videos in the park, online, and for broadcast.
We’re looking for the best short films showing King Kong’s journey as he heads to Universal Studios Hollywood.
Imagine what would happen if Kong went through your town?
Bring King Kong into your world and show us the aftermath!
If you need a little inspiration, check out the teaser above.
Films should be 1 to 3 minutes in length.
Every creative submission must include the following information: name of the attraction, location and opening date as indicated below.
1. Name: “King Kong 360 3-D”
2. Location: “Universal Studios Hollywood”
3. When it’s Open: “Summer 2010”
All work should show your depiction of the impact that King Kong might have on his way to Universal Studios Hollywood.
Do NOT use a logo for Universal Studios or King Kong 360 3-D in your short film.
If you’ve already uploaded work including one of these logos, it is okay to leave it up. This will not help or hurt your chances of winning.
King Kong Visuals
As part of the creative challenge, you will use your imagination to depict King Kong as the behemoth, iconic figure the world has come to know without actually showing him.
You cannot show any visuals of King Kong.
With massive feet measuring 15’ long and 9’ wide, his footprints will be hard to miss.
