The public clamors for it. The big studios will pay anything for it. The awards are already engraved. But there's one thing keeping the Woot biopic off of your silver screens: choosing a director with the vision and genius worthy of our story. Since we're having trouble getting Woody Allen, Ingmar Bergman, and John Ford to return our calls - especially the dead ones - we need your help:
Show us a scene from a Woot motion picture in the style of a famous director.
Post your entry here by 11:59 AM (central) on Monday, September 21, 2009. Prizes are $20/$50/$100 for 3rd/2nd/1st. The rules and criteria for winning: our panel of volunteer judges can and will make stuff up as it goes along. Use Photoshop, linoleum blocks, pastels, MSPaint, cave painting, tattoos, tribal scarification, whatever, but it’ll only be judged if it’s visible in our forums as a jpg, gif, or png. As we are fond of saying, try to keep your maximum width to 550px. If you need a place to host your pictures, try www.imageshack.ws or www.photobucket.com. We have no connection to either, but they seem free and easy to use. And if you want us to be sure your entry was indeed your work, post links to your source images. The more sure we are that you did your own work, the more likely we are to consider it for a prize.
