As promised yesterday, this is my potential solution to the Linux survival question: A Linux Commercial--created by you--and it's a contest. Sound exciting? You creative types will now have a chance to create your own short film/video/commercial for Linux. Give Linux a face, a voice, a rap, a song, a cool theme--whatever! The sky's the limit and I want to see your best work on this project. Create a short video, upload it to YouTube and let's see what happens.
Here are the rules and guidelines:
Create a new, original video presentation for Linux no longer than 3 minutes total run time (TRT). TRT includes intro, credits, etc.
You may use music, voice over and special effects.
Conform to all state, local, federal and international laws and NO nudity, profanity, harm to animals, etc.
Post that video to youtube.com
Post a link to that video in the Comments section below this post.
The deadline is January 10, 2010 at 5pm Eastern Standard Time. You can post your entries after that time but they won't be considered for the contest.
I will announce the winners via a post here on Daniweb on January 15, 2010.
There will be three winners: First, Second and Third place.
Winners will receive fame and possibly some higher form of recognition. I'll work on that part.
Winners will be judged on the following criteria:
2. Number YouTube views
3. Commercial Appeal
Good luck and get creative.
