Jameson Empire Awards 2013 – Done in 60 Seconds

Jameson Empire Done in Sixty Seconds, or as it is commonly referred, JEDISS is a global competition based on a simple premise: take a feature film from any period in cinematic history, and make an adaptation or interpretation of it that lasts a maximum of sixty seconds.

The competition rewards experimentation and ingenuity by the filmmakers, and do not want to see a trailer of a movie but how would that movie be if it lasted 60 seconds. You can watch entries submitted from around the world here.

The deadline for submitting your version is up to 20 January 2013.

This is the first time Greece is participating in the competition, and the judging panel that will select the Greek film which will represent the country is comprised by the director Nick Perakis, the actor Renos Haralabidis, and the film critic Orestis Andreadakis.

So if you think you got what it takes to make it, follow these instructions:

Step 1: Choose a film, any film, get your friends, family or anyone who might owe you a favor, and reshoot the film with the premise that it will not exceed 60 seconds.

Step 2: Before submitting, be certain that the film is abiding the rules and regulations of the competition, so as to secure that you will not be eliminated due to legal details.

Step 3: The finalists will be notified on February. If you are selected, you will travel to London on 22 March 2013, and attend the Award Ceremony, along with celebrities on 24 March 2013!
