Congratulations! On getting to the video already. I have not started yet. I'm starting to write out answers to their questions.
i found myself memorizing the "speech" to get me to fall asleep, only to wake up this morning still "practicing."

good luck, lostfootage!

ps: i think i'm going with Fincher.

hey, figment, thanks for posting this.

i'm not versed on reddit. do you just follow the same link you provided? do you know if it's updated in real time? or do you have to refresh?

thanks,
FA4

jeez, just checked my email and they sent me one, of course. haha.

did you guys have a chance to read the AMA? it was pretty enlightening to read the comments from the creatives-- some hadn't ever written a script. that's way cool that their idea was sufficient enough to get on board with the writer.

i gave them three additional concepts for the "any other ideas," one has a script the other two are just concepts.

i think they said they took two of the alternate ideas to develop, but you have to have a completed sample.

after the AMA i went back and tried to personalize my responses as much as possible. might have gone too far. haha.

i really liked the idea that all these creators are still connecting with each other and with the Impact Team.

what a cool opportunity.

good luck to everyone who entered, may you hear the words, "Hello, this is Ron Howard from Imagine Impact--"

It's too late for me to enter, but I was wondering for those who know: The 30 second intro videos....the candidates that were successful - did they keep it simple? Did anyone speak about why their video stood out to help them land a spot? The video seems to be the most daunting part of the application.

i don't think anyone mentioned that the video is what got them the gig. creators did say that they felt the importance of the video was to show you could pitch yourself.

the reddit is really interesting. it's a little weird because the answers aren't next to the questions like a thread would be-- or at least that i can figure out.

https://www.reddit.com/user/imagineimpact/ check it out.

i did change my responses after the reddit listing-- tried to make it more personal. they may come to the conclusion i need therapy. haha.

Maybe, they are enjoying your answers at this very moment. I wish there was more guidance on how to do that video. That's the area that seems the most daunting.
