Vans invites aspiring filmmakers across the country to share stories of #LIVINGOFFTHEWALL through a short-film documentary competition–Be A Documentarian. Inspired by the fans and wave of creativity that came with the launch of #LIVINGOFFTHEWALL, Vans is now opening the concept to all aspiring filmmakers for the chance to win a $50,000 donation toward completing a personal film project.
Be A Documentarian is an extension of Vans' #LIVINGOFFTHEWALL Documentary Series which debuted on vans.com/livingoffthewall in February. The competition seeks to inspire and support aspiring filmmakers while unveiling a vast exploration of living "Off the Wall." The filmmakers will be provided a creative brief and tasked with creating a 3-6 minute short-film documentary that shares their interpretation of living "Off the Wall." A panel of judges will review eligible videos and determine a winner based on creativity, originality, appeal and technical quality. The prevailing documentary will be featured in Vans' #LIVINGOFFTHEWALL Documentary Series and the filmmaker will receive a $50,000 donation toward completing a personal film project currently in development phase.
Filmmakers can enter their documentary on the Vans #LIVINGOFFTHEWALL website vans.com/livingoffthewall beginning March 10 to May 26, 2014. The competition is open to US residents only. Additional information, rules and guidelines can be found on the Be A Documentarian tab on the website.
