Deadline: September 10 (11:59pm CST)
“Fantastic Fest, The Alamo Drafthouse and Badass Digest are thrilled to present the Fantastic Fest 2013 Bumper Contest. Every year Fantastic Fest hosts a bumper creation contest where we invite the Fantastic Fest community to create the most outrageous and entertaining video possible. We use as many entries as we can and play different bumpers onscreen before every single screening during the festival with two goals in mind: 1) to represent the creativity (and often twisted sense of humor) of the Fantastic Fest community and 2) to ensure that unlike other festivals, the audience at Fantastic Fest won’t have to sit through the same six or seven bumpers over and over again.
Your bumper can be almost anything you can imagine, but we have three ground rules:
The theme this year is Intergalactic Fantastic. Feel free to interpret that in whatever manner you choose.
The video must be between 15 seconds and 45 seconds.
The last line of dialogue or narration in the video must be, “That’s fantastic!”
The Fantastic Fest programming committee will select the Top 4 bumper finalists, and members of the Filmmaking Frenzy voting community will select the 5th finalist. The Top 5 bumpers will play at the Fantastic Fest 2013 Awards Ceremony, and the audience will select the grand prize winner. That winner will receive two VIP badges to Fantastic Fest 2014!”
