Call for Entries: Jameson Done in 60 Seconds short film-making competition

The Jameson Done in 60 Seconds short film-making competition is now in full swing and on the look-out for entries!

For the 3rd consecutive year, Jameson have teamed up with Empire to discover aspiring film directors in the annual film-makers' competition Done in 60 Seconds. This is the scoop: we're asking would-be film directors to re-make their favourite film, of any genre, into a single minute of screen time.

Whether it’s The Great Escape, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Lord of the Rings, or last week’s Jameson Cult Film Club screening - Aliens, your favourite movie could be your ticket to a glittering career in the film industry.

Check out last year’s winning entry, Top Gun by Mark Wong, for inspiration.

The ultimate winner will be decided by a panel of established film makers, including Empire magazine editor Mark Dinning and unveiled at a ceremony in London on 27th March.
To help out, Jameson and Empire have come together to create the Jameson Film Academy - an online tool to help you create the best shorts - featuring tips and video interviews from major movie actors and directors such as Simon Pegg, Kenneth Branagh and Michael Apted.

The competition closes on the 31st of January so, as Michael Apted advises in the Film Academy: "Cut the shoe leather. Cut to the chase".

Please feel free to get in touch if you need any further information.
