This week's A.P.T. goes out to a new concept that I am very jazzed about. The Trailer cash folks are looking at the crowdfunding challenges in a whole new way and I think you'll enjoy seeing what they've cooked up below. Nice work guys!
Trailer Cash 2013 call for general submissions
Trailer Cash is a special festival, celebrating the art of crowd-funding and seeks to bring together all facets of
the film business together in an effort to promote films currently in production or recently wrapped.
Filmmakers should submit their 3 minute or less video (trailer, teaser, crowd-funding video, pitch video)
that exemplifies their project. These trailers should be short and sweet, but give the judges an in depth look
at what story the filmmaker is trying to tell.
The Trailer Cash submissions committee will select 12 trailers to be screened at the public viewing session
September 23rd, 2013. Judges will vote on the 12 trailers and select a grand prize winner.
Additionally, one trailer will win the Audience Favorite award, voted on by the attendees.
All submission fees as well as ticket fees from the event will be awarded to the winning films.
60% of the total accrued fees will be awarded to the Jury Award winner and 40% will be awarded to
the Audience Favorite. Last year’s winning film took home over $1000.
With the popularity of crowd-funding, Trailer Cash is an opportunity for filmmakers to screen snippets of their
in-progress or recently completed film for an opportunity to raise additional funds for production or post production
A panel of industry experts from a variety of facets in the business will judge the films selected by the submission
committee. Judges include fellow filmmakers, business executives in the industry as well as influential bloggers.
All videos should be submitted on the Trailer Cash website, at http://www.trailer-cash.com/submit/.
Submissions are due no later than August 12th.
The screenings will take place September 23rd, at McHale’s Bar and Grill, located at 251 W 51st street.
Tickets for the event will be available for purchase at http://www.trailer-cash.com/2013-festival/attend/
