Film director Justin Lin (Better Luck Tomorrow, Fast & Furious) and YouOffendMeYouOffendMyFamily.com have launched a new film initiative entitled INTERPRETATIONS to support aspiring filmmakers. In a nutshell, you make a short film of no more than 3 minutes using the same script we provide (get all the info here).
Because you demanded it (well, some of you at least), we are extending the deadline to submit to 11:59 PM PST on Sept. 15 to accommodate all the awesome shorts that will be coming our way. Thanks to Toyota and all our sponsors for supporting us as we move forward.
We already have a good number of submissions and we invite everyone to click here to check out the films, register, comment and be an interactive member of the INTERPRETATIONS community. In the coming week, you’ll also see new INTERPRETATIONS blogs including a Q & A with juror/producer Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes, Terminator Salvation) and the transcript of our New York INTERPRETATIONS panel featuring our awesome MC Jennifer 8. Lee (author of The Fortune Cookie Chronicles), YOMYOMF’s Elaine Chin (former exec at HBO and Fox) and two of the filmmakers who we commissioned to direct sample shorts for INTERPRETATIONS: actor Ken Leung (Lost) and Arowana Film’s Evan Leong. So check back to the site often as there will be a steady stream of new and cool stuff.
One Script, Endless Possibilities…
Make and submit your short by Sept. 15 for your chance to win cash and get your work seen by industry professionals (check out our jurors here). We can’t wait to see everyone’s submissions!
