Posted May 01, 2017
Do you like space? Who doesn't!
NASA and the Houston Cinema Arts Society have opened submissions for its third CineSpace short film competition. The contest calls on filmmakers of all ages and skill-level to utilize NASA's amazing videos and photos to create short films.
The guidlines are pretty loose, but the only requirement is that your film is at least 10% made up of NASA footage. Aside from that, you can do what you want be it make a documentary, a music video, Sci-Fi film or anything inbetween. Judges include filmmaker Richard Linklater and the grand prize is $10,000. The key here aside from creative editing using the NASA footage, but also sound storytelling.
