00:00:01 00:00:03 Youtube project: Direct
00:00:03 00:00:08 Hi. My name's Darren Aronofsky and I'm the director of a new film
00:00:08 00:00:12 called "The Wrestler", starring Mickey Rourke, that comes out December 19th.
00:00:13 00:00:16 My first film "Pi" won the directing award at the Sundance film festival in 1998.
00:00:16 00:00:19 Being at Sundance was a great experience and that's why I'm excited to announce
00:00:20 00:00:24 the return of Youtube short film competition. 2009 marks the 25th anniversary
00:00:24 00:00:29 of the Sundance film festival, and 25 years of celebrating original story telling.
00:00:29 00:00:33 So this year, AOL moviefone, Sundance film festival and Youtube
00:00:33 00:00:37 have partnered to bring you a unique challenge: create your own short film,
00:00:37 00:00:40 no more than 5 minutes long, incorporating 3 specific props.
00:00:40 00:00:43 Choose 2 props from classic Sundance festival films
00:00:44 00:00:46 and a red telephone.
00:00:47 00:00:48 The Sundance film festival will choose 10 finalists
00:00:49 00:00:51 and the Youtube community will vote for a final winner.
00:00:52 00:00:55 If that's you, you and a guest will be thrown to the 2009 Sundance film festival
00:00:56 00:00:59 in Park City, Utah, this January where you'll get a chance to screen your film
00:00:59 00:01:02 for an audience, and to meet with the festival's director of programming.
00:01:03 00:01:06 And the winning film, plus 2 runner ups, will be distributed on DVD
00:01:07 00:01:10 to industry executives at the festival. Remember not to show any brand names or logos
00:01:10 00:01:13 in your films. We just need to see your 3 props and your story.
00:01:14 00:01:18 You have until December to submit your film at
00:01:18 00:01:22 Good luck, and I hope to see you at the movies on December 19th for the Wrestler.
