Don’t have 4th of July plans?
Why not channel your inner-filmmaker and enter the AIA’s “Look Up Film Challenge?”
A part of the AIA’s recent “I look up” campaign, the AIA is looking for submissions of short, 3-5 minute films from teams of 1-3 person collaborations that “illuminates how architecture enriches our lives and our communities.”
Register by July 15th to receive the AIA’s “secret prompt” on July 17th. Winners will be notified in September and earn an award of a cool $3000, two SXSW Film Festival Badges, two round-trip flights to Austin, Texas, a one-on-one session with a media professional, and national distribution of their film.
For more information as well as an inspiring example story featuring Chris Downey, an architect that returned to practice after losing his sight, go here: http://ilookup.org/filmchallenge/.
Happy filming, and Happy Fourth of July!
