The number seven seems to have found a good home at Microsoft; Windows 7, Windows Phone 7 and now even a student film festival dedicated to it called SCREENed.
Although I won’t even pretend to know how the video above is in any way related (but it looks fun), Microsoft Australia wants Aussie students to make a short movie about anything “7” in under 7 minutes.
The competition, open to all Australian-enrolled university, college or TAFE students invites anyone remotely interested in film of any style or genre to make a movie, as long as it incorporates the theme and be not over the time restriction.
Like any good Microsoft competition, there’s some good prizes. Among the three possible awards, the best use of theme win an ultimate entertainments and PC pack including two Windows 7 laptops, three XBOX 360 Elites, three copies of Windows 7 and three Windows Phone 7 handsets.
The competition closes 25 October 2010. Look forward to what crazy ideas people come up with.
