Following on from the Noir contest we have decided to base the next contest around a different kind of theme. This time it is Quotes, make a film which features a selection of quotes from history or popular culture, for example you might work a line from a famous movie into your dialogue, or find a unique way to reference a quotation from a great historical figure, or perhaps you could make a story about a reporter trying to get a quote for a story or a workman giving a quote on a job... The choice is yours and one that should offer some great opportunities for creative writing.
Obviously the more creative the way the quotes are included and the more quotes the better, so get your thinking caps on!
The Theme is "QUOTES"
You are free to make whatever story, whatever type of video you wish as long as it respects the following rules:
1) Can't be longer than 5 minutes
2) Shouldn't be rated over PG-13, unless specifically mentioned in the contest's individual thread.
3) Video should be posted on vimeo official page ONLY. Videos for the current theme will not be available to view until the contest deadline > managed by drapeama, Vishus or AJUK, moderators of the official page.

5) a) Use of copyrighted material/songs : as long as it's not the center point/plot of the story, it's allowed. Otherwise user will be disqualified. Example : the coca-cola can/SONY tv . somewhere in the movie isn't considered as a copyrighted infringement.
b) “Use of copyrighted music both in lyrics, score or performance, other than such that is recorded incidentally during normal filming, without a release will result in the video being disqualified. “
