need ideas for a 4 minute film about free speech for scholarship
    #4733112 - 09/29/05 08:37 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

im applying for college scholarships, and looking for ideas for...

The Free Speech and Democracy Film Contest is open to American filmmakers age 19 and younger. To be eligible, you must submit an original film (4 minutes maximum; DVD or VHS) that answers the question, "Does free speech matter?" The film can be a documentary, animated film, experimental film, music video, public service announcement, etc. You must also submit a narrative explaining your creative process and ideas behind your work. Films will be judged on content, artistic and technical merit, and creativity by a panel of renowned writers and artists, such as author Judy Blume and playwright Tony Kushner.

any ideas are greatly appreciated

Do a documentary on how many people in our country believe marijuana should be legal. there has to be a statistic somewhere. and then show how many don't want it to be legalized. probably, inevitably, it will show tht the vote is to legalize it, but the governement wont. there's also public access shows all over the country about legalizing pot. i know there's 3 different ones here in syracuse, ny.

you think a scholarship judge would be bias against it at all

there is also another film contest about making a video that will capture the excellence of life

for that one i was thinking i would just show like human offspring and how parents feel when young come into the world, i think the music will be key in the video tho

this site is a great example of freedom of speech however.. i wouldnt reccomend doing anything for a scholarship on drugs period. sure legalizing pot would be interesting and blah.. but thats the last thing u want to turn in to a college. "hey im a stoner who wants pot to be legalized".. well best of luck.. ill think up some ideas

i see your point. very valid. how about things like oil prices or medicare? or how about the salary cap? how it tends to screw the lower 90%, and helps the upper 10%? i like your idea for the life one.

they have so many scholarships that are just screaming out for stoners

one of them is writing an essay saying, "I am unique because..."

and another is for like 25,000 and it is writing a paper about how some form of technology works for the enviroment, it is begging for me to get high and play with something

i live on st. croix, an island as smaller than alot of urban cities. There is a college here but it is auto acceptance and real shitty, so i am coming up to the states for school. Probably doing veterinary stuff and once i graduate moving to africa to work with large animals on a reservation or something, im not in it for the money.

they should just direct you to another page online, or you could try signing into the account you just made and click the scholarship tab at the top of the page, no problem
