"This video is what we call a real film teaser! It represents the landscape we intend to use as the opening sequence to our movie. First scene takes place at the 9-11 memorial reflective pool (Ground Zero), we then cut to the second which is a natural waterfall setting.
We challenge you to use your imagination to tell us what happens in these first few minutes onscreen. Take into consideration the above storyline as well as our presentation on the homepage.

So, how will any know what your idea is? Playing the sceptic here, what's to stop you from using the 'credit' as a bait for ideas you can then claim as your own? In the interests of fairness, we don't know what your idea is?

To answer... nothing... all's I have is my word.
It's been wonderful to read all the entries, everyone has given a great effort to date! All entries that are posted to the website are then promoted on our FB and Twitter pages. We notify the writer the day they are promoted. Do you know excited some were to see their work out there in social media? They in turn "shared" it with their network.
My hope is there is enough creatives out there who don't think that everyone is trying to rip them off, that we encourage one another by exercising our gifts. As much as we want our project to succed, we want to help others reach their dreams also... it's a simple idea.
