call "commercial for a concept"


Deadline:
Thu Feb 01, 2007 10:07

commercial for a concept
Based on the consideration that not only products - but also concepts and ideas need publicity, this project is about producing "commercials for a concept". What is a concept? Let´s answer with an example: "I suggest: Friesenpool" is a commercial that promotes the building of an open-air public pool, instead of another office building in the city center. The idea was to improve the quality of life and to create a new symbol for the urban center. A concept is everything but a product I guess. But this is not really true. Publicity for a product that doesn´t exist is a "commercial for a concept" as well. We feel a need for new concepts and ideas regarding our public and personal lives. Let´s promote them!

to directors
We would be really glad if you are interested in producing a "commercial for a concept". Just go to http://www.commercialforaconcept.com, choose a concept (or/and submit one yourself), and produce a commercial for it. Of course you will participate in the returns of the DVD, or of subsequent screenings or broadcasting on TV. Please get in touch with us before starting... We consider "commercials" as a visually-advanced short film format that can be used to promote concepts.
