The Saatchi & Saatchi and Aniboom

This is a new opportunity made available for its animators by Aniboom. In fact this could be the ultimate imagination stretcher for twenty-something Aniboom filmmakers around the world, because what we're looking for are films that bring to life the idea of nothing is impossible. When you think about it, animation and digital filmmaking is the art that can defy all the natural laws of physics and logic to make anything happen before your very eyes. Saatchi & Saatchi's creative reputation has a lot to do with the conviction that nothing is impossible, which explains the name of the challenge.

What's in it for you?

First, every year the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors' Showcase is presented at the Cannes Advertising Festival. The audience is the industry's creative and production elite from around the world, and the winner will be announced and the film screened as part of the twentieth Showcase this year. Which explains why the Challenge is open to twenty-something filmmakers. Second, if you win, you'll be offered the opportunity to work on a project with one of Saatchi & Saatchi's 140 global network offices. And third, your success will be celebrated here and on Saatchi & Saatchi's NDS Channel on YouTube.

What can you enter?

You can enter an existing film of yours that brings to life the idea of nothing is impossible. Or, you may look at the deadline, decide that nothing really is impossible and create a new piece from scratch. All submissions must be 3 minutes or less.

How long have you got?

We're open for submissions from May 6th, then you have until midnight (CET) on June 6 to enter your film.

Who chooses the winner?

On 14th June twenty finalists will be be featured on Aniboom's site.
The Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide Creative Board will choose the winner from these.

People's Choice.

Visitors will be invited to vote on the twenty finalists too, and a People's Choice will emerge based on these votes. The People's Choice will be featured and celebrated on this site and on Saatchi & Saatchi's NDS channel on YouTube. Question is, will the Board and the People think the same?
