Spike Lee has teamed up with Nokia in an attempt to “democratize film” by developing a movie based entirely out of user-submitted cellphone footage. The film will focus on “the way music tells the story of humanity” and consist of three acts based on “assignments” posted on the project website. After an assignment has been announced, participants will have four weeks to develop their submission.
If you want to try your luck—text, music, video and photo submissions are being accepted between now and August 21st. Nokia will choose 25 submissions at which point website visitors will whittle the candidates down to 10. Spike will personally choose the winners from each act. Nokia Productions [via Gizmodo]
