Here’s a cool contest. All you need to enter is a video camera of sorts and a love of snow sliding. It’s called the Director’s Cut Video Competition and it is sponsored by Arapahoe Basin. Here’s how it works.
Its free to enter. Just go to Arapahoe Basin and do some filming in one of three categories: terrain park, big mountain/powder and why you think A-Basin is legendary. Entries can be 20 seconds or 5 minutes and you can enter as many times as you like as long as each one is different.
It is A-Basins hope that the Directors Cut will bring aspiring video artists to the forefront of the ski and snowboard community. Judges, consisting of A-Basin staff, sponsors and social media fans, will be looking for creativity and individual style. Prizes will be awarded in each category and include a free 2011-12 season pass. Additionally, the film will be shown at the Breckenridge Film Festival. The competition runs until April 30th, 2011.
Registration form, full details and rules for the competition can be found online at www.skiandridefilms.com.
