Online Casino company CasinoRip hunts for dominoes filmmaker
A competition giving amateur filmmakers the chance to direct a TV ad launches this month with submissions received by Wednesday 30th September eligible for the first monthly £500 cash prize.
Leading skill gaming site CasinoRip.com is calling for entries of between 1min and 90 seconds to be posted onto their Dominoes, Camera, Action! YouTube site. The winning film will be shown on TV and the successful auteur will also win a state-of-the-art laptop and video-editing suite. Five monthly prizes of £500 cash plus CasinoRip goodies will be awarded to the best film entered each month before February 2010.
The panel of judges, including CasinoRip.com chief executive Kevin Dale, will choose the best film overall soon after the competition’s closing date on 31st January 2010. It will be screened as a CasinoRip.com commissioned advert to persuade more people to take up the traditional table-top game. Films can take any form as long as they feature or use dominoes as a theme.
“We wanted to give the public a chance to demonstrate their creative talents while helping to raise the profile of a traditional game like dominoes in exciting new ways,” says Kevin Dale. “We know there is a lot of budding talent out there and we are confident there will be plenty of interest in the competition. I can’t wait to see the films and look forward to watching the best advert on TV.”
Dominoes, despite being enjoyed throughout the world, have suffered a decrease in its popularity over the last few years, giving way to multimedia pastimes. However, CasinoRip.com’s most recent addition to their range of online skill-games, Domino Duel, has quickly become one of the site’s most popular attractions.
