Déjà View

Filmmaking Contest

Have you ever had that eerie feeling like you've been there or done that before?  Have you already experienced a present experience?

We call that Déjà View.  This experiment contest is simple:

We give filmmaking teams the exact same script to shoot and edit.  What we hope to get are completely different results.

We want to see how different creative minds interpret and produce the same idea.

So get a crew together, find some actors, and charge the batteries... it's time to experience some Déjà View.
