Copenhagen in 90 Seconds

1minutelogoHave you heard about 1 minute to save the world? It’s a contest for the best short film (up to 90 seconds actually) addressing climate change. The winner gets £1000 and lots of publicity. The deadline is October 5, 2009. The winning film will be used as part of a “worldwide campaign in November to raise public and political support for the Copenhagen Climate Conference.” The whole thing seems to be just getting started, since only a few videos have been submitted so far. Reminds me a bit of MoveOn.org’s Bush In 30 Seconds campaign a few years ago to solicit entries for a video that they would pay to air during the superbowl. In that case, CBS refused to air the winning entry. Anyway, I’m looking forward to seeing what comes from 1 minute to save the world. And, I’m even mulling a script idea myself…
