Projectile is open to applicants from all the creative industries. The brief is open and challenges competitors to submit a script or idea which otherwise would be impossible to get produced.
Commenting on the launch of the competition, Trevor Robinson, founder of Quiet Storm, said: “As a creative I have always been frustrated with missed opportunities and sometimes having your best ideas thrown away. This competition is a brilliant way to get those unsung strokes of genius made and out there.
“I’m really looking forward to seeing what comes out of this and I think there will be some really exciting work which will challenge the sterile and sometimes creatively starved commercials that we all see on the TV.”
The closing deadline for submissions is May 29. A panel of industry experts, headed by Robinson, will judge short-listed submissions.The winning film will be fully-funded and produced by Quiet Storm Films and will be released over the internet as a viral.
The feature film director, writer and television presenter Richard Jobson, who recently signed for commercials representation with Quiet Storm Films, will direct the winning script.
The competition invitation will also be sent out as an email to creatives at advertising agencies, digital agencies and design companies and will be seeded on the internet.
