William Shatner wants your Comic-Con footage for a secret project
Remember that tiny little snippet of video you shot of Stormtrooper cosplayers at the most recent comic convention?
William Shatner wants it.
On August 5, the Star Trek star announced, in a series of tweets, that he was seeking snippets of fan-shot video from comic conventions. He specifically called for footage from San Diego Comic Con as well as any Wizard-run events. Wizard operates conventions in nine separate areas around the country.
So I have a new mission for all of you should you wish to accept it (for those that attend Comic con/Wizard World cons— William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) August 6, 2013
I want you guys to be the film maker and film a Six second (6 not 60) video during the convention of anything you want and send it in— William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) August 6, 2013
He stresses that entries should be no longer than 6 seconds in length and that they should be submitted before the end of 2013. So far, he is not revealing what specific project the video is for, only that it will clock in at 100 minutes.
Why six seconds? 1000 entries at 6 seconds is 100 minutes.— William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) August 6, 2013
Six seconds is also the time limit on a Vine video. Just some food for thought.
There is no word on whether or not he will stare at all of the submitted video footage and scream "Get a life, will you people?!"
