If your children spend copious amounts of time on the computer or playing with your digital video camera, it might be time to put their skills to the test.
The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) is calling for entries for its annual Screen It! competition, which pits the talents of budding filmmakers, animators and game developers against each other.
The competition was exclusively for primary school students last year, however this year it has also been opened up to secondary students.
Students are required to produce either a short film, computer game, animation, flash animation or mobile phone film. Winners receive cash prizes and the opportunity to have their work displayed in ACMI’s Memory Grid, alongside early works from the likes of Jane Campion and Gillian Armstrong.
