I mentioned the 2007 Phylm competition to some of you this week. An American teacher has put up a prize of $100 for the best short film on a physics topic. The Phylm Prize, pronounced “film,” is an award aimed at spurring interest in physics and the educational use of new media.
The legal stuff and entry details are available in this competition rules document and there is an explanation available online in this youtube video clip.
Why am I telling you this? Well, the school has suitable digital video equipment and editing softwareâ€ available to help anyone interested in producing a high quality entry – all you need is an idea for a film. Best of all, the money and prestige are all yours.
Think about it.
â€ If you ask nicely, you might get to use a shiny white apple laptop with iMovie.
