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.
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.
