So You Think You Can Make TV? ~ The Finalists

May 11, 2011


When we had the idea to create a digital film contest and open it up to young Canadian filmmakers, we knew we’d be tapping into one of Canada’s rich, yet relatively unexplored, creative communities.  We knew the response would be overwhelming, but we could not have prepared ourselves for the the quality of entries that we had both the privilege and challenge of judging.


First, our hats go off to all of the contestants who submitted contest videos.  They were thoughtful, funny & inspiring.  It did our hearts good to experience first-hand the vast array of talent in Canada.


We’ve narrowed the contest down to three talented finalists whose films range from gritty to trendy.   Now we need you to pick a winner!


The Finalists


The three films up for voting are spotlighted below.   Take a few minutes to watch the short clip from each entrant and submit your vote -


Will you be inspired by the tough love message of Fists of Vancouver, an Alex Poutiainen entry?



Or will you be uplifted by Gary W. Hayes’ and Jackie Chan’s message of triumph in The Challengers?



Maybe you will tempted to follow cutting edge trends from different cultures around the globe in The Coolhunter by Clayton Goodfellow, Lindsay Eeson & Zandro Salvo.



Whatever trailer finds you wanting more, be sure to vote before May 15th with a quick click of your mouse at and give our young Canadian artists a platform to create more great work (not to mention $3000.00 and a one month internship at Paperny Films in Vancouver).

Comments do we find out who won?
I would love to know where someone would look to fine the original contest offering? I would have been very excited to make a short for submission to your contest. I live in Vancouver as of recent and am looking to further my career in the film industry. Opportunities like this I find difficult to come across and would have been excite to submit something. Please contact me if there is anyway I can get involved with pretty much anything T.V and film orientated. Sincerely Brian Mills.
