SPRITE FILMS CHALLENGE
TM
Your task is to develop a :50 second script that:
• showcases leaving one’s mark on the world through self-expression in urban
culture
• shares the relentless pursuit of leaving one’s mark
• creates a story that boldly tells your point of view.
The film is not intended to be a commercial and should not look like one. It
should be an engaging piece of content that organically includes Sprite brand
visual identity elements or product. Whatever direction you take, be sure to
elevate the concept of leaving one’s mark on the world through
self-expression.
Some urban culture/lifestyle examples include:
• Music
● Fashion
• Dance
● Entrepreneurialism
• Basketball
● Street Art
SCRIPT CHALLENGE
•
Eligible students may submit scripts and storyboards as an individual or as
part of a team. Up to two eligible students may form a team ("Team").
•
You can be part of only 1 Team but you can submit as many scripts as you’d
like for consideration.
•
The script should be no more than 1-2 pages in length and the storyboard
should follow the template provided.
