About the Contest:

Are you, or is someone you know, being pushed by parents, teachers, even friends to attend a four year university? Peer pressure is never okay; and if a traditional education isn’t right for you, don’t be afraid to “JUST SAY NO.” Be a part of the solution with the FLASHPOINT ACADEMY INGLORIOUS BASTERDS FILM CONTEST!

Sure, a four year college may have been your Mom and Dad’s first choice, but the truth is we know a lot more about the problems and shortcomings of traditional liberal arts colleges than we used to, and we want to spread the word. For example, did you know that only 37% of students at four year colleges actually complete college in 4 years or less? And that over half of college graduates don’t even get a job related to their major? The facts are crystal clear. Don’t waste your time, money, and energy on an education that won’t take you where you want to go. Make the choice that leads to endless possibilities and exciting opportunities: Flashpoint, The Academy of Media Arts and Sciences!

We want your help to spread the word about the “risks” of four year colleges with a short, 30-60 second Public Service Announcement-style video. (Think along the lines of youtube.com/watch?v=RxvHkFLmqRk for a funny example.) Sit your parents down for a heart to heart, stage an intervention for a friend, or script a moving scene in a Machinima; however you choose to do it, state your case that a 2-year, highly specialized college like Flashpoint Academy is the better choice for a brighter future. Be funny, be creative, but above all, be convincing; the 2 (TWO) Grand Prize Winners will receive 2 (two) tickets to see Quentin Tarantino at the Chicago International Film Festival’s RED CARPET SCREENING of Inglorious Basterds on August 18th, 2009!
