Have you always dreamed of working with a huge action star, like Arnold, Sly, or Chuck Norris, but thought you'd never have the opportunity? Well, now you do -- kind of. The Funny or Die team has made it possible for filmmakers with a little visual effects knowledge to work with the Muscles from Brussels himself, Jean-Claude Van Damme in JCVD's Make My Movie Challenge. Funny or Die provides you with pre-keyed shots of the famous kickboxer. You provide the final product, and enter to win some great prizes. We're closing in on the deadline, so continue on to find out how to enter.
So, how does the contest work? Jean-Claude explains it all in the video below:
First, you're going to need to download the free pre-keyed footage (you can do that here). Take a look at the footage, come up with an awesome premise, shoot it, then edit JCVD into your video to your heart's content. Once you're done, enter your Van Damme action flick into the contest in order to be in the running to win some pretty awesome prizes, include signed JCVD movies and posters, a full year of Adobe Creative Cloud, and a mini iPad (as if making a movie featuring Jean-Claude wasn't enough).
Funny or Die gave everybody a pretty short deadline to complete their films -- the deadline is March 3rd (winners will be announced on March 5th). In order to submit, you're going to need a Funny or Die account.
In case you need a little inspiration, check out these featured videos from Funny or Die that use the footage from the contest.
Good luck, everybody!
