  • Have a hero? Got a video camera?

    Students from elementary school through college, get out your video cams! (Adults and pros can enter too.) Create a 10 minute or less DV of someone you admire. Enter it into the My Hero Short Film Festival. Make sure you first read the rules, guidelines, and information. Deadline: September 1, 2009.

    Check out some of my favorites from last year's festival:

    • Don't Give it All Away, a music video by Slater Jewell-Kemker. It was shown at the Environmental Youth G8 Summit in Japan. 1st Place, Music Video category. This film will motivate you to do something to save the planet!
    • PeaceMakers, a film by three elementary school students. 2nd Place, Elementary School category. Find out how to get along with other people!
    • Signs of Peace, produced by a Taft High School student. Honorable Mention, High School category. Learn clever ways to make peace signs!
