Get on the Rudebox
Shoot a film for Robbie's Rudebox and win a prize that's worth more than money - oh, and win a shed load of money as well...
Robbie Williams and Channel 4 have launched a new competition to find the hottest new film making talent in the UK.
To celebrate the release of his new album, the Robster began collaborating with 7 young guerrilla film makers to make shorts based on different tracks " not videos mind, but short films based on the tracks themselves.
The trouble was, theyve left one track out - 'The '80s' - and this is where you come in
It's one of the pivotal tracks on the album, and was made, Williams explains, in my bedroom in LA with my friend Jerry messing around on my Mac.
He went on, Thats what I like about film today, just like in music you can create a masterpiece out of an i-book and some digital footage.
Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to put together a short film " which can be made on a still camera, a mobile phone or any thing else you can film with really " that uses some or all of the track The 80s in it.
You can upload your video at www.robbiewilliams.com/rudeboxshorts, and the deadline is Monday December 4 2006.
The winners will be judged by the Robster himself, Jonathon Ross, Jules Oldroyd (head of T4) and none other than the Godfather of British film Lord David Putnam. The winner's film will be considered for a screening on Channel 4 as well as possible inclusion on a DVD of films from the collection...
Oh, and theres also two 7,500 prizes to be won " so get up, get out, get rude and get The 80s filmed!
