Got some time this weekend? Enter the Current TV Ecospot Contest

Got some free time this weekend? Access to a videocamera (even on your phone or as part of your dig cam)? Consider entering the Current TV Ecospot Contest.

“Make a :15, :30 or :60 second ecospot about
TAKING ACTION: Showcase how you, or someone you know, is taking action to alleviate the climate crisis in their own small or big way
OR…
MOTIVATING CHANGE: Create an original, persuasive message that will open eyes, inspire change and empower your audience”

Videos aren’t due until 9/12; for details, here’s the link: http://www.current.tv/ecospotcontest

I had fully intended on entering…in fact I even wrote a script (below); just realized, though, I need to focus a bit (for those who know me, please, stop laughing…please?).

Oh, forgot to mention another reason I decided not to enter the contest; my script is weeaaaaak:
0:00 [A few flowers on a ridge wafting in the wind]
0:03 [From camera left, a knee-down shot of a guy wearing dress pants and dress shoes (#1) walking, stepping on the flower, and walking on]
0:06 [From camera right, before #1 exits, a knee-down shot of a girl wearing jeans and tennis shoes (#2) walking, stepping on the flower, and walking on]
0:08 [From camera right, before #2 exits, a knee-down shot of someone wearing shorts and flip flops walking, about to step on the flower, but stops and moves his foot towards camera]
0:11 [Cut to black; fade in/out with the following text: “it’s not too late”]
0:12 [Cut to black; fade in/out the following text: “to see what we have” ]
0:13 [Cut to black; fade in/out the following text: “to save what we have left”]
