Creative?
Creative 
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

You Tube Short Film Contest

You Tube Short Film Contest

YouTube is launching a film festival that will play out online and send 10 finalists to the Venice Film Festival.

The Google-owned video site announced that Your Film Festival will take submissions of short films up to 15 minutes in length between February 2 and March 31.

Fifty semi-finalists will be selected by Scott Free Productions, Ridley and Tony Scott's production company. Those 50 films will form a channel on YouTube: www.YouTube.com/yourfilmfestival. There, users will be able to view the films and vote for their favourites. The 10 finalists will be flown to the 69th annual Venice Film Festival, where their films will be screened in August.

The only restrictions besides length are that entrants must be at least 18 years old and that the work cannot have been distributed prior to January 1, 2010.
