    Hi friends

    The first masterclass video is up and running and now the real fun starts. In this video, we asked you to send us some questions relating to smartphone filmmaking. We’re excited to hear from all of you and will try to answer as many questions as we can. Use #OnePlusMasterclass as a title for your questions to Giacomo and he will try to help you get the creative juices flowing.

    The next step is to ask yourself the question: “Do I have a story to share?”. Tell us what it is by filling in this Google Form. Submit your idea with a title and well-formulated plot. Explain how the story will begin, what will happen in the middle and finally, how it will end.

    We will select the top ideas and these finalists will then progress to the next round.

    How to submit your idea:
    • Create your own Forum account if you don't have one yet.
    • Take your time to make sure you have a clear idea of what your vision is for this short story.
    • Think of a catchy movie title and tell us what your idea is in 250 to 300 words. Divide the story into 3 sections: Start, middle and end.
    • Then, click on the Google Forms link to submit your story between now and 11 March.
    How does it work?

    For the next couple of weeks, we’ll be releasing instructional videos on the fine art of film making, from concept to final product. Not only will you be able to learn from Giacomo himself, but you will also be able to join our competition and stand the chance of winning some pretty awesome prizes.

    Each video will contain a movie-based task for you, our budding filmmakers, to complete. Once submitted we’ll select the top candidates. These candidates will go through to the next round and will eventually be in line for the chance to win the grand prize of $10,000.

    What are the prizes?

    We want to encourage all our contestants to dig deep and produce really high-quality footage. In order to help with this, our top 10 finalists will each receive a OnePlus 6T on which to shoot their final films. Out of these 10 contestants, we will select the final winners.
    • First prize - $10,000, two OnePlus devices and a gimbal.
    • Second prize - $4,000 and two OnePlus devices.
    • Third prize - $2,000 and one OnePlus device.
    Do you think you have a creative eye? A story worth telling? Join the OnePlus Filmmaking Masterclass and see your dream come true on screen.

    Terms and Conditions:
    • Entries in English Only.
    • If chosen, you agree to complete all requirements on time and in an honest manner for this task and all tasks that follow.
    • Upon submitting your idea, you agree to provide OnePlus with the free right to use and publish any production materials (video, pictures, articles, etc.) that are generated and submitted during the competition period.
    • OnePlus reserves all rights to this event. The views and opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of OnePlus.

    Doesn't look necessary, that might be for new users who want/need to create a thread.. Picking people from the forums seems very inefficient cuz they'll have to go though each thread, gforms is everything in one place! (ok sorry that's too much rambling lol)

    There's no need to create a new thread for the entry in the forums, in case some ideas are duplicated and there'll be some problems in selecting the final winners. :)

    Malindi in her original post added instructions for new joiners to create a new thread, hence asked! :)

    This sounds fun, super excited to see the entries!! Not sure if I'll have the time to make one in time myself, but this is a great way to learn some new video making skills. Hope to see more contests/tutorials about filmmaking on smartphones in the future! :D

    Great idea. I'm here for the film making tips, as I'm not sure I'll have time to enter the competition. Looking forward to seeing how it pans out.

    The Google Form seems to accept max 300 characters, not 300 words.
