Vancouver Film School and YouTube have teamed up to create a really unique scholarship, where students create and upload videos, and the YouTube community decides the winners. There are 3 full scholarships up for grabs. I don’t think I’ve seen a school actually hop on board with YouTube for a contest yet. Once I saw it on the homepage under ‘Featured Videos’ I could tell this was going to be something big. Watch the video below for more details, I can’t wait to see how this all unfolds! Very original.
They are also using Google Pages for the rules, etc. More information can be found here. While you’re at it, check out the VancouverFilmSchool channel on YouTube. They’ve uploaded nearly 400 videos of student work. It’s cool to see them use YouTube so heavily; I’m sure it’s hard to showcase student work through your typical boring brochure, especially for a film school!
