Guerrilla Games want you to create a Killzone 3 trailer for them. Budding Film makers and Killzone fans should read on. There’s no information just yet on any kind of prize but it still sounds like an incredibly interesting competition. Thanks to the KZ Blog:
We knew Killzone fans are a creative bunch, but the recent live-action Killzone: Extraction short by pwnisher completely blew us away. It also got us wondering: how many other talented filmmakers are there in the Killzone community?
To find out, Killzone.com will be hosting a “Create Your Own Killzone 3 Trailer” video contest from March 18 to March 31. No, don’t worry – unlike the pwnisher crew, you won’t have to crawl through muddy trenches to obtain spectacular video material. On Friday, March 18, we will put three sets of H.264-encoded Killzone 3 footage (Jungle-themed, Space-themed, and Launch Trailer-themed) up for download on Killzone.com.
What you do with the footage is largely up to you – you can stick to one particular theme, mix and match the three sets, cut them into a fast-paced promo like the Killzone 3 launch trailer, splice in live-action shots of yourself to create a funny Kevin Butler
-esque commercial, or even add narration to mimic a mini-documentary about life on Helghan.
Between March 18 and March 31 there will be a special thread in the Killzone.com forums where you can post a short description and link to your submission. The video itself can be hosted on a video sharing service such as YouTube
. We will post full instructions and rules along with the Killzone 3 footage on March 18.
So remember to check back here on Friday, and in the meantime – start brushing up on those editing skills!
