Cannes 48 Hours competition is now on: Save The Childrens films all over youtube


It was Friday the 13th when the brief went live, but that didn't stop the young creatives from answering the brief with complete edited films uploaded to the Cannes channel, within 48 hours. The brief - make people aware that their support is needed to invest in health around the world, they can sign a petition that will help save lives at Save the children. Lets have a look at a few of the contenders, shall we?

The Collector. Man who collects autographs shows us around his house to point out his favorite signatures.

Smiles will leave you wondering what people are smiling about.

and here's a creepy little animation to top it off.

I've not seen all of the videos, in fact I've had a hard time finding them as they're not centrally listed yet so if you want people to see your video feel free to use the embed code and add it to the comments here. Cheers!

All of these ideas are now at the mercy of the judges.

    Here's another one

    Submitted here Call for help as a commercial (but without uploading the film).

    edit: to clarify, immortalizing your entry in the archives is cool, but if you do that the category should be 'spec work' and the film should be uploaded here, not a youtube link. Cheers.

    Hey, Raimonds_Platacis, sorry about that this morning - I saw your post (I check moderation queue with my morning coffee) but not your comment... and then I dashed off to another busy day so here I see now that you've already posted it in the comments! Thumbs up.

    Double checking all the emails I got, I see those entries here in the comments too. Good job - I'm quite busy and if you want eyeballs now use the power all the spammers know how to abuse and just put it in the comments. Cheers!

    Mentor What is impossible? The brief? Or saving children and women?

    Ben Majoy's entry will yank the heartstrings of every parent out there. Well done.
