2013 Passion Competition Rules and Guidelines

1) The state of being obsessed with someone or something.
2) An idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person's mind.
3) A persistent disturbing preoccupation with an often unreasonable idea or feeling.

Some examples would be:
She has an obsession with cleanliness
He was fascinated by the actress and tracking her every move became an obsession.
Money has become his obsession.

Love, hate, greed, envy and lust can lead a person to become overly obsessive about a person or a thing. The obsession can be a benefit or it can be a pitfall. Which is it for you?

Create a film about your interpretation of obsession.

Rules and Guidelines

Dates: August 24, 2013 to October 19, 2013 (12 midnight EST)

Film Length: The film can be any length. It is preferred if the total length is not over 30 minutes but longer films will be accepted. All judges are required to view the whole film so the longer the films, the longer it will take to judge.

Film Age: This can be a new film or one you have made previously.

Engine: This film can be made using any program you desire (iClone, Moviestorm, The Movies, Poser, Daz, The Sims, game engines such as Halo, GTA, COD, WOW and more) or live action. Any form you desire.

Required Theme Element: Must be about some form of obsession. Any films not done in English must have English subtitles so the judging panel can fully understand the dialog.

Where to upload: Can be uploaded to any site (YouTube, Vimeo, TMU, etc.) but a link must be given in the submission form. (example below) Keep in mind that if the site you upload to requires registration or membership, the videos might not be viewable by the general population. It is preferred that sites like YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion and others be used.

Warnings: Since this competition is open to all ages, if any strong language or nudity is used, a disclaimer must be presented either at the start of the film or on the film page.

Credits: Any use of voice actors, music not supplied with the program of choice or composed by yourself, any mods not made by yourself or an official add-on is recommended to be credited either in the film or on the film page but is not required.
