Sony's 3D Filmmaking Competition Gives You a Shot at Fame and Prizes

It's also a great way for Sony to generate some 3D content.

This one goes out to all the aspiring filmmakers out there. Or to the folks who aren't, but still want a shot at winning some cool stuff from Sony. The company needs 3D content to give out with their new TVs, and to generate that content, they're holding a contest that gives you a shot at some sweet Sony prize packages. They're looking for ten short videos (5-10 minutes) that demonstrate 3D in the best way possible. If you win, your short will be included on a disc given away with every 3D television Sony sells, which, if nothing else, is some great exposure. But don't worry, you can get stuff too. If you're in the top three, you'll get a 3D home theater system including a BRAVIA television. The next seven winners just get the BRAVIA.

Even if you're not in the top 10, you still stand a chance at walking away with something. The top 50 runners-up will snag a free copy of the 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs' 3D Blu-ray when it is released. Not a bad prize for coming in 60th place!

You've got until July 9th to enter, so take your time and make sure you check out the rules before getting started.
