In keeping with the festival’s aim to promote participation and creativity, anyone with a smart phone and a wifi or 3G connection can take part. Films can be in any style or genre on any subject, but must be shot in one take and streamed live on the Shoot Me Now website.
The only creative limits for Shoot Me Now 2011 were that films had to be shot in one take and streamed live (using the Qik mobile app). Participants who wanted a little bit more inspiration for their film were offered the opportunity to take part in Film Your Egg | Filme Ton Oeuf: The idea was simple: every 15 minutes someone would direct (live) a video sequence in one take which would involve/ be about an egg. There was only one constraint: films had to begin and end with an extreme close up of the egg to ensure a seamless transition between videos.
