Indie Filmmakers Needed for Philips Disney Campaign - Submission Deadline Feb. 21

Zooppa's Creative Community is searching for Filmmakers who are interested in submitting 15 second - 2 minute videos for a campaign for Philips and Disney Imaginative Lighting. The mission of each film is to capture the imagination of a child under 9 years of age. This, of course, means that you will need to recruit the help of a young child in order to create a video that really highlights the outlandish imaginations of children. Have a young kid you know help you to write, direct or star in your film. We have a pool of $20,000 that we are waiting to dish out to the top 10 entries! The deadline for submissions is February 21st at 4:00 pm PST.
Go to to read the full brief and to send in your entries. Please also feel free to contact me at [email protected] with any questions.
Good luck and Happy Filmmaking!

    Your submission agreement is a little overly strict.
    • Entrant hereby assigns to Sponsor all right, title, and interest to his/her Entry submitted in Sponsor’s Competition, including all intellectual property rights therein.
    • Sponsor hereby grants to Zooppa a perpetual, irrevocable, nonexclusive, nontransferable, royalty-free, worldwide, limited license to use, reproduce, perform, and display the Entry solely in connection with promotion and marketing of Zooppa’s products or services.
    In the indemnity clause you say entrants will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Zooppa, Sponsor...

    Do you allow for people to email submit with different agreements for use?  Giving up all IP rights to Sponsor means they own it upon submission via their website.  I mean its good that theres a clause saying the entrant can use it in their portfolio though.
    The worldwide license to Zooppa  for the promotion and marketing of Zoopp'a products and services means that 10 years from now Zooppa could be playing that video for something completely unrelated as long as they can say its to promote or market Zooppa's products or services.
    The indemnity clause is the big deal breaker because you are asking for someone to defend you.  Winning 20,000k one year is a nice idea but any lawsuit against Zooppa after the fact is up to the winner to pay for Zooppa's defense.  (thats if you are a winner and Zooppa gets sued.  If you didn't win and Zooppa still uses it later... you are still on the hook for paying for their defense)
