I am giving out one ticket (including round trip airfare) to join me at the Los Angeles premiere of the collaboratively created film under the direction of Spike Lee. To decide the lucky winner, I am having a contest. Here’s the scoop.

How to Win

We want you to recreate your favorite movie death scenes in a Be Kind Rewind style, using a mobile device (like your cell phone). Submit as many scenes as you like. I will pick the best submission based on effort, originality, and creativity. Airfare is only available to people within the United States. Sorry everybody else!

  1. Recreate your movie death scene.
  2. Set up a profile on Nokia Productions.
  3. Upload your movie death scene to Nokia Productions (or here if you have problems uploading).
  4. Tag your movie death scene with “famousdeathscenes”.
  5. Leave a comment on this post with a link to your submission.


But wait, there’s more. Since your death scenes will be submitted to the Nokia Productions movie, they may end up in the final cut of the Spike Lee movie. How cool is that?

Get Filmin’

The deadline for submissions to this contest ends at the end of the day on Wednesday, August 20, 2008.
