SYFY Geek Out On Lockdown: Open Call Video Project
Show the world how you are getting through the lock down.

Due March 25th, 2020 - Submit an original and wildly entertaining lo-fi fan video for SYFY that will show the world how you (or your favorite characters) are getting through the lock down.

Social. Isolation. Sucks. We're not gonna lie, we get it. But we're all geeks, we're all creative, and we've all got our own quirky little ways of hanging in there, so let's have some fun while we're stuck at home. SYFY wants to remind people it's okay sometimes to tune out and tune in to what we love for comfort, so they're putting out an open call for original and wildly entertaining short live-action videos - :10, :15, :20, or :30 - that show the world how you (or your favorite characters) are geeking out and getting through this.

Did you just spend the last hour practicing spellwork instead of responding to emails... or try to imagine what Batman would do in the Batcave on Day 15 of the quarantine? That's what they wanna see. Embrace your fandom, whether it's science fiction, fantasy, comic book, horror, whatever.

There are three particular themes of videos SYFY's interested in, below, but feel free to interpret these however you want, and know that high production value is definitely not the point here! SYFY is looking for home-made, lo-fi, DIY style videos, like this.

What are you doing to distract yourself? Bust out the broomsticks, the cardboard boxes, and whatever else you've got lying around to give SYFY a lo-fi parody of your favorite genre movie scene, or show Tongal something else that fits the theme.
How would your favorite character get through this? What's life like for a quarantined Superhero? What's being a vampire-like with social distancing?
How are you still geeking out at home? Are you are playing Dungeons and Dragons via video chat? Are you finally cleaning out your "lair?" Baking a Spider-Man cake?

SYFY's looking to select 5 videos in this initial video phase, but since this lockdown might go on awhile, don't be surprised if they re-open the video phase or run this project again.

Now, HANG IN THERE. GEEK OUT. Things will be okay, so keep creating while quarantined. But also, stay the F**K home!

NOTE: Tongal's priority is to make sure everyone is safe, and along with that, they’re working really hard to keep people working during this strange time. Their advice would be to submit only if you feel you can do something within the anticipated timeline that ensures everyone's safety given today's reality.
