Due September 29th, 2020 - Produce a short animated video that cleverly brings the SYFY logo to life and captures what being home for the holidays looks like this year with a uniquely genre spin.

SYFY is the Alpha and the Omega of genre. They've got everything from cyberpunk sci-fi to futuristic fantasy and the boldest, bloodiest horror film you've ever seen. Raise your freak flag high, SYFY's got you, and then let's talk once again about their logo initiative, where artists, animators, designers, and directors are given the chance to bring the SYFY logo to life in an artistic and incredibly cool TV spot.

This year, everyone's going to celebrate the holidays a little differently. For many, travel plans have been put on hold, get-togethers have been reimagined, and some of us will just be spending this holiday season at home. SYFY wants to acknowledge that reality by showing all the festive ways our favorite genre characters bring holiday cheer into their own castles, underground lairs, and command centers. When they say "holidays," they basically mean anything that goes down in the months of November and December, including Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve.

SYFY wants to see a variety of genres represented in these videos. So you can mash up different genres in one video, OR, consider submitting multiple pitches where you explore a different genre in each. The goal here is to end up with a stylish and highly visual TV spot that will bring the SYFY logo to life in an unexpected way. This is not about a narrative so much as it is about creating a fun way to set up and subvert audience expectations when it comes to the familiar holiday scenes that we all know and love.
