Make a film about the NCAA athletic experience.
Due April 22nd, 2011 -
NCAA athletics are about more than sports. The men and women who compete in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) sports are more than athletes. They are students. They are role models. They are leaders.
Buick is proud to support collegiate athletics, and now they want you to help them celebrate the amazing human achievement that is inseparable from NCAA athletics.
Buick wants you to make your own film about the NCAA athletic experience. Find a former NCAA athlete, and tell their story in a mini-documentary, up to 60 seconds long (closing animation is 6 seconds long, so max total length of your film should be 54 seconds).
Each film should include 2 essential parts:
Part I - An experience, either on, or off the field, which occurred during NCAA scholar/athlete period. This experience, or collection of experiences, shaped the scholar/athlete, making a lasting positive impression on the individual.
Part II – As a result of that experience, an action was taken. Either while in college, or after, the individual made something happen that positively impacted their community, or another individual.
A former NCAA athlete must be interviewed for your films. The NCAA athlete can come from any sport.
