Show Hot Wheels pulling off authentically insane or impossible trick
Due April 24th, 2017 - Pitch your take on The Impossible Trick Series featuring Hot Wheels! Your Series should feature Hot Wheels pulling off authentically insane or impossible tricks that will wow audiences. The Series should feature all of the epic fails and wild crashes that it took to achieve what looked to be impossible.
For 50 years, Hot Wheels has inspired generations of boys to push the limits of their imagination, and more importantly, to have the resilience to overcome any challenge that gets in their way. Hot Wheels is more than just a toy; it’s a purpose-built, jumping, crashing, flying, speed machine racing through a world without limits. A place where the only failure is not trying and success is measured in high-fives, jumped dragons and OMGs. A place where young minds discover that limits are meant to be challenged, not obeyed. Hot Wheels is a vehicle for self-expression and self-confidence. It’s the power of play. Supercharged. It’s fun, not formulas. Hot Wheels is the original stunt brand.
The Impossible Trick Series should feature all of the epic fails and wild crashes that it took to achieve the impossible. Show that massive moment of excitement and elation when the trick is completed. The series should have a repeatable format that is easily identifiable to boys ages 8 to 10 and should be engaging and understandable for Boys 5 to 7 as well. Please include a few sample episode springboards with your Pitch treatment.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR FILMMAKERS: While we want your imaginations to run free and to create mind-blowing tricks that no has ever seen, keep in mind that budgets will be limited, so please avoid locations that are expensive or impossible to shoot.
The primary objective is to create an entertaining and exciting Hot Wheels focused Series for YouTube that features Hot Wheels doing amazing and impossible tricks and captures all of the fails and behind the scenes work that went into achieving that “impossible” trick.
