The Mail Tribune's Two-Minute Movie Contest has now moved into the final phase, which means readers can vote for their favorite two-minute movie.
Since the contest opened in March, locals have been uploading their videos — all two minutes long or less — on a variety of topics. The contest has no theme other than the two-minute time limit, and Rogue Valley residents have submitted videos as simple as clips of their pets, to complex arching fictional story lines.
Go to www.mailtribune.com/twominute to view the 19 submissions. You can log in through Facebook or create a log-in of your own to comment and vote for your favorite. The deadline is midnight Friday, April 27.
The submission that receives the most votes will win the People's Choice prize of a $20 gift card to Human Bean.
Three other winners will be selected by our panel of judges. The judges are:
- Wendy Conner, operations manager of the Ashland Independent Film Festival.
- Robert A. Clift, assistant professor of film, media and convergent media in the Southern Oregon University communications department. He is also a practicing filmmaker whose work has included fictional, documentary and experimental nonfiction.
- Ray Robison, Southern Oregon Film and Television board member and winner of the Mail Tribune's Spooktacular video contest with his trailer for the film "Vampire Camp."
