The Fuel Freedom Foundation is sponsoring a video competition among Chapman University Dodge College of Film and Media Arts students. Participates were asked to produce a one to three minute video that most powerfully communicates our mission, or one or more of the main goals of the Fuel Freedom campaign.
The first of the Chapman videos are now available to the public. To view and vote for your favorites, visit Lights! Camera! Fuel Freedom! The views are important for all the hard working students, as the competition’s main judging criterion is virality.
Whether the students are exposing our addiction to oil, or highlighting the importance of flex fuels, the video competition offers them the opportunity to showcase their creativity as they join the Fuel Freedom campaign to change the national conversation about oil and energy and recruit support to remove the barriers to cheaper, cleaner, American-made fuels.
“Gasoline prices are at record-high levels this year. America can finally kick its oil addiction by opening up the fuel market to competition from cheaper, cleaner, American-made replacement fuels such as ethanol, methanol, natural gas and electricity,” said Fuel Freedom Foundation co-founder Eyal Aronoff. “These videos are a wonderful way to educate people about these barriers to choice in our fuel market, as well as how we can break them down. With fuel choice, the price at the pump will come down, creating a huge economic relief to working Americans.”
The Grand Prize winner will receive $5,000 and two runners-up will receive $2,000. The Chapman University video competition will serve as a prototype for what will become a national Fuel Freedom video competition. The three winning Chapman filmmakers will become eligible for a subsequent competition to produce a five to eight minute mini-documentary. This longer-form competition will include entries from other universities. The Grand Prize winner of the longer-form mini-documentary competition will receive $15,000.
“I am very excited to be a part of this big movement! I am already starting to think about ideas for a longer more informative documentary piece. I am looking forward to help increase awareness of this important issue,” Brandon Wade, a contestant from Chapman University, stated.
