A great news came from the comic book adaptation film 'Watchmen' as director Zack Snyder offered the fans a chance to put up their commercial video in the film.
Though the Warner Bros. Pictures' adventure fantasy film "Watchmen" has gone into its post-production mode, it doesn't mean that the fans couldn't participate in the movie. In a YouTube account, director Zack Snyder announced that "Watchmen" and YouTube.com have teamed up to create a contest for the fans entitled "Veidt Enterprises Advertising Contest".
By joining the commercial contest, 40 finalists will get signed posters from the director of "300", whereas the top five from user votes are going to win High-Definition Canon Vixia HG10 camcorders. Further, those who get into Snyder's top 20 list will be handed one thousand dollars. Apart from all those alluring prizes, the ultimate winner will get him/herself made TV ad featured in the film.
All the fans need to do to be up for the once in a life time chance is to come up with a TV commercial for Adrian Veidt a.k.a. Ozymandias who is running for public office in the film, and post it on YouTube before 11:59:59 P.M. ET on June 2, 2008. The complete rules and descriptions for the contest can be read at YouTube.
Adapted from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' comic book series of the same title, "Watchmen" follows a vigilante Rorschach as he investigates the murder of his former colleague and discovers much more than a simple homicide case. The film set in an alternate 1985 America features Patrick Wilson, Billy Crudup, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Jackie Earle Haley, Malin Akerman and many others as the stars. It is set to bow in theaters on March 6, 2009.
