      We shoot the first ‘chapter’ in a story. You (the users) are then to shoot the following chapters, each one continuing the story started by chapter 1, or the ‘rootclip’ (clever, I know). The user community votes on the submissions and every 2 weeks a new chapter contest begins. There are 4 chapters that are open to the public, with the 6th and final chapter acting like a ‘finals’ of sorts. The chapter 2,3,4 and 5 winners are the only ones eligible to submit a video for the final scene, which will be chapter 6 and take home the grand prize.

      We’ve upped the prizes too. The chapter winners (bi-weekly) receive a $500 VISA gift card, and the ‘final scene’ winner gets the pleasure of meeting Michael Moore. Yes THAT Michael Moore, and it will be at the Traverse City Film Festival in Traverse City, MI August 1-3. We cover flight, room and food, so just bring your pretty face and a friend. Here is the video for Chapter 1, and it’s your job to continue this story at rootclip.com

      Here’s the link in case you guys were looking for it…

      Also, here’s a blog post about how the site works and what the prizes are. I think there was a mistake in the title where it said “$2500”. They had a beta test a while back that ended with a $2500 winner, but the current contest grand prize is a trip for 2 to the Traverse City Film Festival to see the debut of the entire Rootclip film entitled “Good Luck” and to meet with award-winning documentary filmmaker Michael Moore.
