Finalists set for teen event

Spurring teens to learn digital design

MetaCreations Corp. has selected 24 finalists for the third Annual Teen Digital Movie-Making Competition to screen as part of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, which begins Thursday and runs through March 15.

The Teen Digital Movie-Making Competition, sponsored by MetaCreations, Intel and the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, is designed to encourage teenagers to learn the art of digital design and multimedia production. The 60-second entries were submitted by teams in four categories: action/adventure, comedy, sci-fi and western.

The finalist’s projects will screen during the festival, where prizes will be given out for first place, best of show, and best of Santa Barbara.

In its third year, the competition has announced the formation of an advisory board — members are notables from the film, digital graphics and education industries and include Alfonso Arau (“Like Water For Chocolate”); Ed Burns (“The Brothers McMullen,”); Elizabeth Daly, Dean of the School of Cinema Television at USC; actors Michael Douglas and Laurence Fishburne; director Milos Forman (“The People vs. Larry Flynt); Joshua Greer, CEO of Digital Planet; and James Hindman, co-director and chief operating officer, American Film Institute.
