Getting one’s foot in the door in Hollywood can result in an immeasurable advantage when pursuing a film career, and what could be a better first step than appearing on-stage during the Academy Awards?
Oscars host Seth MacFarlane has teamed with MTVu for “The Oscar Experience College Search,” a contest to find tomorrow’s voices today and give them a step up in the industry.
“Part of the goal with this year’s Oscars is to broaden the audience and get viewers young and old and the like,” MacFarlane told MTV News. “This is part of the effort to bring in a younger crowd, get them invested, get them engaged in the culturally important event that is the Academy Awards.”
All you’ll have to do to enter is to head over to the contest Facebook page and upload a video answering this question: How will you contribute to the future of movies?
“If you’re into comedy, get some laughs. If you’re a dramatic filmmaker, try to say something profound or make somebody feel something,” he said. “It depends on what your particular field of expertise is.”
Entries are due January 19, 2013.
