BAFTA offer you 60 seconds of fame

So, you’ve always wanted to sling your short flick together but just don’t have the time? Well how about a 60 second short film? Sounds like something you could commit to? There. See. Now you don’t have any excuse.

BAFTA and Orange are on the look out for anyone age 16 and over to create and film a one-minute flick for their '60 Seconds Of Fame' competition.

Backed by the BBC, each shortlisted flick will be shown by each of the 15 BBC Nations and Regions and will then put to a public vote. One winner from each area will then win two tickets to the Orange BAFTAs in 2007.

The overall gong-clincher will have their film shown as part of the BBC One broadcast of the BAFTA ceremony.
