Fantastic Mr. Fox Design and Film Competition

Fantastic Mr. Fox

Gen Art is holding a contest for designers and filmmakers in celebration of Fantastic Mr. Fox.

Gen Art has partnered with Fox Searchlight for a new competition in which filmmakers and designers come together to create five online shorts, each demonstrating how to make your own Halloween costume based on the upcoming Fantastic Mr. Fox, directed by Wes Anderson (Rushmore, Bottle Rocket, The Darjeeling Limited).  The film is based on the popular children’s book by Roald Dahl.

Selected filmmakers and designers will win cash stipends for each costume and video showcased, followed by a final round in which one team will win a bonus cash prize of $1000.

Details are available at Gen Art’s site, where you can enter as a designer and a filmmaker. Please send us anything you enter and we’ll share it right here.
