Personal Note: For those interested in joining this contest, here is my unsolicited advice. You only have 15 seconds max to convey what you have to say, so keep your message simple but with impact. Your video must not contain any sound or talk, just plain visuals. Probably, the reason behind it is that if your entry is chosen, San Marino will use your video as a commercial on electronic billboards, which most of the time doesn't feature sound. Also, no white background probably because your video might become too bright for the billboards, which might cause vehicular accidents (just my guess)...

You can even be creative by using strong visuals and actions - just like a TV commercial. Also, if you are serious in winning this, then you must integrate the San Marino brand in your video. Although the criteria says brand integration is only 5% of the total score, in order to win every point counts.

It's a cool contest, and you may even be featured as a commercial in an electronic billboard! Think of it as your 15 seconds of fame.
