3MS startup video-story contest – closes 20 Sep 2019
Video-stories are super useful, especially for a startup (see the below example).
Here’s your chance to get a free video-story on your startup!
If you are a bootstrapped startup, with less than 12 employees, you can apply for the “3MS startup video-story contest”. Five winners will get a chance to feature in a 3MinuteStory (3MS) each. 3MS (3minuteStories) is my brand of documentary style short-video.
Just fill the below form before 20 Sep 2019 – or, if for any reason, the form doesn’t go through – you can also email me the answer to the form-questions (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com)
- Deadline to apply: 20 Sep 2019
- Selection announcement date: 30 Sep 2019.
- Shooting period: Oct- Nov 2019.
- Publishing period – Dec 2019-Jan 2020
- How interesting the final video-story may come out to be – many otherwise great stories (on paper / in a talk) do not always translate well to a documentary style video (for various reasons).
- How much variety can be showcased via the five films – for example, it would be odd to make say 3 films just on healthcare tech product. So basically if you are in a sector from where too many startups apply, you may have a tougher chance.
I – Amrit – started this platform in 2015 after making a career shift (IIT/management consulting background). Most of my work is commissioned where startups, companies, universities, schools, non-profits etc. hire me to help crate video-stories of different kinds, serving different purposes. I have made over 50 films since starting 3MS.
If you are a funded startup, and don’t qualify to apply for this contest, you can always hire me. The typical fee for one 3MS is ~1.5 lakh + GST (for any city in India). Below is another example of a video-story that I recently created for a startup (from IIT Madras).
