Cadillac in 5

A film “contest” in which you make a 5 second film… and maybe win a Cadillac.

It’s an interesting concept. How would you do it?

Ultimately, it is hampered by a few factors:

  • The contest is tied in with “Be Cool,” the sequel to “Get Shorty.” I liked the book, I read the first book and liked the first movie. But out of the context of the story, John Travolta / Chili Palmer is just irritating. I don’t want to see him lecturing me about my browser.
  • To add insult to injury, none of the winners are that interesting. To make an actual 5 second short that is compelling is left as an exercise for the reader.
  • Who the hell wants a Cadillac? How trashy.
