Planet Coaster Productions: Commercial Break

Hi coaster friends!

It’s time for the first ever Planet Coaster video competition: Commercial Break!

We want to see your parks in a commercial light; show us, and all your potential guests, why your rides and coasters stand out and why we should visit!

Starts: Monday May 15, 2017 (NOW)
Ends: Thursday June 15, 2017 at 23:59PM BST

Top 10 announcement: Friday June 23, 2017 at 14:30PM during a special Facebook Live!
Prize: The winner will feature on all Planet Coaster channels and official website (+ feature interview), as well as receive an Elgato HD60 S capture card and HyperX package (keyboard, headset, mouse mat). The entire top 10 will also receive a signed poster.

Here’s what to do:Create a park advertisement video between 30 seconds and 90 seconds long. Use voiceover, texts, special effects – be creative with your editing! If you want a musical touch, you can use any of the Planet Coaster soundtrack songs.

Entries will close on Thursday June 15, 2017 at 23:59PM BST.

Due to the nature of the competition, we are limiting this to one entry per person. We will be working with both the Planet Coaster team as well as our video editors to come up with a top 10 that blow us all away. These 10 winners will be shown during our official Facebook Live session on June 23, 2017.

We will be judging based on creativity, quality, and originality, and, especially in case of close calls, will pay attention to editing, narrative, sound design, and composition. Remember, this should feel like an advertisement for your park, so you’ll get extra points for nailing that part of the brief!

Whoever places first will win an Elgato HD60 S capture card, a HyperX goodie bag (keyboard, headset, mouse mat), and their video will be featured across all of our channels, with a special interview and highlight on our Planet Coaster website! All top 10 entries will receive a signed poster.

Dazzle us with excitement and draw crowds of people to your park!
