In short

I received this in an e-mail from my dad this morning.

Director, Sir Ridley Scott launched a global film making contest for aspiring directors.
It's titled "Tell It Your Way."
There were over 600 entries.
The film could be no longer than three minutes, contain only 6 lines of narrative, and it had to be a compelling story.

The winner was "Porcelain Unicorn" from American director Keegan Wilcox.
It's a story of the lifetimes of two people who are totally opposite, yet, very much the same - all told in less than three minutes. You can understand why it won.

The Porcelain Unicorn...

A friend of mine, David Mills, an amazing writer and journalist, once told me that very often the most powerful stories are told with the fewest words.

These three minutes certainly prove that point.

Congratulations Keegan Wilcox!
