Watchmen Contest: Last Chance to Vote

By Sara Pollack

YouTube Film

Calling all film aficionados! Earlier this spring, director Zack Snyder (Dawn of the Dead, 300) asked a favor of the YouTube community. His request? To create a slew of fake "Veidt Enterprises" commercials for his upcoming movie, Watchmen.

Using visual assets available online, hundreds of talented YouTubers heeded the call. Now, 40 finalists are competing for an unprecedented opportunity: a shot at being used in the actual feature film. That's right -- your voting will help determine which of these filmmakers make the jump from your YouTube player straight into a major motion picture.

Voting ends this Friday, June 20, so get out those ballots and help your fellow 'Tubers make their big screen debut.

Happy viewing,
