    For when you have nothing better to do.

    Can you answer yes to any of the questions below?:

    Are you bored?
    Do you have trouble sleeping at night?
    Do you work the night shift and don't really have anything to do while you are at work?
    Are you on break from school and have run out of things to Google?
    Do you sit in your car during rush hour and use your cell/smart phone when you know you shouldn't?
    Do you ride the train/bus and have a boring commute?
    Are you up for a challenge?
    Would you like to help young female filmmakers?

    If your answer is yes to any of those questions, then see if you can help break the 50/50 tie on the Skintimate Studios Film Challenge by voting for the film "Save Our School" as many times as you like from now until August 30th at:

    Maybe YOUR vote will be the ONE to break the tie and help Team S.O.S (Save Our School) win!

    It's funny, I've voted for a dozen of times but the rating has not changed. Does it even work? It's strange that rating had been frozen in that position, it's like an artificial situation. Anyway, nice film, good job. I'll keep voting when I have time.

    Now you know why it is a challenge! It has been 50/50 for days now. When it first started, Team S.O.S was in the 90s and then all of a sudden dropped to the 60s and then it just went to 50/50.

    My daughter is one of the filmmakers for Team S.O.S., so I thank you for the votes as she will get scholarship money and a trip if her team wins.

    YES!!! We won by 600 votes and I am certain they all came from this amazing forum!!! This means that my daughter now has her very FIRST college scholarship!! You all should be very proud of yourselves. You have done a great thing.

    She is also going to be flown to NY and put up at a fancy hotel for a RED CARPET premier of her team's film!!!

    For those of you who watched the film... we all know it was not anything amazing. But for eighteen teenage girls who never met before and most of them never used any film equipment prior to this, it was a really great experience. They spent two days casting the actors, then spent a few days learning all about the equipment. One day to shoot the film and one day to edit. That was IT!

    Their airfare and hotel in LA was paid for and most of their meals too (also the airfare for a chaperone). Any money needed to make the film was paid for by the companies involved as well. It really was a once in a lifetime thing and all they had to do to apply was to answer two questions either in essay form or on video. NO entry fee. Then there was a telephone interview (they called her) and that was it. It cost us nothing.

    So, now you can say you actually know someone who won a big contest and it was really like they said it was!!!

    Oh and Morris, they made fun of him the entire time and have been joking about him ever since.

    The Judge by the way, he is a famous actor. His name is Tom Virtue and he has been in lots of things. He is currently the minister on The Secret Life of the American Teenage and was the dad on Even Stevens. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0899487/ He actually just came to the open auditions and the girls were all excited to have him in their film and he was super nice to them.

    Thanks again for caring so much and supporting her!
