One quantum bit of information is known as a qubit (pronounced Q-bit). The ability of quantum particles to exist in many different states at once means a single quantum object can represent multiple qubits at once, opening up the possibility of extremely fast information processing.
Here's a simple six-step guide to entering Quantum Shorts 2018. You should also read the official rules here.
First you need an idea. Come up with a storyboard or concept for your short film. Make sure there's something quantum about it. If stuck for ideas, you can start your research in our inspiration section.
Get your team together to shoot, animate or otherwise create your footage. If you want to borrow from other people's stuff, look carefully into copryight rules.
Edit the results into a film that's no longer than five minutes. Make sure it's suitable for a general audience (think PG-13). Make sure it's good!
Check you have the paperwork you'll need if your film gets shortlisted for screenings - waiver and release forms from your team (download here) and music and location releases, if appropriate.
