When two quantum objects interact, the information they contain becomes shared. This can result in a kind of link between them, where an action performed on one will affect the outcome of an action performed on the other. This “entanglement” applies even if the two particles are half a universe apart.
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.
