The first annual Shifting Baselines Flix Contest is coming to a close. The SB Flix Contest was an open call for 1-minute videos with the goal of finding new and creative ways to communicate the glaring demise of our global ecosystem, especially that of the ocean. All of the videos had a lot of effort put into them, and some had a unique combination of creative insight and powerful imagery. You can watch the ten finalists on YouTube.
We plan to announce the winners on Tuesday, April 24th. The winners will be selected by celebrity judges Zooey Deschanel ("Failure to Launch"), Gregory Itzin ("24"), Wendy McClendon-Covey ("Reno 911"), Timothy Olyphant ("Deadwood"), Michael Rapaport ("The War at Home"), and Rainn Wilson ("The Office").
