If yes, read on to know more about Jameson Empire’s Done In 60 seconds.

To quote from the official release, Yes, you must take a piece of cinematic genius (or not-so-genius if you prefer), distill it to its very essence and cram it all into a time frame shorter than the life expectancy of the comedy sidekick in a slasher movie. After all, 90% of most movies is just time-wasting anyway. There are easily enough seconds in a minute to defeat the bad guy, get the girl and ride off into the sunset.

To take part in this year’s competition and be in with a chance of winning a Jameson Empire Award and attending the star-studded and glittering Jameson Empire Awards ceremony in March 2012, grab some mates, blag a camera from somewhere and get shooting. To 60 seconds and not beyond!
