Get Paid To Travel To The Bahamas And Make A Travel Flick

I’m not really one to shill for gimmicky tourism stunts (see Exhibit “1″: that “Best Job in the World” promotion that got over 34,000 applicants), but I really like the idea of this one from The Bahamas (not least of which because I basically do this anyway, but no tourism board is shelling out any money for me to do it).

Here’s the deal. The “14 Island Film Challenge” is a contest where 14 filmmakers will be chosen on December 7th to head to The Bahamas for 2 weeks to film their own movie. The winning director will receive 14,000 pounds for his work, the runner-up will get 5,000. To be among the lucky 14, potential directors must submit a 500-word “treatment” (film-speak for outline) about what they’d like to film. Here’s a link to the full rules.

Unfortunately, the contest is only open to Brits. Sorry Yanks. Since I’m immediately excluded, I shall therefore offer up my own treatment. It would be the rise and fall of a newspaper tycoon who would give it all up for the sake of his lost childhood. This may have already been done, I just can’t think of the name.
