Stargazer Finalist
Judges will select three (3) Stargazer finalists to participate in the 2014 Project Stargazer Lab.


CATEGORY RULES
Anyone -- from first-time screenwriters and filmmakers to seasoned professionals -- can submit their story idea to Project Stargazer. Applicants must integrate at least one NASA technology into their story. Only ONE submission per applicant is allowed unless applicant is working on another project in a different role.

Submissions must include:

logline
synopsis
treatment
artistic statement describing your creative vision for the project

Submissions must also clearly feature one or more NASA technologies in the story. You can find out about NASA technology at: http://www.nasa.gov , http://www.youtube.com/user/NASAexplorer or http://ipp.gsfc.nasa.gov/featured_tech.shtm .

The main characters should reflect the multi-cultural panorama of the 21st century. A panel of entertainment industry and NASA judges will score each submission based on originality, story idea, characters, tone, visual style, marketability, and use of NASA technology. Ten (10) semi-finalist Stargazers will be selected.

At HBFF 2013, the semi-finalist Stargazers will participate in an intensive workshop that includes individual one-on-one meetings and master classes with top industry writers, directors, producers and science/technology consultants to assist in the further development of the Stargazer projects. Each Stargazer will have the opportunity to pitch their projects to a panel of judges who will select three (3) Stargazer finalists to participate in the 2014 Project Stargazer Lab. Finalists will be announced at the HBFF 2013 Closing Night Ceremony.
