About

I'm a comedy director and writer. I'll post my projects on here, but I'll mainly be posting bizarre things I find online. If you want to see my work, you can see it all at PaymanBenz.com. I love you.

"Filmmaking" Contests

Fellow Filmmakers. Please don’t enter “competitions” that ask you to make spec ads for real companies. It’s shady. It’s gross. Don’t do it.

I’m writing this because I was contacted by a company who emailed me with a “great opportunity” to make a commercial for AT&T, and that there are “up to” $30,000 in awards. I responded that I believe what they’re doing is gross and wrong, and it tricks filmmakers into making commercials and posting them on social networking websites for their friends & family to see: thus giving the product more exposure.

The Doritos Super Bowl contest is the biggest offender here. I implore you all to not enter that contest, or any like it. Don’t make a commercial unless you’re being paid to.
