THE reality competition series "China's Got Talent" has invested 1 million yuan (US$157,000) in selecting outstanding short films and original scripts, producers of the show said at the 15th Shanghai International Film Festival.
So far, several thousand short films made by amateur filmmakers have been submitted through 10 or so websites such as Youku.com and Sina.com. All of the entries are themed on dreams.
Based on online votes and expert views, the winning entries will be honored during the final of the upcoming fourth season of "China's Got Talent," which will be broadcast later this year. The short films, most of which range in length from 30 to 60 minutes, also have a chance to be screened at the UME cinema chain.
"We hope to discover gifted young filmmakers and untapped talents who may be starring in these films," said Tian Ming, a producer of "China's Got Talent."
Tian added that "China's Got Talent" will be more than a TV show as they plan to develop it into a cross-media cultural brand by extending its content to websites and musical dramas.
