Beware the Golden Doorknob!

Written by Meredith Farley

Deadline for entries is April 3.

Ah, the deadly golden doorknob.

Way back in the 70s, now-retired Professor Skip Landen began giving Park students a simple assignment: make a short film (under five minutes) in which someone is imaginatively killed ... by a golden doorknob.

Over the years the "doorknob film" tradition has continued, and the project has been turned into the illustrious Golden Doorknob Award.

The equipment may be better, but the assignment is the same. Entries may be live-action or animated films, and all students enrolled in the School of Communications are eligible to enter the contest.

Did we mention there are cash prizes?

1st Place: $3,000
2nd Place: $2,000
3rd Place $1,000
The Parkie 100 Knob Award: $500.00 (This prize is awarded to students who have taken only 100-level production classes and who will be judged in a separate category.)

So Parkies, what are you waiting for? The deadline is April 3. Go film your doorknob!
