Slingshorts Film Festival! – Submit your own Slingshot video!

The Slingshot by Polaris is a brand-new three-wheeled adventure that blasts through traditional thresholds of excitement. An exhilarating cross between sports car and motorcycle, the Slingshot thrusts enthusiasts into a whole new lifestyle that celebrates the brilliant sights and sounds of the coolest highways and byways around the globe–as Slingshots penetrate the natural beauty that surrounds, but often escapes, us.

SlingShorts means to assemble 2-5 minute videos that capture the incredible Slingshot vibe–with the best heart-stopping, breath-taking, eye-popping, crowd-wooing, nature-loving video clips imaginable–shot of, by, and for Slingshot enthusiasts.
The following categories are suggestive of content, but will exclude nothing. .
> water shots (oceans, lakes, rivers, etc.)
> city shots (great cities like Denver, SF, New Orleans, NY; or out of the way spots; etc.)
> mountain shots (Rockies, Sierras, Appalachians, Smokies, Adirondacks, etc.)
> country shots (deserts, plains, rolling hills, etc.)
> road shots (US 66, US 50, Az 666, NM 555, US 101, etc. YOU know the good ones!)
> hood shots (your favorite ‘hood; maybe where you want to live–or not!)
> mug shots (people’s reactions to your SS, etc.)
> still shots (photo’s of your SS at cool or famous spots, or showing off your mod’s)

All selected submissions will be screened on a looped basis at the SPRINGSLING event at El Toro AFB in Orange County, Ca. on May 20-22.
