DailyMotion, a video sharing Web site, and The Weinstein Company are running a new fanboy video contest announced today to find the ultimate Star Wars fan. The winner of this online contest will win a walk in role in the upcoming comedy Fanboys, as well as having his or her video promoted on the Fanboy Web site and included as a special feature when the feature film comes to DVD.
Contestants will need to submit their videos through the official contest Web site. The competition, which runs from July 25, 2007 to August 31, 2007, will find Dailymotion users voting for their favorites throughout the competition. The producers will choose the winner from the 10 finalists that received the most votes by the users.
Fanboys is described as a comedy which “follows a group of young friends on a cross-country quest to break into Skywalker Ranch and see Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace before it is released. The film stars Sam Huntington (Superman Returns), Chris Marquette (Joan of Arcadia), Dan Fogler (the upcoming Kung Fu Panda), Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars) and Seth Rogan (Knocked Up).”
