a couple of guys i work with came up with this idea to begin a video story and let others finish it. they called it rootclip. a story is started with a clip from the site team and others have to complete each chapter along the way. chapters submissions are made, and the community along with select judges vote for their favorite. the winner’s submission becomes that next chapter and the next chapter builds where the winner left off. after five chapters, only the winners of the first five submit their idea for the final chapter.
the winners for chapters two through five include a visa gift card and video related prizes. the grand prize winner of chapter six wins a $2,000 gift card. there is a brief tv spot from wbir on their about page.
the previous story completed about a month ago. watch the whole story from beginning to end: “good luck.”
the next story, “chance encounter,” is still taking submissions to date. chapter three was an ingenious idea.
