MEDIA ALERT: SUPERFAN PANEL OF JUDGES ANNOUNCED FOR GLOBAL #GOROGUE FAN VIDEO CONTEST
“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” Director Gareth Edwards to Lead Judging Panel with Her Universe Creator Ashley Eckstein, YouTube Stars EvanTube and Chris Pirillo, and More
With less than a week to go in the global #GoRogue video short contest celebrating “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” fan content, DCPI has announced the official panel of judges who will weigh in on the entries from around the world.
The global contest, which kicked off September 30, invites fans to share their own “Rogue Stories” or skits set in a galaxy far, far away… for a chance to attend an advance screening of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” at Lucasfilm in San Francisco and to see their own story on the big screen. Winners also will tour Rancho Obi-Wan, which houses the world’s biggest collection of Star Wars toys, memorabilia, and artifacts.
Judges include “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” director Gareth Edwards; Her Universe creator Ashley Eckstein, who also voices the popular ‘Ahsoka Tano’ on “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” and “Star Wars Rebels”; YouTube sensations EvanTube and Star Wars superfan Chris Pirillo; Tongal co-founder James De Julio; and Jimmy Pitaro, Chairman, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media.
“Star Wars fans are so creative and I am constantly amazed by the awesome content they create! I cannot wait to see the “Rogue One” inspired stories they come up with for the chance to win this once in a lifetime prize,” said Ashley Eckstein, voice of ‘Ahsoka Tano’ and founder of Her Universe.
When the contest wraps Oct. 21, judges will get to work selecting winners based on grasp of filmmaking, quality of storytelling, character development, originality and overall entertainment value.
