It’s your chance to get creative by taking part in a competition to make a trailer for this year’s DVD release of Tim Minchin’s Ready For This?

To be in with a chance of winning you need to create a trailer, upload it to YouTube, and then get all your family and friends watching it!

Tim will be picking the winner of the competition himself, from the 3 entries that get the highest video views, so clock up those view counts!

The trailer can be as imaginative and creative as you like, from using plasticine models of Tim to creating animations!

All we ask is that all submissions must contain the following:

  • Feature the title ‘Tim Minchin Ready For This?’
  • Show the release date – 29th Nov 2010
  • Include the DVD packshot
  • Showcase a song/s from Ready For This?

We will also supply you with the following content to help you get started

  • 3 clips from Ready For This?
  • Packshot
  • List of quotes

Clips, quotes and packshots are available to download from here


The winner will receive £500 of Apple vouchers (ker-ching!) and the winning trailer will be added to Tim’s YouTube and Website for the world to see!

In order that we can find your clip please tag it with ‘minchincomp’ on YouTube when you upload it.
