Hollywood Marketing Departments certainly love a good movie contest, hoping to raise awareness and spark some fan interaction across the Internet. This time around War For The Planet Of The Apes director Matt Reeves and motion capture star Andy Serkis want to see your best impersonation of an ape. What’s the prize up for grabs? A part in War For The Planet Of The Apes as one of Caesar’s apes of course!
The details are in the video, but the gist is that you video your best Ape impersonation and send it in at APESCONTEST.COM, the contest website.
That is certainly a one in a life time experience and a great prize. Visiting the set, donning a motion capture suit and taking part in filming a scene would be something to talk about the rest of your life. Who knows, perhaps you’ll impress Serkis so much he’ll use you in his next motion capture movie.
