Tom Hiddleston talks short film competition 'Done In 60 Seconds'

By
Tom Hiddleston has discussed his role as judge and ambassador for upcoming short film competition Done In 60 Seconds.

The competition, which will take place as part of next year's Jameson Empire Awards, will ask amateur filmmakers from across the world to remake their favourite film in a 60-second form.


"I was honoured to be asked, because I think in our industry it's so important to keep the doors open," Hiddleston told Digital Spy, "and keep inspiring and invigorating new filmmakers to come through and allow them to work.

"There's something fun about this constraint of a minute, because sometimes I think it sharpens your instincts, it makes you more economical about story and tone."

Five finalists will be selected by Hiddleston and his fellow judges, with the winner revealed at the Jameson Empire Awards ceremony.

Next year's Jameson Empire Awards will be held in London on Sunday, March 24, 2013.
