Calling all Star Voyagers

Calling all star voyagers
Calling all Star Voyagers

The Australian Centre for the Moving Image wants you to zip up your space suits, grab a camera and show them that you have the right stuff to be the ultimate space adventurer.

ACMI are looking for a crew of space cadets for a journey with a difference to celebrate their forthcoming exhibition Star Voyager: Exploring Space on Screen.

For a chance to join the crew, share a photograph or a short video that best demonstrates your astronaut credentials. It might feature you taking a spacewalk, staking a claim on a far-away planet or blasting off in a home-made rocket ship. Push your creativity to warp speed!  

ACMI's Mission Control team will assess the entries and will hand-pick an elite crew of Star Voyagers to be part of an interplanetary event with a difference.

First of all, the selected entries will be kitted out with tickets to the Star Voyager: Exploring Space on Screen exhibition, merchandise and movie passes. One of these entries will also receive a Celestron AstroMaster Refractor Telescope valued at over $250.

On Saturday 19 November all shortlisted cadets will head to ACMI's Mission Control (Studio 1), climb aboard rocket ship and, with the help of green screen technology, be transported into outer space. They will star in a one-off adventure film which will premiere at a red carpet screening in the weeks following.

To apply for a position on the crew, budding cadets need to upload their photo to ACMI's website so it can be added to ACMI's Flickr page. If you have a video to share, upload it to YouTube and send ACMI the link on the registration page so they can beam it through ACMI's YouTube channel. Remember: all good crew members will read the terms and conditions before applying.

Applications close Friday 4 November 2011.

Star Voyager: Exploring Space on Screen opens at ACMI on 22 September and runs until 29 January 2011.
