This summer, the renowned director/producer Ridley Scott launched a global filmmaker competition called “Tell It Your Way” which followed its Cannes Lions award-winning short-film project “Parallel Lines.” The entrants were given freedom of expression and could take up any theme they wanted; still there were two strict rules—there had to be the exact six-line dialogue as it was in the Parallel Lines films, plus the entries could last no longer than three minutes.
