Make a short film about your own life

The Intergenerational Foundation, the Guardian and the NUS have teamed up
 to look for the best three-minute films exploring what its like to be a
 young person in the UK today. 
  
 Are you 16-30 and living in the UK? Are you full of inspiration and ideas
 for your life but unable to make a start, get a job or somewhere decent to
 live? What's it like to be trapped in short-term rent hell with bad
 landlords and no sign of escape? How do you cope with tens of thousands of
 pounds of student debt? 
  
 Today in Britain 1.5 million people aged under 30 are unemployed. The
 average age of a first-time house buyer has risen to 37 and one in three
 under adults under 30 are living with their parents.
  
 We want your films about being young, gifted and broke. 
  
 You could win two weeks' work experience at Island Pictures or with the
 Guardian's multi-media team, and 1,000. Long-listed films will be seen by
 top documentary filmmaker Christopher Hird, and screenwriter and producer
 Dominic Minghella.
