The contest asks filmmakers to interpret the tagline "It all starts with Nescafe" and to tell stories "where Nescafe ignites possibilities, big and small, that lead to a bright future." Crew states: "We are a very small crew of three looking to learn and grow with actors. So we ask for your patience on set. We are all students who strive for quality and want the best possible outcome to help our actors grow and add another solid piece of work to their portfolios."

Rehearsal and Production Dates & Locations

Shoots one day, in the morning from Aug. 15-17, at Angeles National Forest, CA. Talent may have to hike to certain areas.

Prompt for Contest

Nestle states: "Our lives are too busy, full of many little things that drive us away from what we want to achieve, sap our energy, break our optimism and slow our willingness to do things. People who love life are people who don’t slump around. They want to make the most of their lives.

"How can they do that? A delicious cup of coffee can be the starting point. NESCAFÉ makes a great coffee that inspires everyone to make the most of life. Because it is stimulating, it encourages you to kick-start things you wish to happen, no matter how small.

"NESCAFÉ is embracing the transformation that is all around us. For the young, everything is now social and any moment can be transformed into an opportunity to start something. NESCAFÉ wishes to offer to them, and to everyone, a coffee that is not only the greatest, but also one that offers an experience beyond coffee and an inspiring perspective on life.

"To reflect this transformation, NESCAFÉ came out with a new visual identity and a new tagline: 'It all starts with a NESCAFÉ.'

"The brand would like you to interpret this tagline and to tell us stories where NESCAFÉ ignites possibilities, big and small, that lead to a bright future."
