Calling all budding film-makers: WhatCulture have teamed up with the Oddsfather to give one lucky reader the chance to win a TFT 12.0 MP HD Digital Video Camcorder worth £80 in return for a little creative juice.

In conjunction with Ladbrokes Vegas, who launched the brand new Oddsfather campaign today, starring football legend Chris Kamara – which hands out £30 in free bets for a £10 stake, we want you to recreate your favourite movie scenes in the most creative way you can think of.

So, whether you’re a fan of Star Wars or you can’t get enough of The Godfather itself, it’s time to take to your homemade studios, cast your leads and get shooting.

How To Enter

Once you’ve finished your masterpiece, entry to the competition is simple:

  • Firstly, email it to us at
  • Then tweet the film or pictures to us on Twitter at @whatculture, using the #makeascene hashtag, and we’ll choose a winner from all of the entries.

That winner will be announced at the end of September, so get involved now.

And if you need inspiration, look no further. Thanks to the wonders of technology, we’ve put together a loving tribute to one of the finest, and certainly the most enduring image from the Lord Of The Rings, and I think you’ll agree, our redo really captures the energy and emotion of Gandalf’s climactic final stand against the almighty

You Shall Not Pass

A masterpiece, obviously. And fear not, this beauty will not be officially entered in the poll.
