Buzzing with ideas but have no where to take them? This is the chance you've been waiting for. They're looking for people with original ideas, buckets full of energy, get up and go, people who dare, who embrace what's new, who like to create, to collaborate, people like you. Idris Elba is inspiring filmmakers to take part, offering the support and technology they need to create a brilliant short film. World-class photographer, Rankin, wants to find a photographer with style that's not been seen before, Gizzi Erskine is searching for a foodie with flair, and the flamboyant Paloma Faith wants to work with a performer fired up by the writing, performing, and artistry of music. Idris explains what he's looking for in his mentee here: It's a no brainer for creatives: a chance to get your hands on Samsung's most advanced technology, work one-to-one with talented mentors in film, food, music or photography, and take part in a Sky 1 HD series about your big launch.
