There's still time to enter Farmers Weekly's Welcome to Wellywood competition, offering £600 of prizes.
It's giving you the chance to make a spoof of any iconic film scene but give it a farming twist - and the long Jubilee weekend is the ideal time to get out with your camera or video and film your entry.
Forget the Oscars, forget the BAFTAs, we're seeking out film buffs and wannabe moo-vie makers in the British countryside.
It might be a clip from an action or adventure film. Your favourite romantic comedy. A gangster film. A war epic. A love story. Any scene from any film is eligible just as long as your version has an agricultural feel to it. You could be James Bond in a farmyard, Kate Winslet "flying" on the front of a stationary tractor, Dirty Dancing in a barn or posing with your friends, Reservoir Dogs-style, at an event or show.
One recent entry is from Michael Hudson who appears in the clip with his three sons and niece. It's a take on the famous Monty Python's Life of Brian "What have the Romans ever done for us?" sketch which asks "What have farmers ever done for us?" and we like it so much here at Farmers Weekly we're even prepared to overlook the fact that it features other farming publications.
Two volunteers from the Farmers Weekly team (it's fair to say they're "enthusiastic" rather than talented when it comes to acting) have also got in the spirit of the competition, giving a rural slant to a scene from Gladiator. We swapped an epic Roman colosseum with, erm, the equally epic Ashford livestock market. Our version is called Cultivator.
So, whether you're a student, members of a young farmers club, a group of friends or workmates or a family, here's your chance to have some fun and take part in a great competition. TV presenter Matt Baker will be the celebrity judge.
It doesn't matter how short your clip is (30 seconds is absolutely fine), although you may of course have directorial ambitions and want to make it longer.
No need, either, to worry that it won't be of a professional standard - we're looking for clips that make us smile rather than ones that are professionally acted or directed.
Once you've filmed and edited your clip. load it into YouTube and send us the link.
So, move over Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese. Stand aside Meryl Streep and George Clooney - it's time for Farmers Weekly readers to step into the limelight. Welcome, Farmers Weekly readers, to Wellywood.
What do you need to do?
- The competition is open to anyone. Young farmers, college students, work mates, family members or friends - even those involved in any of the ancillary industries or who just happen to live in a rural area.
- Your clip can be as long or as short as you want, and can be as close to - or as unlike - the original as you want. Just as long as we'll recognise the film you're spoofing.
- It doesn't have to be up to BBC production standards. This is a bit of fun so a short video, even if it's filmed on your phone, will be fine.
- The winning video will bag its maker(s) £400, plus £200 of cinema vouchers.
- You can talk about this on Twitter with the hashtag #wellywood
