Sprint wants you to create your own Epic Mini Movie highlighting some of the Epic 4G's, well, epicness.

A new contest announced today by the yellow-logoed company wants you to submit your own Epic Mini Movie moments for a chance to win $25,000. The top 10 movies that are the most epic will be hand-picked by director Michael Bay. You know, the guy who directed TransformersTransformers: Revenge of the FallenArmageddonPearl HarborIraq and Bad Boys I and II.

All videos must be uploaded by Nov. 1, and the voting process will start on Nov. 2. If you're interested in the contest and you think you have what it takes to impress Mr. Bay, now is your chance. Be sure to head on over to to find more information on how to enter this contest of epic proportions. Okay, I think we're done saying epic. [Sprint]

  • They don't really explain what you need to do?... not specifically anyway. Am I supposed to Use the EPIC 4G?. Or just do a movie ON the Epic 4G?... And where the hell am I getting an EPIC 4G? lol I have a damn EVO!
  • Epic mini? If you enter the contest name your movie paradox. Is enter it with my evo but they would know I cheated because the film quality would he too good ;) Movie idea you can make a movie showing the evos superiority over the epic.
  • Why do you feel the need to dribble hate nonsense within the android community? Every phone will be superior in something, the Evo included. Interestingly, from what I gather, the Evo's excellent camera is not superior to the Epic's. As I do not have both phones, I can't say with your certainty. Go enjoy your superior phone and leave the comments for worthwhile, relevant discussion.
  • Judged by Michael Bay? Here's how you win. 1) Find a large, empty lot. An abandoned rock quarry is preferable. Set the camera up on the edge of this lot.
    2) Gather as many flammable and explosive materials as you can legally obtain. Put them all in a big pile in the middle of the empty lot.
    3) Set the pile on fire.
    4) Run.
    5) Should you survive, you win.
  • You need lots of shots circling the main subjects around and around (ala Bad Boys and Transformers 2) for Michael Bay to give you the thumbs up.
  • Don't cast Megan Fox in your film either.
