Are you a student filmmaker interested in making educational public service videos? Probably not. But how about a student filmmaker who likes cold, hard cash? That's more like it, right? Either way you're in luck, because the SF Giants Sweep video contest is now taking submissions, and the winners will get $1,000.

We're guessing that's much better than what you're making for your weekly chores.

The 30-second videos need to promote the SF Giants anti-litter campaign to make San Francisco an even more beautiful city.

While three's a long list of rules you have to follow if you want your video to be judged, with the most important one being that you're a student in middle school, high school or college. There will be a winner from each age group.

The winning videos will be posted on the SF Giants Sweep website and the always informative, but definitely not exciting, SFGovTV. The deadline for submission is Feb. 28, 2014.

The SF Giants Sweep is a collaborative effort among the Department of Public Works, the Mayor's Office and the San Francisco Giants. It is, of course, named after the Giants World Series Sweep of the Detroit Tigers.

According to the SF Giant Sweep website, our city's street sweepers collected more than 7,000 tons of litter last year. Another 7,000 tons of unwanted mattresses, couches, and other large unwanted items were dumped onto the streets. You know who you slobs are.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
