Artists HeHe have turned our Gallery 1 into a miniaturized Fracking site complete with bursts of fire, a pool of toxic water and earth tremors. Fracking has been described as a disaster waiting to happen and ‘incredibly dangerous’. Inspired by HeHe’s work we are launching the Disaster Vine Competition!!

Using the 6 second video app, Vine (available to download for free on Android and iPhone), we want you to create a short disaster movie. We’re talking fire, explosions, earthquakes, floods, asteroids, hurricanes, basically anything dangerous!

The videos will be judged on how fun, exciting, interesting and hazardous they look with members of FACT staff and filmmakers sitting on the judging panel.

The top five Vines will be on show on fact.co.uk for our thousands of daily visitors to see and the creator of the winning video receive a free FACT membership, a copy of our We Are the Real Time Experiment book and a selection of other exclusive FACT prizes!

To submit your video, just tag it with #TFIOcomp and the winner will be announced 16 August.
