But A Split Second decision could be the start of a successful film career for an upcoming filmmaker as the Transport Accident Commission launches its short-film competition.

The TAC has partnered with the Melbourne International Film Festival for the Split Second Film Competition.

The competition challenges Victorians between 18 and 25 to enter a short film idea that features a message about avoiding distractions while driving and is a reminder for filmgoers to turn off their phones. Judged by a panel of film and advertising industry professionals, the winning concept will receive a $5000 prize and will work with a professional production company to bring their film to life using a $50,000 budget.

Tess Fisher's film 'Adventure' explores the theme of choices between two friends. In one scenario Harry decides to get into an unsafe car on the journey home. On the other hand his friend James decides to take the safer option and walk. Both encounter separate adventures with very different consequences. This short film shows a 'sliding doors' approach to what might happen travelling home from a party environment.
