Microphone kings RØDE have launched a short film competition, with a bountiful hoard of film gear up for grabs. Here’s how you can enter My RØDE Reel, and potentially get your hands on some of the $70,000 worth of swag…
My RØDE Reel is an international short film competition, and as such you need to enter a short film to be in with a chance of winning (no premium rate phone-ins here). Two films, in fact. Firstly, an original short film on any topic of up to five minutes, and secondly an accompanying behind-the-scenes video that shows a RØDE microphone in use.
What can I win?
This is the exciting bit. The overall winner of the My RØDE Reel Judges’ Film Prize 2014 gets a whole heap of film kit. There isn’t room to fit it all in here, but suffice to say, some of the highlights include a Blackmagic Cinema Camera, a couple of Zeiss lenses, dozens of microphones and accessories from RØDE including the NTG-3, SmartLavs and VideoMicPro, a pair of Event Opal speakers, storage such as the G-Technology G-DOCK ev, camera support and software including a subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud. Phew.
There are also six category prizes – Best Sound Design, Best Soundtrack, Best Documentary, Best Cinematography, Best Location and Best Non-English Film – which all walk away with an NTG-3, Blimp, Boompole and Event 20/20 monitors. Oh, and you get a free RØDE t-shirt just for entering too.
What do I have to do?
Once you’re happy with your film and the behind-the-scenes video, upload them to YouTube with ‘My RØDE Reel 2014′ at the end of the titles, then just fill out the entry form here to be in with a chance. Entries must be submitted between 1 March and 31 May 2014.
