The huge short-film competition run by Rode microphones is back for another year, offering the chance to win a steaming great pile of gadgets.
“My Rode Reel” asks you to create a 3-minute video plus a “behind the scenes” film which must, unsurprisingly, demonstrate the use of Rode products. Those videos must be uploaded to YouTube and an entry submitted before June 1st, 2015.
The prizes include stuff from Rode, F&V, Adobe, Red Giant, Atomos, Zeiss, Kessler, Teradek and many more, with a total prize fund value of $200,000. Yes, you read that right.
Categories include Best Drama, Best Horror, Best Documentary and there’s a new Young Filmmaker award to encourage people under 18 both to get into film making and to enter the competition. Last year, the company received 1,120 entries from 76 countries
For the full list, all the terms and lots of encouragement, head on over to www.myrodereel.com. All entrants get a t-shirt so that’s gotta be an incentive!
