Entrants to ‘My RØDE Reel’ are required to create a short film of three minutes or less, as well as a behind-the-scenes reel that features a RØDE product being used during the production of the film. RØDE has provided an entry pack that steps through the process, as well as templates for scripting, storyboarding and more, available now by registering at www.myrodereel.com
Awards with prizes of filmmaking kit
There are three main awards:
- Judges’ Film award for the best short film in competition
- Judges’ BTS award for the best behind-the-scenes reel
- publicly voted People’s Choice award for the most popular short film.
Each award winner will be presented with an enviable production filmmaking kit valued at more than $40,000. The overall prize pool totals to an amazing $200,000.
Additional technical and genre awards, and prize packs, are available for Best Sound Design, Best Soundtrack and more, and – for the first time – this year RØDE has announced a Young Filmmaker award for entrants under the age of 18.
Once again, in conjunction with Miller, RØDE has brought together a respected judging panel including film-makers Philip Bloom, Ryan Connolly, Vincent LaForet and Rodney Charters.
Putting its “money where its mouth is”, RØDE has put together its own short film plus a complete series of behind-the-scenes tutorials to highlight the production process. Hosted by filmmaker Clinton Harn and the RØDE production team, the course guides viewers through the filmmaking process from pre-production through to shooting and on to post-production.
