We don’t normally cover film competitions, but this new Sony European one is worthy of note mainly because the prizes are so good: the winner gets a FS7 II while the runner up gets an a7S II.
There are a few stages to the contest. First, contestants upload a one-minute documentary to YouTube which showcases their storytelling capabilities. Next, the top ten uploaded videos that receive the most likes during the period 1st to 12th March are shortlisted after which renowned filmmaker Philip Bloom chooses his winner and runner-up from the shortlist.
“I’m excited to see how the entrants will tell and develop a story in just 60 seconds, as well as using different techniques to make their pieces stand out from the rest,” comments Bloom in the press release below.
Register for the ‘Just One Minute' entry pack here (again, sadly we must emphasise that this a Europe only competition).
