Q: What is the deadline?
A: May 5, 2010 is the new deadline
Q: I only see an intro and outro in the competition download pack. Where is the rest of the video? Do I just sound design over a black screen?
A: Actually, you are required to make your own video as well as design a soundtrack for this competition. As we’re giving away the AVID Media Composer as well as Pro Tools, we are requiring not just audio, but video, too.
Q: Can we collaborate with other people?
A: We strongly encourage you to collaborate with fellow filmmakers, editors, even actors or animators. The grand prize (turnkey post system) contains a great set of equipment that can help get any basic Audio/Video post studio up and running.
Q: Does the video have to be original?
A: You can use un-original material but you must credit the source and copyright owner either in the video itself or a credit list that you send to us.
We’ve teamed up with AVID/Digidesign for our next sound design competition. This time, the stakes are high! The grand prize includes the AVID Media Composer, SONOPEDIA, Pro Tools LE, Mbox 2 and much more.
Skip Lievsay (No Country for Old Men), Jacob Ribicoff (Nine) and Ric Viers (Blastwave FX) are our esteemed judges, and you’ve got until Cinco de Mayo (May 5, 2010) to get your entries in.
