Music Video Roundup – SXSW

The SXSW fest offers a launching pad for up and coming artists to get their presence known. The same goes for the accompanying film, music video, and interactive work.

The MVPA Awards are due at the end of the month, so if you’ve made any videos over the last year – you might want to consider submitting. The categories run the gamut from ‘Best Of’ genres, to specific disciplines. Keep in mind, submitting will cost $65 per video, as well as an additional $75 to join the MVPA as a director. This, their website states, will give you access to all related galas and parties that they hold.

With Music Videos changing in both budget and scope, it will be interesting to see what sort of competition will be lurking in the “Best Video Produced for Under $25,000” category.

Shoot It. Share It. Panasonic’s AF100 Competition

The AF100 competition from Panasonic, dubbed Shoot it Share It

The AF100 competition from Panasonic, dubbed Shoot it Share It

This is a good opportunity for anybody who’s shot something on the AF100 within the last year – the Shoot It Share It competition is in full swing with prizes ranging from matte boxes to monitors up for grabs. I grew up idolizing cameras like the DVX100, which was essentially the de facto camera for shooting 24 frames per second on mini-DV tape. The AF100 is just a tool, but it’s a camera that comes from a long lineage of ‘game changing’ cameras that really set the pace of what we have come to expect from the pro-sumer market.  So, if you’ve shot any completed projects with the AF100 in the last year, you should submit now. The catch – the deadline is March 7th, so submit now.
