The Adelaide Advertising and Design Club are pushing entrants to only use smartphones to shoot
Adelaide’s budding filmmakers will be glued to their smartphones even more this month, in a bid to become Adelaide first ‘Best Film’ creator as part of a new competition by the Adelaide Advertising and Design Club (AADC).
Sponsored by internationally renowned digital studio KOJO, the competition calls on entrants to create short films using only their smartphones and desktop software for editing, to capture and express the theme, ‘Crew’.
Entries are open now until the end of September, giving entrants three weeks to pull together a creative film for a chance to win an iPad 2 and be part of a screening at Mercury Cinema.
AADC Co-President Jim Robinson said the new competition reflects the ever-evolving technological landscape, with smartphones unveiling a whole new army of creatives.
“Smartphones have staked their claim in our every day lives and with the functionality and quality continuously improving, we’re really excited to see what entrants come up with,” Jim said.
All approved entries with be celebrated and screened at a special event at Mercury Cinemas on 2 October, where the winning entry will be announced.
Six awards will be up for grabs including Best Script, Best Actor, Best Sound, Best Student Entry, Best Captured Theme and the top gong, Best Film.
Entries will be judged primarily on the idea behind the film, followed by the quality of the production. Judges will be looking for originality, creativity, entertainment and how the theme has been illustrated.
The competition is open to all AADC members and entry is free. Films must be submitted by 5.00pm on Friday, 28 September.
