here are the entries. due to the timing of the grand prize (a workshop spot that starts later this month) we need to post all of these up at once. with almost 20 films, there will be a lot to go through.
here is the plan for public voting; every three days, half of the entries with the fewest votes will be removed and the same poll will be re-posted with the remaining entries. on thursday evening we will go down to 10 films, on sunday evening we will go down to five films, and on tuesday of next week we will announce the winners. that means your votes from day one will carry forward all the way until the end, but it also means you need to make sure people are seeing your film right away to help it onto the next round. please feel free to post on twitter, facebook, blog your entries – all we ask is that you encourage your viewers to vote for their favorite as opposed to just voting for a friend to help you win. let’s continue to make this a constructive way to shoot, share, and learn more about our craft.
grand prize: one spot to the ‘deconstructing the story’ workshop in any city on the tour (orlando, cincinnati, new york, austin, seattle) // chosen by the SM crew
second place: a cinevate simplis solo rig // chosen by the cinevate crew
best cinematography: one $99/5yr music license from WE. // chosen by public vote

as with last time, we have planet5D on board to help spread the word. full critiques of the top films will be posted in our dedicated section on their forum (which you can find by clicking here). take a moment to check it out, share your behind the scenes imagery, we’d love to hear about your challenges and successes in making them, and get critiques from fellow filmmakers.
