ENCOUNTERS LAUNCHES NEW MUSIC VIDEO AWARD WITH SOHO SHORTS

Created in partnership with the team behind Soho Shorts, previously organisers of the Rushes Soho Shorts Festival, this new category will put the spotlight on high quality creative music videos. A co-presented programme will premiere in Bristol at Encounters in September 2013 and then will be showcased at the London Short Film Festival in early 2014, with selected filmmakers and animators invited to attend both. The events will encourage creative talent who are working within the music video sector to engage with the Encounters festival and increase the diversity of its programme.

Renowned as one of the worlds best-known showcases and hot spots for emerging talent, Encounters has always looked ahead to remain a competitive platform in the film and animation industries. In 2010 the festival introduced the Short Documentary Award and in 2011 it brought in European New Talent Awards for first-time and student directors.

The Call for Entries is open until 3 June 2013. Music videos that have already been submitted will automatically be eligible for the Best Music Video Award. The winner of the award will receive a prize of £500 thanks to the support of Rushes, which was the founder of the Soho Shorts festival. Submissions are accepted via Reelport.com: for full information visit www.encounters-festival.org.uk/submit-films.

Encounters Managing Director Liz Harkman said: This new award recognises the huge amount of work and talent that goes into the production of music videos and allows us to champion it as its own discipline.

We are really excited about the partnership with Soho Shorts to recognise talent working in the music video sector and ensure the continued representation of this creative field.

Rushes Managing Director Joce Capper Said: "Rushes are delighted to be partnering with Encounters to launch this new Music Video award. We have always supported this genre and those working in Music Videos. We love them! We recognise the creative talent and original ideas on screens today, and the continuing opportunities for new talent music videos provide. We are happy to be involved through this award.

New Streaming High Speed Cameras Posted: 26/09/2022
Phoenix

During the pandemic, most of us had two choices. Identifying parts of our business that we can accelerate, or nothing! At IDT, we chose the former, so we have just launched a new product range, and have three (yes, three) more coming shortly.
High speed cameras have traditionally been at the specialist end of the camera spectrum, with short sequences being recorded to RAM, and an interruption in workflow required before the next captured sequence. Minor improvements to this basic workflow have been implemented, like segmenting the RAM (which shorten each sequence, and still require a download later on), or having on board SSD, for faster downloads.
