    Wednesday, 1st March, 2017, Sydney Australia – Leading pro-audio brand RØDE Microphones is excited to announce ‘My RØDE Reel’ is back for its fourth year and is bigger and better than every before! With close to 8,000 video submissions from 89 countries, ‘My RØDE Reel’ has not only become the world’s largest short film competition, but has also established itself as a staple amongst the global filmmaking community.

    RØDE Microphones launched ‘My RØDE Reel’ in 2014 to huge international engagement. The competition returns in 2017 with an increased total prize pool of more than $500,000 and, yes, more awards than ever before. A new prize initiative for the major category winners will be membership in the RØDE Directors Club: members will receive every new Broadcast and Filmmaking category microphones RØDE releases for the next three years, pre-release! It’s the prize that will keep giving.

    From amateur to professional – all filmmakers are encouraged to take part and tell their story. To enter ‘My RØDE Reel’, people are required to create a short film of three minutes or less, as well as a behind-the-scenes reel that features a RØDE product being used during the production of the film.

    The entry kit is FREE and available now at www.myrodereel.com.

    In 2017, as well, the group of five marquee awards featured in previous years have become six.

    • Judges’ Film award for the best short film
    • People’s Choice award for the most popular short film
    • Young Filmmaker award for the best short film by an entrant under the age of 18
    • Female Filmmaker award. This award is designed to encourage and celebrate women in the film community.
    • Each of these prizes is worth over USD $40,000.

    The BTS award for the best behind-the-scenes film is for the first time split into two categories:

    • Educational BTS Award, for the most informative behind-the-scenes, and
    • Entertaining BTS Award: for the most entertaining behind-the-scenes.
    New genre awards in 2017 include: Best Virtual Reality film (using 360-degree cameras), best 30-second TVC (Television Commercial, for RØDE, naturally) and Best Vlog. A full list of categories can be found at www.myrodereel.com.

    RØDE Microphones has brought together the most respected brands in filmmaking, to assemble an incredible prize pool valued at more than $500,000. This includes equipment from Adobe, Angelbird, Aphex, Atomos, Blackmagic Design, Blastwave FX, Cam Caddie, F&V, FilmConvert, FilmSupply, Freefly, iOgrapher, Joby, Kessler Crane, Lowepro, Michael Wiese Productions, Miller, Movcam, Musicbed, NiSi, Paralinx, Red Giant, Shane’s Inner Circle, SoundField, Teradek, ZEISS, and of course RØDE.

    “We’re extremely excited to launch the fourth year of My RØDE Reel in 2017,” commented Damien Wilson, RØDE’s CEO. “The quality of the films we receive gets better every year. The inclusion of the Female Filmmaker category last year doubled the number of women shooting and submitting films – a feat we hope to repeat this year.

    “The new categories – Best VR film, Best RØDE TVC and Best Vlog reflect the way creators are evolving the short film format. We are really excited about the possibilities these categories hold for us this year and into the future. And we couldn’t resist asking our talented customers for a cool RØDE TV commercial,” he continued.

    Entries for ‘My RØDE Reel’ are open from March 1st and close June 30th, 2017. RØDE has provided a FREE entry pack, which is available now by registering at www.myrodereel.com.

    I'd sure like to see that.
    I know as much about film making as I do about rocket building... (which is to say that you REALLY DON'T want to sit on top of anything I would build that's loaded with fuel...lol.)

    But yeah, I agree, Marco should do something!

    I already have ideas.. ;)
    Saddly, I don't own any Rode product (yet) and it's an important requirement.

    If Shure or AKG put up something similar I will certainly participate. I'm getting the hang on video work !

    Thanks for the good words !

    Here's an idea! Send me something like a DI guitar track for re-amping, and I'll use 5 Rode mics on the cabinet. I'll send the re-amped tracks back to you along with a video prominently showing the Rode logos. Job done!
