Editing Competition to practice your cutting.

Hey folks,
Anyone with itchy cutting fingers at a loose end since the big 48hr weekend?

Here's a local editing competition to hone on (ca$h prizes too.)

(text via Mark Sedon
Festival Director
NZ Mountain Film Festival )

__Enter a Film editing Competition with a difference! The NZ Mountain Film Festival hired award winning cameraman Hugh Barnard to shoot some young Wanaka athletes skateboarding, biking, kayaking and rock climbing. Contestants are given about 30 minutes of footage to make their 3 minute film from and there’s a US$500 first prize! The top 9 or 10 will be played on the big screen at the Festival in Wanaka July 5-9 and the winner picked. It’s open to anyone, anywhere on the planet, who can do simple editing and enter now at http://mountainfilm.net.nz/competitions/film-editing/. Editing is on now until June 30th.

I did this last year.
It was pretty fun and my entry made the finals
but the winner was a hometown (Wanaka) boy
and he used copyright music (Vangelis's "Chariots of Fire") in it
so I'm kind of sour on it now
and I don't know if I'll enter again this year.

I entered last year and made the finals as well, but I'm just too busy to do it this year. I'm a little disappointed though, because it was quite fun getting sent pre-shot footage with no clear narrative and playing around with it.

2013 (Wellington) - Parasite - The Robot/Cyborg/Android Movie
2012 (Wellington) - Sunday in the Park with Mary - Musical/Dance

2011 (Christchurch) - Tip of the Iceberg - Body-Switch Movie
2010 (Christchurch) - Sidney Manson Saved my Life - Biopic - Disqualified (Wrong DVD Format)

I can see how this would sour it for you.
That is pretty frustrating.
I believe the organisers are relying on competitors to act appropriately and perhaps don't police it , but take it on good faith.
I would have thought Chariots of Fire was rather recognisable though.

Still,
It's a fun and easy comp and the odds of winning are a damn site better than 48hrs.

You decide.

Sooooo how'd y'all go?
I just rendered out my final.

I did a music video for a friend's track
and the whole thing clocks in at about 2:20.

I would guess I spent something like 20 hours on it.

I had a hectic month and kinda ran out of time. Spent Sunday night making a totally half-assed video. Didn't get into the finals. I might try again next year.
