For the third time, Sony have launched their PROduction Awards competition, for the first time taking entries from around the world.
The competition is aimed at students, professionals and amateurs alike, and films of any genre or topic can be entered, as long as they fit in one of the three categories: “Creative”, “Factual” and the dedicated “Student” category.
Films can be entered until March 10, after which public voting opens.

In the following I will describe how the Scarlet performed under these conditions, what worked, what didn’t work. I’ll call this a field report:...
Fellow Austrian HDSLR shooters Nino Leitner, Alexander Boboschewski and their friend Mario Feil got the chance to test the yet unreleased Canon EOS C300 camera. They teamed up to get dirty with it and created an entire short film in two days time (see result...
This music video was submitted by director Ian Bucknole last week and caught my attention not only because of it’s high rating.
Videos that combine a great story, good looks, style, enriching artwork and good acting are not often shot on a 5D and 550D like in this case. In fact this one was done with a budget of under $1k.
