As you may know, we've partnered with Blackmagic Design on a short film contest, and you could win Pocket Cinema 6K Pro and access to DaVinci Resolve 17!

And, first up, we want to CLARIFY any questions over the contest deadline. 

The deadline for submissions is OFFICIALY AND FINALLY July 29, 11:59 p.m. PT. Anything published after July 29 will not be considered. 

We sincerely apologize for the confusion! 

Remember: Create a 3-minute or less short which tells a story through dramatic lighting techniques. Upload to Youtube and hashtag it #storythroughlightingcontest

It can be natural light or complex setups, but we want to see your cinematic lighting chops on display. How does lighting create drama and convey meaning?

You DO NOT need to use a Blackmagic camera to shoot this.

Remember to keep it clean and PG-13.
