There's no better way to bookend Sound Week than to announce the winners of the 60 Second Sound Week Film ChallengeWe received some exceptional entries from all across the world, and it just goes to show how creative the No Film School community really can be. Sound is an essential part of any story, and the submitted shorts showed that exceptionally well. It was difficult to pick an overall winner, let alone a top four. 

The overall winner will receive a prize package from RØDE that includes an NTG4, VideoMic NTG, a Wireless Go set with a lav, and a boom pole. Three other videos will be awarded a Wireless Go set with a lav. If you are one of the winners, please email us at to claim your prize.

Without further ado, let's take a look at what the NFS community created.
