Entering your short film in the My RØDE Reel competition is kind of a no-brainer. As we've posted before, the contest offers categories for just about any style and genre of filmmaking—from horror flick to music video—with a million dollars in prizes up for grabs. The only question left is when to enter. Well, RØDE has added an extra incentive to submit a short film this month.
While the final deadline isn't until the end of July, if you submit by May 31 in the VR, Vlog, Cameraphone or Pitch categories, you'll automatically get a VideoMicro to use in future productions. RØDE's compact, on-camera microphone will come in handy when shooting your inevitable second contest entry! (Note that some restrictions apply.)
