To celebrate the launch of Canonâ€™s new Legria High Definition range, Canon & Connector teamed up to run a competition for Irish digital filmmakers. The competition judges included Hollywood actor Liam Cunningham, star of ‘Hunger’ and ‘The Wind that Shakes The Barley’.
WINNERS ANNOUNCED 26th June 2009 – More details >>
Weâ€™re looking for three minute long short movies based on freecording. Freecording, put simply, is capturing your world in your own unique fashion and from your own perspective.
Prizes include a Canon XH A1 and runners up will receive â‚¬500 & â‚¬250 respectively. Plus, the short-listed top 10 entries will be showcased at a very special Connector event in June attended by Liam Cunningham.
Entrants can submit their admission by uploading their video to YouTube.com and register on Connector.ie. This contest runs untilÂ midnight 5th June 2009.
When a video has been pre-planned, everything can seem a little bit stilted and staged. No one acts naturally and if you’re the one doing the filming, you’ve probably spent so long trying to capture the right shots, you’ve missed out on all the fun yourself. Not with freecording. Spontaneity is at the heart of this style of video making. You could be out and about doing anything and the moment takes you. You live it, you shoot it.
