Video Contests are Great Ways to Have Fun, Earn Prizes and Get your Muse On! The video contest, "Driven Creativity", is sponsored by G-Technology and offers amateur and pro video producers a chance to win in such categories as Animation, Music, Photography, Short Film and GoPro Active.
For 90 years the National Association of Broadcasters has been putting on a convention for their industry. For the last 20 years, they’ve set up camp in Las Vegas. And over the last five years, they’ve repositioned the annual gathering as a content producers’ paradise. This year’s event did not disappoint.
It is amazing how much video is being produced right now. YouTube is a huge reason that people are so willing to upload content, and yes, there should be the distinction between uploading and shooting, in fact I will often shoot video and not upload to YouTube. If you're like me, then you're adding to the countless amounts of video that are being shot right now, but look at the 100 uploading hours of video, stop, and think of how many are productions (certainly not all of them), and many are music videos, in fact all but one of the 30 most viewed YouTube videos of all time are music videos, as of today (May 21, 2013).
When video enthusiasts and filmmakers are planning travel for the year, a few big events spring to mind. NAB in Vegas and IBC in Amsterdam are no-brainers. For the creative minded, Sundance, Cannes, and the Toronto Film Festival are obvious choices as well. What about SXSW? Most people seem to associate SXSW with music and technology, but for 20 years it’s also been a prominent film festival. In fact, film is the largest segment of the event.
