RØDE has brought together a respected judging panel for ‘My RØDE Reel’ that includes such inspirational filmmakers as Philip Bloom, FIlmRiot host Ryan Connolly and Devin Graham, best known from his high-adrenalin YouTube channel Devin SuperTramp.

“Film competitions are fantastic ways to encourage people to push their creativity in ways they don't normally” commented Philip Bloom. “The My RØDE Reel competition will not only do that with its high profile, but help the filmmakers with terrific exposure! I can't wait to see what people come up with!”

“If getting your work seen by industry pros like Philip Bloom and having the chance to win some of these amazing prizes doesn’t get you off the couch, I don’t know what will!” added Ryan Connolly.

Devin Graham was equally excited to be involved: “This contest gives filmmakers an amazing opportunity to grow, learn from each other, and win some amazing prizes that will take them to the next level.”

    I would be in heaven if I won this. I should probably buy a Rode microphone sometime soon and maybe get on making that 5 minute video. No idea what I’m going to make, but it’s worth a shot for sure. I could seriously make my first full lengthy film if I win this set of brilliant products.
