Filmsupply Challenge Winning Entries Are Worth A Look

by planetMitchLeave a Comment

We announced the Filmsupply Challenge several months ago and the winners have been selected and displayed… and you probably want to see these! 

Remember, these films were all made with STOCK video and audio! And they turned out amazingly well.

Count me as very impressed with the mad skills of these individuals to put together these shorts without having to shoot a thing! Quite cool.

Not to mention the $100,000 in prizes. Very cool as well.

Congratulations to Filmsupply and Musicbed for creating a very interesting challenge that was different than your typical film challenge.

I recommend you take a few minutes and watch and be inspired. They're only a minute long, but again i'm suitably impressed.

Be impressed by these Filmsupply Challenge winners! They're only 1 minute long but very cool. Click To Tweet

The Filmsupply Challenge Winners Have Been Selected!

Via Filmsupply:

We spend a lot of time looking through our catalog. A lot. In fact, most of our team has the footage nearly memorized. This makes it so much more amazing that the films you created for the Filmsupply Challenge made us completely forget we were seeing our content. You made it your own, and for that, we applaud you.

For those of you who are just now joining us, we asked people to create a 60-second (or less) edit, using our footage and Musicbed’s music. The challenge was meant to be just that, a challenge — create something in a short amount of time that would blow our judges’ socks off. More than 2,500 brave souls took on this challenge, and we watched each and every one of them. Some were awesome. Some were insane. Some were both. We loved every second of it.

That wasn’t the hard part. That was the fun part.

We left the hard part for our incredible judges’ panel. Our 10 judges had the nearly impossible task of selecting winners in 7 different categories. They looked for originality, complete ideas, technique and most of all, the feeling that they were watching something completely new. Needless to say, there were plenty to decide upon, but they’ve made their decisions.

Because we definitely don’t have the space to include comments from all 10 judges, we’ll sum things up ourselves. Without further ado, here are the Filmsupply Challenge winners that our 10 judges selected:

Filmsupply Challenge Winners 1

BEST AD SPEC | ‘LANDING IT RIGHT’ BY JOSH ALLRED

We have a soft spot for skateboards. There, we said it. And this one is great. It’s the essence of a commercial that’s heavy on vibe, short and sweet. It doesn’t say much, because it doesn’t need to — and that captured our attention. Each clip seems very intentionally placed, the sound design is spot-on and the slick graphic work at the end is the icing on the cake. It’s a great ad and we’re pumped the judges picked it. It’s almost rad enough to get us on a skateboard, except for we’d severely injure ourselves.

BEST TITLE SEQUENCE | ‘MERCY’ BY TYRONE DEISE

The judges had a lot of awesome title sequences to sort through, but this one had it all — a perfectly matched soundtrack and coloring that really set the tone for this show we wish existed. The VFX overlays are a perfect way to mix the cityscape with the human element of a hospital drama. And who can’t get enough of hospital dramas? We’re already having flashbacks of George Clooney in his scrub-wearing days.
