What do I have to do to win?

Please check out Tom’s video and then read below.

Submit a “Making-Of” or “Behind-The-Scenes” type of a video that is based on any of your projects where you used equipment from CAME-TV. Your project can be of any type: film, music video, wedding video, even a family vacation video; but you must have used some CAME-TV gear to make it.

It doesn’t matter how much CAME-TV gear you used, but we want to know what you used and why you used it.

Therefore, your submission will consist of a Making-Of video. You need to tell us about your project, show the final video or film and, of course, talk about the CAME-TV equipment you used. You can utilize your behind-the-scenes footage or something that you recorded after you filmed your project (or will film now).

If your creative video is long (ex. film, wedding video), you might want to show only a few clips. You can, of course, include a link to the entire video so that those interested can check it out. But, for the purposes of this contest, you will be judged on the Making-Of video alone.

Please do not submit a video that only shows your final project (ex. your film, music, wedding or family video). Your contest video must be a Making-Of video that talks about your project and the CAME-TV equipment you used.

The contest starts on Tuesday March 10, 2015, so your Making-Of video cannot have been uploaded before then (but your original project can have already been released online). The Making-Of video needs to be uploaded to YouTube and include in its title the phrase “Tom Antos & CAME-TV Contest”.

Once your video is up on YouTube, come back to this page and use the form below to enter the video in the contest. If you meet the eligibility criteria, you will receive an email confirming that your video has been accepted (in case the email goes to your spambox, keep an eye for an email from came-tv**** at tomantosfilms dot com).

The video submission deadline is Friday May 1st, 2015.

In the first phase of the selection process, we will select 20 finalists from the 100 most popular videos. Therefore, it is crucial that you promote your video online (through social media, etc.) as soon as you have it ready.

On Monday May 4, 2015, we will post the videos of the 20 finalists on our website.

Then, our judges (a panel of industry professionals), will select 5 winners. The winners will be announced on Friday May 15, 2015.

To summarize:

  • Contest Start: March 10, 2015
  • Upload your Making-Of video to YouTube (with “Tom Antos & CAME-TV Contest” in the title) and promote it
