Each of the Finalists were selected on the merits of their qualifying round submissions, where they were asked to submit a 90-second reel showcasing their skills with any available equipment, locations, and resources. We reviewed over 100 submissions, and selecting the best of the best was no small task. Once all the entries were thoroughly reviewed and judged and our Finalists were selected, we shipped them Sony Action Cam kits and gave them almost a month to produce and shoot an edit- subject matter and content of their choosing.
Finalists are being judged and awarded points in 7 categories: technical ability, composition, creativity, motion, use of lighting, overall impression, and crowd vote. Want to chose your favorites and make your vote count? Check out the contest page https://apps.facebook.com/my-polls/filmerunknownfinals (Vote open from March 11 until March 16, 2014) and give your favorite a thumbs up.
How are we selecting the winner? In our efforts to make things as fair and transparent as possible, our office staff and production crew will be scoring each category on a scale of 1-10. We’ll also be awarding 10 points for the fan favorite, 9 for the second place-voted edit, 8 points for the third, etc, and factoring these points in with the rest. We’ll then add up all the numbers to determine our winner!
The FilmerUnknown winner will receive:
• An all-expense paid trip* to attend Superunknown XI where they’ll work and shoot along with the Level 1 crew.
• $1000 in Sony product.
