Guidelines for the intro micro-shorts portion (eligible for the audience vote prize) require that the submitted short film be 5 minutes or less in length and utilize at least one aspect of Blackmagic's DaVinci Resolve FREE software. Whether it be picture edit, audio edit, VFX or final deliverables. We will provide links to official Blackmagic Resolve tutorials to help aid first time Resolve users.
We encourage anyone, new to the program or pro users to submit to this FREE, ultra accessible category of our event.
PLEASE NOTE: If selected you will be required to show proof that you have used at least two facets of Blackmagic's DaVinci Resolve Software in the making of your Introductory Micro-Short.
