Filmmakers, we’d like to remind you about a filmmaking competition, one that looks really unique.
Offering £2000 in prizes and free to enter, the Space Sounds Effects competition asks filmmakers to submit films featuring sounds recorded in space by satellites.
Organised by Queen Mary University’s School of Physics & Astronomy, filmmakers can download a collection of space recordings to utilise in their submitted films. Usually inaudible to human ears, the recorded sounds have been compressed and amplified, resulting in some strange, interesting, and entirely unique aural material to work with.
Entries should be 15 minutes or under. Films will be assessed both on the strength of the work itself, and on the creative use of the supplied recordings. Winners will be selected in four categories crossing emerging and more established filmmakers, UK and international, and will screen at Rich Mix once the winners are announced.
Films should be submitted by July 3rd. Full details and submissions here.
