TECNO launches Movie Masters Program short film competition
TECNO Mobile is celebrating the launch of its latest smartphone, the CAMON 18 Premier by inviting amateur Filipino filmmakers to join their 2021 Movie Masters Program Short Film Competition.
The competition aims to showcase footage of everyday life through the CAMON 18 Premier. Entries for the competition will be accepted from November 12 to 27, 2021. To enter, interested participants must submit a 1-minute video where they explain why they should be considered for the program. Part of the video should include the participant speaking directly to the camera, while the rest of the 1-minute video running time may be used creatively, and can include samples of past works, and other similar footage.
Participants must guarantee that all submitted works are original, and do not contain any copyrighted audio, offensive language, pornography, or obscenity. The deadline for entries is on November 27, 2021, at 11:00 PM.
After the Qualifier Round, three semi finalists from the Movie Masters Program will be selected by TECNO Mobile, from among all the submitted videos. Each semifinalist will receive a cash prize of Php 25,000, along with a CAMON 18 Premier smartphone.
The semi-finalists will need to create short videos, with the theme “Capturing Moving Moments in the Philippines.” All semifinal videos must be shot using the CAMON 18 Premier, giving participants the chance to see the smartphone in action, and experience its Super Steady Shot feature. Submitted videos must focus on one of three subjects – The participant’s hometown or city, to show what life is like there; an upcoming holiday, such as a vacation, get-together or celebration that they are looking forward to; or daily life scenes featuring real people around them.
The Grand Winner will receive a PHP 300,000 film grant, together with the opportunity to create a short film about capturing moving moments in the Philippines, with the help of the top local director, Paul Soriano, and his team at TEN17P. The completed short film will be released globally this December and will feature 2021 in retrospect, conveying the message that, while life may shake us, we are all capable of overcoming challenges in order to live a steady life, with a beautiful and stable future to look forward to.
A runner-up will also be chosen and will be given the title of TECNO Mobile’s 2022 Tourism Ambassador. The runner-up will receive a Holiday Travel Fund amounting to PHP 40,000.
