Full Sail’s Film department has teamed up with the ESPN Sports Lab to launch the Cam-Bot Action Shot Competition. The challenge: Create a camera rig that captures and records action shots, then show off your best two minutes of footage to the judges from ESPN’s Emerging Technology team during the Cam-Bot Competition finale on Saturday, December 8.
“We are really excited about this opportunity to test the limits of how we shoot sports and action shots,” says Nikki Willson, the Film department’s Program Coordinator. “This is a wonderful contest to put our students’ creativity and outside-of-the-box thinking to the test. We look forward to seeing what our students come up with!”
The judges will be looking for footage that showcases creativity, innovation, functionality, user-friendliness, and robustness. The presentation must include a two-minute Quicktime movie that showcases how the camera rig captures the action shot and an example of that shot. Individual students or student groups (four members maximum) from all degree programs are invited to take part in the competition.
Registration is open until next Monday, October 29. (You don’t have to have your footage by then, you just must register to take part in the competition.) To sign up, fill out the registration form on the Connect event page.
