With the end of the season rapidly coming to a close its time to finalise all your entries to TobyFEST, SAKSA’s inaugural Short Film Festival!
Pro AV Solutions/Sony have kindly donated 2 Sony HD Action Cams as major prizes for SAKSA’s newest completion TobyFEST! That means there is no better time to get your cameras out and finalise your editing with the aim at taking home one of these amazing prizes. Even if you haven’t captured any footage this season there is still time over the coming weeks, particularly with the Robe Easter Classic just around the corner.
So what else do I need to know -
Make an short film between 30 seconds to 5 minutes in duration. Add some cool beats with the main focus of the movie being kite surfing. It’s not about the standard of riding but to demonstrate the stoke that we all get from this awesome sport! It must be tasteful and not portray kite surfing in a bad light (no illegal activity will be accepted).
Ensure a SAKSA logo is clearly visible at some point during the film and other sponsors or shops logos are also welcomed.
Riders are limited to 3 entries per person and must currently be financial SAKSA members.
The overall winner of the comp will be judged by our very own Local Film Maker, Jonathon Baker. He will be judging the quality of the editing in the film, the originality and the overall look and feel of the short film.
A People’s Choice Award is also up for grabs which will be judged by your fellow kiters at the SAKSA TobyFEST/End of Season Party, where all the entries will be played on the night.
Entries: Entries close on Saturday the 6th of April 2013 and can be supplied by 1 or 2 methods, either -
1) Upload to us! There is an easy website called ‘WeTransfer’ which is great for files up to 2G, all you do is select your file from your computer, provide your email address and then ours! email@example.com and begin your upload.
2) Get in touch with us on the SAKSA Facebook page and we’ll arrange to get the video from you before the night of Tobyfest.
TobyFEST Movie Night and End of Season Party: The TobyFEST movie night and SAKSA End of Season party will be held on Friday the 19th of April 2013, kicking off at 7pm. With a venue still TBA.
Remember this is all about showing the stoke we all get from kite surfing and riding with our mates. So get behind those cams, get creative, get your film on and make sure you get along to see all the entries on the night. We look forward to kicking back and watching what you have all put together and seeing just how many budding film makers are out there amongst our great kiting community!
