CityROCK have been screening the Reel Rock Tour in SA for the past 7 years and it’s coming again at the end of September and early October – Click here for a list of the screenings
Initially it was only shown in Cape Town but due to constant calls for it to be shown elsewhere climbers in Jo’burg, Pretoria, Durban and Pietermaritzburg now also get to experience the tour.
And so a few of us thought about creating a “local is lekker” film competition with the 3 finalists will be shown before the main Reel Rock Tour attraction.
The premise: The idea is to make the “local is lekker” comp a regular, annual event which will be combined with the RRT.
So all you aspiring SA film makers – submit your local is lekker video!!
1st Prize: R2500
2nd Prize: R1500
3rd Prize: R500
- 2-5 minutes preferred with a maximum playtime of 10 minutes
- Video must be uploaded and viewable online somewhere (Vimeo/YouTube). If you are one of the 3 finalists you must submit a copy via memory stick
- local climbers, local film maker or producer having travelled somewhere and filmed local SA climbers
- Not a professional piece of work. That means it wasn’t made for money by the film maker(s)
- There just has to be a very strong local flavour to the whole thing
The top 3 finalist films will be shown at the RRT, then intermission, followed by the main RRT film.
- Sunday September 23rd at midnight – we know it’s short notice, sorry. But better late than never (remember the prize money that is up for grabs!)
Next year, you got more time, a whole year in fact.
Soundtrack / music:
Some people have asked about the issue of legal music. this is a tricky subject e.g. Amy Daneel has done a film of Matt soloing in Montagu with a Moby sound track. Her video is on Vimeo, and the organisers are OK with keeping that sound track. If/when we grow to become a huge thing one day then at some point, then we must make sure that the music is legal.
Right now we are all amateurs.
