To celebrate the release of my “Filmmaking for Photographers“, MZED is hosting a month-long giveaway (but it ends on the 14th of March!!) ! In addition to the filmmaking gear prizes listed below, they are also giving away free access to one of the lessons in the course, a one-hour primer on camera movement. All the info on how to enter (and gain bonus entries) is below.
But first, here’s a short testimonial from a filmmaker who recently watched my course:
Phillip’s superb teaching style, sense of humor, and of course the cats make this an extremely informative and thoroughly enjoyable course. It’s had a HUGE impact on how I look at shooting, sound, lighting, and editing. THANK YOU for making this course!
Filmmaking for Photographers is a course that I have wanted to make for a long time, after watching many photographers attempt to move into the video world.
The course is relevant for both photographers and filmmakers who want to learn about camera movement and sequences, lighting styles and challenges, story and narrative, and much more. It’s over seven hours of education that eloquently weave hundreds of lessons that I have learned along his filmmaking journey.
This premium course is available for purchase for $199, or discounted to just $100 for MZed Pro members. But for this giveaway, we’re giving away the Movement lesson completely free to everyone – all you need to do is create a free MZed account and you can watch this one hour lesson immediately. Or if you have an iOS device you can watch it without creating an account in the MZed app!
MZed Giveaway Prizes
As you’re watching the Movement lesson, make sure to pay close attention, because you could win some of our amazing filmmaking gear prizes too.
All you have to do is answer a question about something from the Movement module, fill out the Gleam competition, and you’ll be entered to win the following gifts:
RØDE VideoMic NTG (5 available)
This microphone packs so many features in it that it may be the last mic you’ll ever need. From mounting it on top of your mirrorless or cinema camera to using it as a USB mic, the VideoMic NTG makes you wonder how you ever lived without it.
There’s a terrific variable gain control dial on the back, an auto sensor that knows if it’s connected to a camera or a mobile device, a headphone out, and my favourite, a safety channel that automatically sends a -20db signal to the right channel.
We’re excited to be able to give away five of these VideoMic NTG shotgun mics, thanks to RØDE Microphones. Your audio game will be on a completely different playing field.
Atomos Ninja V
Possibly the most versatile and popular external monitor/recorder out there today, the Atomos Ninja V will take your camera rig to the next level.
You’ll not only be able to monitor your scene using innovative exposure assist tools, but you’ll also be tapping into your camera’s higher quality record settings that are only available with external recording.
And at 5-inches, this monitor will most likely never leave your camera’s side (or top). Thank you to Atomos for the gift and for supporting filmmaking education!
B&H Photo $100 Gift Card (5 Available)
You probably have a hundred items on your wish list right now, so the B&H Photo Video $100 gift card would come in real handy.
We don’t have to tell you about B&H Photo Video – the global headquarters for all the toys we photographers and filmmakers love to play with – sometimes even for work. Thank you to B&H for the generous gift!
Glyph Technologies 2TB Atom RAID SSD and Promo Discounts
The Glyph Atom RAID SSD drive is both compact and rugged enough for the most adventurous creative. The aluminium chassis and removable rubber bumper will ensure your data is safe while you’re on the go.
And with the USB-C connection, this drive is also the fastest SSD Glyph has made. It’s got transfer speeds up to 950 MB/s, and it’s completely quiet without a need for a fan. This 2TB SSD will quickly find a home in your workflow.
In addition to the giveaway prize, Glyph Technologies is throwing in a special offer for all participants during the giveaway. You can get 15% off any Glyph product at B&H Photo Video or Filmtools, just by using the promo code GLYPH15.
Glyph external drives play a prominent role in Philip Bloom’s Filmmaking for Photographers course, as Philip and the MZed team relied exclusively on Glyph storage gear throughout the course production and post-production. Thank you Glyph for your support!
