George Lucas famously once said that sound is 50% of a movie. We reckon this is an understatement.
We all know that without great audio, any film will fall flat, no matter how good the video is. Dialogue, ambience, sound effects, music – recording sound is something that every filmmaker needs to master.
How finely tuned are your ears though? The ‘Golden Ears’ Challenge is an interactive listening comp designed to test your audio knowledge in real world filmmaking scenarios. Take the quiz and find out how you shape up for the chance to win 1 of 10 VideoMic prize packs.
How Does It Work?
We recorded a bunch of real world scenarios that filmmakers will no doubt be familiar with. Each one was filmed twice using different techniques or processes, and all you have to do is pick which video correctly answers the corresponding question. There are four sets of questions, starting easy then gradually getting harder (kudos to those who nail the 'Golden Ears' set!). The more points you score the better chance you have to win.
There is also a creative question at the end that you need to answer to submit your entry. To choose the prize recipients, we will shortlist the entrants with the highest scores and pick the 10 best answers to the final question.
You can enter as many times as you like, but only your best entry will count towards the competition. Check out the full terms and conditions here.
What Are The Prizes?
There are 10 VideoMic prize packs worth over $1000 up for grabs, loaded with all you need to record great audio for video. Each pack includes:
The competition ends on the 10th of December, so get listening!
