Join Tongal, AbelCine, and ARRI to celebrate ARRI’s 100th anniversary with a once-in-a-lifetime challenge to create original 2–3 minute films that shows how ARRI gear inspires your imagination.
For 100 years, ARRI has been empowering and inspiring filmmakers for generations, so we’re seeking films that exemplify all the ways that ARRI gear inspires you and your unique creative vision. We’re asking filmmakers to submit projects that look to answer the question: what is it about ARRI cameras, lenses, or lighting that evokes emotion and inspires your imagination?
Inspiring your vision.
Located in Munich, Germany, Arnold and Richter Cine Technik (ARRI) was founded in 1917 and is the largest manufacturer of professional motion picture equipment in the world.
Throughout its 100-year history, ARRI has been associated with breakthrough innovation and revolutionary technologies in all of its core businesses. The company is involved in practically every aspect of the motion picture production: from engineering, and manufacturing, to equipment and studio lighting solutions, to postproduction and visual effects.
ARRI’s digital camera lineup includes the ALEXA 65, ALEXA SXT, ALEXA Mini and AMIRA cameras, which combine unsurpassed image quality with intuitive workflows for the best overall production value. ARRI SkyPanel and L-Series lighting fixtures incorporate the latest advances in LED illumination, while ARRI cine lenses such as the Master Anamorphic series and Ultra Wide Zoom redefine optical excellence. Pro Camera Accessories and the Electronic Control System simplify tasks on set and in post, and ARRISCAN archive technologies are helping to preserve the world’s cinematic heritage.
Now ARRI, AbelCine, and Tongal are looking to you to Pitch a 2-3 minute video about how ARRI cameras, lenses and/or lighting inspires your imagination. Read on to the Objectives for more info, project timeline, and most importantly, prizing.
The goal of this project is to create a 2–3 minute Video that illustrates how ARRI inspires your creative and cinematic vision. Your videos can be anything. ARRI is open to really creative projects – doesn’t have to be straight narrative, or straight doc; could even be an art piece. All we require is that you adhere to the time constraints and the executional mandatories set out in the brief, but what’s most important is that your video effectively get the point across about how ARRI or ARRI gear inspires you as a creator.
Three filmmakers will win Pitch prizing to put towards the creation of their Videos, and be guaranteed a spot in the final Video Phase and eligible for Video Prizing upon turning in completed work that fits the criteria laid out in this brief. Five additional filmmakers will be awarded Video Prizes as Wildcard submissions. But that’s not all – one filmmaker will receive a Grand Prize package, including an ARRI ALEXA Mini camera package.
