RED Digital Cinema, in partnership with Outside TV, has opened audience voting for this year’s edition of REDirect, a short film competition. In its third year, REDirect Explore 2016 celebrates the exploration of the outside world. This past spring, eight hand-selected cinematographers from around the globe were challenged with creating a captivating outdoor adventure lifestyle story. The contestant videos are now complete, and votes for this year’s Fan Favorite can be cast until 12:00pm PT on August 8, by liking the video on RED’s 4K YouTube Channel, Shot on RED.
In addition to viewers having the opportunity to vote for their favorite film, RED and Outside TV have appointed a diverse judging panel, comprised of industry experts and previous REDirect participants, who will collectively select the Grand Prize victor.
Winners will be announced August 11.
REDirect Explore’s Grand Prize winner will take home the SCARLET-W camera and gear provided during REDirect, for a total package worth over $35,000. Second place will receive their SCARLET-W camera, valued at $9,950. The Fan Favorite will also walk away with a special prize.
