Grass Valley, the leading global manufacturer of broadcast and production equipment including the nonlinear editing program EDIUS, is hosting a contest for editors to show off their chops and compete at a chance for thousands of dollars of production gear!

Contestants need to cut together a 60-second or less commercial spot promoting EDIUS. Find out more information about EDIUS, here.

Your commercial can be anything you like, we only ask one thing – be funny. Humorous entrants will receive special recognition and be weighted more heavily for winning consideration. Other than that – go nuts! Tout the software’s features, or create a dramatic re-enactment of an eleventh-hour edit. Do everything with psychedelic animation, or enlist your funemployed acting buddies to stage a live demo. The style and message is entirely up to you – the only requirement is that the cut is a promotion for EDIUS software and uses humor. A little laughter will go a long way when we’re picking our winner.

Grand Prize: A full-production and post production kit including:

* HP ProBook Laptop Loaded with EDIUS Nonlinear Editing Software

* Panasonic HDC-HS250K Videocamera

* LaCie d2 Quadra External Drive (1 TB)

To begin, fill out the registration form below. You’ll receive an email with further information regarding the contest and instructions on how to submit your commercial.

It’s that simple. Good luck! Click here for more info and to enter
