When posting a publicity news release with video, a simple video-only release, or adding a video to a MySHOOT reel, SHOOT recommends uploading 740p .mp4 files and not to use the video sharing link method. This is not hard to do and eliminates the risk of having a shared YouTube or Vimeo video, used in a release, going black […]

Work I want to enter won’t be totally finished before the March 31st deadline. Can I enter before the deadline but not upload my video until after the deadline? I’d really love to participate this year.

Yes, any works that are co-directed can be entered in the SHOOT New Directors Search. Many duos and teams have been selected over the years. Just keep in mind that all co-directors must be directing professionally less than 3 years. If one qualifies and the other doesn’t, they cannot enter.
I’ve been a Producer and Story Producer on reality-based programming for years. However, the projects I’ve done in the past 2-3 years have been wearing both hats – Producing and Directing. Would my prior work Producing disqualify me?
No. As long as you weren’t directing prior to 3 years ago you’re considered a new director. Whether you’re a producer, actor, cinematographer, editor or TV network owner etc for 20 years doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is you weren’t a professional “Director” farther back than 3 years from annual search year. (i.e. prior to […]

This way SHOOT Editors would be able to see it inside our secure system if comes up for review before the your embargo date and you’re assured […]
