Stay at home, make a video

Entries from Week Two of DEGNZ Play have come in and are now up on our YouTube channel for you to enjoy! Check our what our members have made this week.

Can you come up with a video up to 60-seconds long on the theme for Week Three, NEW PERSPECTIVES? Use it as a springboard for your ideas and creativity. Maybe give a new technique a go. It’s up to you what you want to do. Just have fun and a good Easter!

To submit a video

Please send it via WeTransfer to admin@degnz.co.nz with your name, the week’s theme, your video’s title and your city/town in the message. The deadline for Week 3 is Friday 17 April, 5PM.

Participation is limited to DEGNZ members, but you can join as per normal or take advantage of our Membership Holiday scheme to become a member if you are suffering financial hardship.

Some suggestions for approach:

  1. This is not a competition—it’s an opportunity for self-expression—everyone’s a winner.
  2. We are not encouraging mini-Hollywood studio productions. Simple is better, but if you really feel the need…
  3. Please refrain from being explicit in content or language. We’d like members to be able to share it with their families. We do reserve the right not to upload content to the DEGNZ channel if we feel it’s inappropriate.
  4. Keep the file size small – less than 100MBs if you can.
  5. No longer than 60-seconds.

Let your creative juices flow

Thank you to our director and editor members who submitted a video for the first week of DEGNZ Play! Each one of them made us smile in under 60 seconds, which is gold in a time like now.

We hope that these will encourage more people to make your own videos in Week Two! The theme for Week Two is MOVEMENT. Due to Easter coming up, the deadline to submit your videos is Saturday 11 April, 12 noon.

Stay at home, make a video

From Monday 30 March, the Directors & Editors Guild of NZ will introduce DEGNZ Play for our members. DEGNZ Play is an initiative to help provide an outlet for your creative juices and get something of yours into production now and out into the world!

We would like you to make a 60-second video that we will upload onto our DEGNZ YouTube Channel.

Each Friday while self-isolation lasts, we will put forward a theme for the week that you can create to. The theme for the week of March 30 is BUBBLE. 

Participation is limited to DEGNZ members, but you can join as per normal or take advantage of our Membership Holiday scheme to become a member if you are suffering financial hardship.

Some suggestions for approach:

  1. This is not a competition—it’s an opportunity for self-expression—everyone’s a winner.
  2. We are not encouraging mini-Hollywood studio productions. Simple is better, but if you really feel the need…
  3. Please refrain from being explict in content or language. We’d like members to be able to share it with their families. We do reserve the right not to upload content to the DEGNZ channel if we feel it’s inappropriate.

To submit a video

Please send it via WeTransfer to admin@degnz.co.nz with your name, the week’s theme, your video’s title and your city/town in the message. The deadline for each week to get videos in is 5PM on the Friday. So for example, the deadline for Week 1 is Friday 3 April, 5PM.

We look forward to seeing your work. Be a part of DEGNZ Play!
