Phil Bloom wrote in to tell us about a narrative short film contest he’s put together, Bloomfest 3. The contest calls for shorts under three minutes in length that reference or pay homage a well-known movie in some way, shape, or form. There is no specific guidance on what would be considered “well known”, so I suppose just go with your gut on that one. The deadline is March 15, 2009. A winner chosen by a panel of judges will be awarded a Letus Extreme 35mm lens adapter, and the audience choice winners are entitled to several other great gear prizes including a Cinevate Proteus Glider (the little brother to the Pegasus heavy lifter), Zacuto Zamerican arm kit, Magic Bullet Looks, or the ingenious Hood-Pro Sock Loupe (great review by Adam Wilt here).
