MEET THE WINNERS

Here's who will be joining the RØDE team in 2020 for the adventure of a lifetime

Cielo Croci

So here I am, 4am on the morning of the 3rd of December, 8 short hours before the competition closes, and the only honest synopsis I can think of is that this is what I managed to whip up in 48 hours to give you some small but hopefully meaningful impression of who I am as a person and filmmaker. I'd love to come work with RØDE, so I hope you enjoy my entry, I trust it will speak for itself.

CATHERINE

Film speaks in a universal language, using images to say what words cannot. I am drawn to stories that lean into the vulnerable and authentic experiences that shape who we are and where we have come from. I am inclined to tell stories that are birthed out of empathy — I choose to understand, I desire the closeness, and I embrace the vulnerability. I have hoped for this incredible opportunity to refine my techniques, skills, and storytelling through the Master Your Craft internship.

As I go through my day as a sound man (aspire to be a filmmaker as well), I will go through the reasons why I should be hired! I got my friend William Robinson to be the camera man, and my friend Zack Greene to play the music for me, I don't want to take away their credit away, because they helped me. I hope y'all enjoy this video and consider me! And whoever have to watch this video, have an awesome day!

WHAT YOU'LL GAIN

Experience

At RØDE, you’ll be an integral part of the Video team producing content day-in, day-out, and there are few things that will prepare you for your career like that! Aside from being mentored by our awesome crew, you’ll have full access to our professional gear, production studios, and editing suites.

Mentoring

As well as learning first-hand from the RØDE Video crew, you will receive one-on-one mentorship from renowned industry professionals across all areas of filmmaking, from directing to cinematography to post-production, and have access to a range of educational content from our friends at MZed.

A Showreel

The internship is an incredible opportunity to develop an impressive showreel. The RØDE Video team travels regularly and produces a wide range of content. You’ll be smack-bang in the thick of it (not to mention the fact that you’ll be free to travel around Australia, shooting as you please).

A Salary

You’ll be paid a salary so that you can take care of yourself, buy stuff, explore beautiful Sydney and travel around the country. You’ll also receive holiday pay and other benefits, and be provided with accommodation, so you don’t have to stress about your living arrangements while you’re here.
