My friend Troy has a band, Dirtnap which plays alot of gigs in Southern Arizona and is always talking of the great footage he has been able to get with three or four GoPro cameras throughout the stage. I shoot Band Videos every now and then and have used the cameras to compliment and give coverage to the main cameras. With the features available and the pricing of the latest GoPro line, it really is possible to eliminate a master camera and pretty much capture everything with GoPro's. This idea works out great with a new contest from Guitar Center and GoPro called the Done in One campaign.
Bands can capture their best One Camera Raw Video from GoPro and submit it for a chance to win career supporting prize packages from Guitar Center, GoPro and participating musical instrument partners.
Here is the Official "Everything You Need To Know" from GoPro
How to Enter:
Musicians nationwide are encouraged to upload their best-unedited GoPro music moment, captured with a GoPro camera, to the official Done in One website: http://www.guitarcenter.com/doneinone. Judges will review artist's submissions based on cinematography and perspective, creativity and originality, sound and lighting and performance and style. After GoPro approves and selects the top raw clips, the team will post the content to the official Done in One contest website (see contest website for full details). One winning video will be selected each month to receive the monthly prize pack and one Grand prize winner will be selected after 5 months to receive the ultimate prize pack.
Monthly Prize Package Includes:
- $1,000 in cash and gear from GoPro
- $1,000 Guitar Center shopping spree
- New gear from the top musical instrument partners, valued at nearly $8,000
Ultimate Grand Prize Includes:
- $20,000 in cash and studio recording time from GoPro
- $5,000 Guitar Center shopping spree
- Over $40,000 worth of high-end gear from the top music instrument partners
"Guitar Center has worked for years to create new ways to support musicians and it's always inspiring to see other brands join the cause," says Manager, Music Marketing & Artist Relations for Guitar Center, Jake Cheung. "GoPro has been a great partner for us on past programs, not to mention they are one of the world's largest and most respected content providers, so this was a perfect opportunity to come together to give musicians a chance to be discovered."
Musical Instrument Partners for Done in One include: DW, Blue Microphones, QSC, Taylor Guitars, Dunlop, Zildjian, Yamaha, Epiphone and Ernie Ball.
