Nanlite launches ‘Project Spark’

Posted on Mar 3, 2023 by Samara Husbands

Nanlite’s ‘Project Spark’ competition calls for creators of narrative, documentary, commercial and experimental creators

Advertisement feature

Project Spark invited creators from across the globe. Whether you’re an aficionado of narrative, documentary, commercial or experimental projects, get involved. Alongside its sponsors, ATOMOS, RODE, DZOFILM and ARTLIST, the project will reward you with bonuses and prizes provided by NANLITE, NANLUX and the four sponsors.

The theme for this year is Reflection. Light originates from somewhere, but nowhere to terminate. Different surfaces in nature reflect the same light with different results ­– soft, hard, focus and spread, etc. Surfaces in heart and mind reflect emotion and soul, memory and reality. Surface can be defined by you; what will be the reflection of your surface? The Spark asks the question, and your reflection will be the answer.

All winning works will be shown on 4 July 2023!
