The world might have gone through an 18-month period like no other, but there has been no shortage of new products and services to improve the lives of filmmakers. Times are tough for many businesses, so it’s vital to choose the best gear to give you and your clients the edge – and help drive creativity to brand new levels.
The Pro Moviemaker Gear of the Year Awards are globally recognised as the Oscars of filmmaking kit, where the best and most innovative companies are honoured and recognised. The awards are in their fifth year, continuing to reward the finest gear, by the people who use it. There is no shortage of exciting products for moviemakers. We have seen staggering cameras launched, and as always these are the flagship awards for many. But there has been excellence throughout the whole gamut of kit, from lenses to lights, stabilisers to software, and audio to accessories of all kinds.
This year, we have added several categories to honour the service providers in our exciting and fast-paced industry. So rental houses, retailers, training services and educators are all being recognised for their indispensable roles. As you would expect, the editorial team and gear testers of Pro Moviemaker have debated long and hard – and brought together a shortlist of the best kit and services around. But it’s you, our expert readers, that take it on from here. You are the most integral part of the process.
We’re calling on you to cast votes for the equipment and services that have made a significant difference in your world. Your vote is essential in deciding what should be acknowledged and commended, so please go online and have your say in our quick and easy survey.
You don’t have to vote in all categories – just those you have experience in, or if you have a viewpoint to express. We also have six Editor’s Choice awards, for equipment we feel is thoroughly deserving of special mention. These are for the following categories: mirrorless cameras, cinema cameras, audio, support, lighting and special innovation. But the real winners are all voted for by you, so please get involved and have your say!
Everyone who casts their ballot will have the opportunity to be entered into a prize draw after voting closes, and the first name pulled out at random will win a case of wine!
