Whether a “Cinematic Masterpiece”, “So Bad It’s Great!”, or anything in between — the movie YOU make after playing Roll Camera! might be ready for the big time!
You'll even get to win actual awards - that is, an actual unique glittery playable "Remind Everyone You're an Award Winner" Idea card.
What it is
The Roll Camera! Awards are a monthly contest where you submit films you've made after playing Roll Camera! The Filmmaking Board Game, and have the chance to win prizes.
How it works
As you know, when you win a game of Roll Camera!, you will have created an actual story with the five scenes you shot. Your task now is to record and upload that film for awards consideration!
- Make a video taking us through the story of your finished film — it could be as simple as an entertaining reading of the cards, or as involved as a live-action recreation of your story including sound effects, music and credits. You decide!
- Upload your video to the appropriate "venue." On the first of each month we announce the online location of that month's awards (i.e., the Keen Bean Studio Discord, the Roll Camera BoardGameGeek forums, the Roll Camera Facebook group, etc). Entries can be submitted any time before the final day of the month.
- Vote on your favorite videos. Each venue will have a different system of voting. Pick the ones you think should win!
- We will announce the winner! The 3 qualifying videos with the most votes by the end of the final day of the month (CST) will be the nominees, and from those we will select and announce the winner. If that's you, send us your mailing address and the shiny unique award card will be yours!* If not, don't worry...there's always next month!
*Rules and stuff
