AWARDS & HISTORY
Look at all the winners from past MMEA Festivals and the NATAS awards. Travel back in time to see who won what!!
Check out these examples on a couple of categories that often have questions about them!
NATURAL AUDIO NEWS
This is a great example because it’s a mixture of everything that makes this category unique. The subject of the video is mic’d up, so you can use the natural audio from him as he’s going about removing that invasive plant. There’s also sound bytes from him that were recorded from a more “formal” interview. And then there is the natural audio from the b-roll of him removing the invasive plant.
This is a great example for this category because there was no formal interview at all. All of the audio is from the actual event and the story is told from the natural audio that was picked up during the demonstration.
SOCIAL MEDIA CATEGORY
Both of these are great examples of what this category is all about - promoting something at your school by using the social media app on your phone. All about school spirit.
Students from the area once again teamed up with Apple to create films. 10 students from all over Chicago- Barrington, Neuqua, HF, LF, OPRF, Maine South, Sandburg participated in the series.
