Have you ever lost your iPhones?

Contest Brief

Hello Freelancers,

We are in need of short videos of iPhones getting lost. The ideal video shows one iPhone getting lost somehow and its owner walking away from his or her lost iPhone. We are open ideas! The general feel of the clip should be someone losing their iPhone; and the iPhone is the star, and the owner walks away leaving the iPhone behind. The videos should be short and simple, around 30-60 seconds is great but we are flexible. Please take a look at the video example attached for what we are looking for and how we plan to stitch these videos together. If an entry includes multiple iPhones, it gets bonus points but this is not required.

We are looking for real video footage, not animation at this time.

The final use of this video will be advertising for a product that helps you keep track of your phone.

Freelancers encouraged to upload in-progress videos to get feedback early. If you have an iPhone and a camera please enter this contest. Multiple entries will be purchased!

The ideal closing shot of the video is a shot where the phone is visible in the foreground and you can see the owner walking away from the phone in the background.

Examples:
- iPhone slides down into couch cushion
- iPhone left behind in Taxi / Uber / Lyft
- iPhone left behind at a table in a coffee shop or restaurant
- iPhone lost at a bar
- iPhone falls from bag

Contest Details:
- $242 dollar prize
- multiple entries will be purchased!

Technical Details:
- target resolution 1920x1080
- target frames: 60 fps or higher. 24 fps okay.
- we only need iPhone's in the video (no Android).
- bonus points for latest gen devices (iPhone XS)

    Hi Everyone,
    I wanted to provide some information on how we plan to select winners for this contest:
    - The contest will remain open until Friday (as of this message that is 2 days and 20 hours from now).
    - We have a selection committee of three people that will review all entries over the weekend. This committee will rank the entries and set a internal price for them.
    - Once ranked and priced, we will reach out to all finalists.
    - Finalists will be asked to provide a sample of the video entry (not the full entry a small cut) so we can verify specifications. If the sample matches our requirements, we will then award the winners based on our rank and price list.

    Please let me know if anyone has any questions!

    Hi again, could you please tell me, you need entries only shot in one shot, or it is also fine if it's an edited video with multiple angles?

    • 1 week ago
    1. FRELabs
      Contest Holder
      • 1 week ago

      Hello. Multiple angles are fine as long as they are simple edits (no fancy transitions etc). For the very end of the video we would prefer a single shot where the iPhone is in foreground and you see its owner walking away (or entering a building, leaving frame) in the background.

    Hello, I wanted to thank everyone who has submitted an entry so far. We are really impressed by your work so far. A couple notes for future entries:
    - The ideal last shot of the videos is a scene where you can see the iPhone in the foreground while the owner walks away (or enters a building) in the background.
    - We will purchase multiple entries, so if your entry does not win the contest please set a price for the entry.
