Hey gang, Brad Moore here, and I just wanted to let you know about something really awesome…

The team over at Fstoppers have put together a contest in search for the best Behind The Scenes videos out there, and they’re giving away over $21,000 worth of gear to the winners, including cameras, lights, softboxes, camera bags, and more!

Plus, Scott Kelby is one of four judges picking the winners!

They’re looking for videos that are creative and extremely informative, so don’t go thinking you have to put something together that looks like a Hollywood movie or some big production.

Even if you’re not that experienced with shooting videos, use this as motivation to get out there and try it out! It’s becoming more and more important for businesses and promotion every day, so why not let this be your jumping off point? Just grab an iPhone or HDSLR and go shoot!

The deadline for the contest is December 31, 2011, so make sure you get your entry in before then. Good luck!

Hey gang, Brad Moore here with the latest news and updates!
