Scottish Edge Video Experience

#EDGE11

29studios have teamed up with Scottish EDGE for round 11 of the UK’s largest funding competition #EDGE11. This was launched on the 31st of July with all entries required by 6th of September.
To take part you must be an up-and-coming, innovative, high-growth entrepreneurial talent, based in Scotland.  If that is you, then you can download your application here: https://portal.scottishedge.com/ Go for it, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

 

Fully immersive video experience

This year #EDGE11 will be a fully immersive video experience. 29studios are working to capture the Scottish EDGE journey from the viewpoint of those entering the competition, the judges, funders and EDGE team themselves. Capturing the highs, the lows and everything in between. To do so we are collecting user generated content of the moments that are simply not possible for us to capture.

Building a business is addictive, it’s emotional, it’s a rollercoaster and we want to share this with the world.  We are then pulling together all of this amazingly unique content and creating one epic Grand Final video worthy of global acclaim. Now that’s how you kick off a Grand Final with a bang.

This joint project is called ‘The Cutting EDGE’, and is brand new for the Scottish Business community. Our aim is that will leave a lasting legacy for years to come for all those involved.

 

How YOU can get involved?

Scottish EDGE are looking for all applicants to share your raw unedited video content, following YOUR EDGE journey! No expensive equipment is needed, just use your regular smartphone (which are brilliant these days, just saying). No editing is required, we will take care of that. Just recognise a moment and capture that moment for everything it is worth. If it means something to you, then it means something to us!

Below you will hear from 29Studios Founder Kev O’Neil, giving you some great tips on how to capture YOUR EDGE Journey on Mobile phone. After which just Send it in to us at EDGE11@29studios.com and we will do the rest!

 

So it really is as simple as that. Film your EDGE11 Journey and be part of this amazing experience. The 29ERS are looking forward to seeing the content flying into our inbox and counting down the days to the Grand Final in December
