SXSW SUBMISSIONS DUE FRIDAY, February 22nd by 5PM
WE are currently accepting submissions for the 2019 SXSW screening RTF Sneak Peeks. Please submit film you shot in either spring, summer or fall 2018 semesters.
Below are the encoding specs and recommendations for encoding your film both for RTF’s SXSW screening and RTF’s Establishing Shots screenings.
On the file, we need your film to have 3 seconds of black at the head of the program and 3 seconds of black on the tail. Also, the file should not have any color bar, count down, or slate in the beginning. Please make sure your final audio mix is an average of -6db. And lastly, the files should be labeled correctly with the complete film title, your name, and class.

Max Bit rate: 24Mbps

We strongly encourage using the Adobe Media Encoder’s Vimeo present. Start with the Vimeo 1080p HD preset under Web Video/Vimeo. Then modify the preset by changing the bitrate to 24Mbs on the Maximum Bitrate (Mbps): slider.
Please submit a copy of your completed film encoded to Apple ProRes 422 (LT) even if you don’t wish to be included in the Establishing Shots screening. This is so we can archive a high quality version of all RTF projects.
Please use the following naming parameters when naming your files, film name_your name_class_f_ for films. Be sure to include the name of your film in the subject line of all emails.
