Red 5 Studios, the developer behind Firefall (free-to-play FPS multiplayer shooter), has recently offered up a contest for fans to win a trip to PAX East 2012, an Alienware Mx14 laptop, or an ASTRO A40 audio system. All fans have to do to win one of these prizes is create their own Firefall trailer featuring one of the Battleframes (think load outs: medic, assault, heavy, etc) from the game. Red 5 is offering up all the assets you need to create your own trailer, so plenty of unreleased gameplay footage and audio files will be available for you burgeoning film makers.
If this sounds like a project you’d be interested in you can sign up and begin creating your very own Firefall trailer via this link. The fan made trailers will then be uploaded to YouTube and the standard rating system (Like, Dislike, and Views) will be used to pick a winner. For the official details and the press release head on down past the break. I’ve also posted an example for you to see what Red 5 is looking for.
