She creates innovative short-form videos for global brands and artists including Red Bull, DJI, and Chipotle. You can find her refreshing her inbox in Los Angeles.
We’ve teamed up with Ani, the COLLECTIVE team’s newest Resident Pro, to launch a contest that challenges your vertical video making - #FlatLayChallenge.
We're taking the traditional flat lay photography concept, adding motion to it and making it life sized by inserting YOU.
Choose a unique environment, showcase an arrangement of the awesome items you own. Your items could be gear, books, food, anything you like. The important thing is that you get creative in your layout and in placing yourself (or a friend) into the frame.
How you shoot from above (a drone, ladder, staircase, etc.) is totally up to your discretion.
Just have fun and find an interesting way to use motion in your video to bring your flat lay to life.
We have over $10k in prizes for the winners!
We’ll announce the #FlatLayChallenge prize winners exclusively on the brand new COLLECTIVE YouTube channel.
*Prizes comprised of display units (except for Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4k and DJI Mavic 2 Pro). Display units may be subject to unpackaging, display for promotional purposes, and repackaging (but not operation) prior to prize allocation and fulfilment.
