Budding filmmakers had to submit examples of their work and then six were chosen to enter the finals. The finalists were kitted out with latest broadcast camera gear and financially supported to follow a top class extreme athlete on one of their death defying adventures with a brief to make a ten minute film. These finalists will then show their finished films at the 2009 Outdoors Show at the NEC, Birmingham (March 27th – 29th).
