RØDE Microphones are a long-trusted brand in the Australian film industry with an extensive list of premium audio products on offer to all levels of filmmakers.

But it’s not all about the gear!

Recently, Any Camera Will Do went ‘BEHIND THE BRAND’ with RØDE Microphones. We interviewed RØDE ambassador Clinton Harn about the company’s level of support and nurturing attitude it provides to emerging filmmakers, both locally & internationally via the ‘My RØDE Reel’ short film competition.

Clinton and the team at RØDE champion the ethos that supporting your local industry & audience has been paramount to the success of My RØDE Reel. ‘It’s all about giving back to the community’.

Check out our chat with Clinton below:

BEHIND THE BRAND with RØDE Microphones:


The My RØDE Reel short film competition exploded onto the world stage 3 years ago & has since made waves with record entry numbers, leading the comp to become recognised as the largest international short film competition to date.

Designed as a platform to encourage independent filmmakers from all walks, My RØDE Reel provides plenty of incentive – boasting a prize pool of over $300,000 in professional gear, along with a new Female Filmmaker award.

Because film is a visual medium, the audio element tends to get tossed to the wayside on many a project. But it’s important to recognise that good audio is a hallmark to any film that exudes high production value.
