My Rode Reel 2021 is over and the winners have been announced, with the overall Judge’s Prize winner being the video above; Two Halves by Chen Wei Choon, based in Malaysia, who walks away with a cool $250,000 in cash as well as a bunch of gear from the competition’s sponsors; Zhuyin, Insta360, Nanlite, Adobe, Arri, DZOFilm, Pelican, MZed, Musicbed and Rode themselves.
It’s interesting to see an animated film winning this year, but it’s extremely well shot and edited with a great story. And there’s a hell of a lot of work been put into it as you can see in the behind the scenes below (which has also had a lot of work put into it).
Here are the rest of the winners from each category of the competition.

This year’s My Rode Reel competition has been to a very high standard, especially considering the challenges that most of us are still facing from the consequences of covid and the winners have been chosen from over 2,000 entries across 114 different countries. Congratulations to all of the winners!
Now to start prepping for My Rode Reel 2022!
