The 15 question trivia game starts with the easiest question first then to the hardest. They’re all related to video production, so if you’re a student or professional this should be a breeze!
All participants must answer every question correct in order to advance to the next question.
Players who answer incorrect or late are eliminated from the game entirely and must come back to another scheduled game to try again.
The last person standing who answered all questions correct and within the alloted time wins the daily prize!
Don’t worry, a live leaderboard is going to keep track for everyone to see who the champion is along the way.

Rode VideoMic Pro – May 14, 2020 @ 3 p.m. EST
If the survivor left standing can see at the end of answering 15 excruciating video production related questions, he/she can take home this compact and lightweight shotgun microphone from Rode. It features an integrated shockmount that mounts directly to your camera or boompole and reduces noise from various vibrations. The reworked windscreen design minimizes wind noise, making it well suited for outdoor shoots. The 3.5mm TRS output and detachable cable ensure proper hookup to your camera, and the selectable safety channel prevents accidental distortion by providing a duplicate audio signal at a lower level.
