Video Challenge: Announcing the Winner

Posted by Mattias on 2014-04-02

The first ever Propellerhead Video Challenge has come to a close! Reason is well known for its creative flow, so we wanted to see how far you could get in only 5 minutes. This challenge tasked users to create a song from scratch and record it all in a 5 minute video.

We received tons of great entries so a HUGE thanks to everyone who submitted! In the end though, there can only be one winner… After much deliberation, the judges at PropellerHQ have now chosen the winning entry:

With high production values, excellent music and careful explaining of each step—Speo’s video had everything we’re looking for. Congratulations from all of us at Propellerhead! Make sure you follow Speo’s YouTube channel for more Reason tutorial videos.

With so many great entries, we’ll also be picking some honorable mentions. Make sure you check back later this week to watch them, right here on the Propellerhead Blog.
