'2Weeks' Creator Rob Speranza joins the panel

It's nearly launch time! We’ll be welcoming a top of the range selection of panellists to provide entrants with hints and tips on creating a stellar music video in just two weeks.First up is Rob Speranza, creator of 2 Weeks 2 Make it. Rob has run 2Weeks2Makeit since 2005 in Sheffield. He’s seen hundreds of videos made for the competition and has judged several previous Midlands 2Weeks competitions, too.

You’ll need to pay close attention to his words of wisdom as Rob will be one of the judges for this year’s Midlands competition. The winner of the Judges’ Award will be announced at the gala screening on 27 May.

So who is this Rob Speranza?

He's the brain behind 2weeks2makeit and the founder of The South Yorkshire Filmmakers’ Network.

But first and foremost, Rob is an in-demand, skilful film producer and has produced five feature films and over 400 shorts, music videos and short doc films.

Thanks to Rob and the regular events he curates around the city, Sheffield has seen a burst of new film talent on the scene in Yorkshire and further afield over the past twelve years.

He will be looking for skill and technical ability but also creative and resourceful filmmaking.
