BLIND DATE MUSIC VIDEO COMPETITION
Deadline Extended - June 10th
Oh Lordy!...we never stop wanting to engage with filmmakers and artists of all forms, so we're super happy to announce our Blind Date Music Video filmmaking competition.
You can't get a more simple or more enjoyable idea:
- Some of our best local musicians offer up a song or two - or in some cases a whole album! See the list and links below.
- Local filmmakers choose a track to make a film clip for and off they go.
- Some bands are keen to appear in the video, some won't, but our panel will select the best of the bunch to screen at a special gala screening during Revelation - which might also include a live surprise or two!
The list of available tunes for filmmakers are below. Click on the title and listen to the tune. Each song has got a limit of two teams who can register for that one song. If the song is already taken by two teams, you'll be notified by email so you'll have to pick another.
Filmmakers can make more than one video and if you're a musician or band with a song, feel free to submit it to us.
To pick a track, just email the competition ringmaster and mastermind, Jen here and she'll let you know if it's available. As well as special prizes on the night, your film may very well become the artist's official video and who knows what can happen from there!
