Blind Date Music Video Competition
July 11 8:00 pm
Proudly Supported by
Oh Lordy…it’s back on for another year and we can’t wait to get this baby cranking!
Judged live, this night is bound to be something special at the Luna Cinemas as we bring together musicians and filmmakers in this unique creative experiment which in its first year (a couple of years back) had some music clips winning prizes around the world!
The basic idea is this:
- Some of our best local musicians offer up a song or two! 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!
- Filmmakers can make more than one video and if you’re a musician or band with a song – then submit that into to the mix.
1. Chose a song (there are only 2 separate clips per song).
2. Email the competition ringmaster and mastermind, Jen Jamieson to see if song is available.
3. She’ll tell you if the band is keen to appear in the clip or not.
4. Make a video.
4. Submit by June 8.
5. Come to the screening! There’ll be beer and pizza available!
