CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
The Nickel & MusicNL Music Video Incubator is an exciting new project to help local artists create high quality music videos. Evolving out of the 48 HR Challenge, this incubator encourages networking across disciplines, and fosters the development and talent of filmmakers in our province while also allowing more time for collaboration.
We’re seeking three music and film teams this year, and are inviting bands, individual musicians, and filmmakers for the opportunity to work together, with the guidance of a mentor, on a music video. All submissions are due by May 17, 2017 at 5 pm.
After submitting a sample of your work, a jury will select the participants. They will then work together with the artists to determine the teams by May 26. Teams will then have two weeks to work together on a concept and shoot the video, with a completion date of June 11.
Participating filmmakers will be given access to high quality and insured equipment for one full day, as well as support from a professional mentor with experience making music videos. The finished videos will launch June 18th with a film crawl through Quidi Vidi, followed by a screening in the Nickel Independent Film Festival.
Submit a video link of their work via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 pm on May 17 with the subject line Music Video Incubator 2017.
Upload a bio and a streaming audio link by 5 pm on May 17.
