CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
The Nickel & MusicNL Music Video Incubator (Incubator) is an exciting new project to help local artists create high quality music videos. This project invites bands, individual musicians and filmmakers to collaborate on a music video with professional-level mentorship and technical support. The Incubator encourages networking across disciplines, fosters the development of emerging filmmakers, and offers musicians a high quality promotional tool.
Musicians from Newfoundland and Labrador are invited to submit a song for consideration by the deadline of April 13, 2018 at 5pm. A peer jury will select two songs.
Once the songs have been selected, filmmakers will submit short written treatments for their proposed video. The band or individual musician will select which treatment and filmmaker they wish to work with.
Each participating filmmaker will be given access to high quality and insured equipment for two weeks, as well as support from a professional filmmaker mentor who will help produce the project. Teams must be available to film during the month of May. The finished videos will be screened as part of the Nickel Independent Film Festival (June 19-23) in St. John’s.
