Watch this space.
Flinders University and Music SA have joined forces to deliver a new music video clip production initiative.
The initiative, known as Vision and Sound has come about by Music SA and the Department of Screen and Media at Flinders University identifying a niche for two major industry art forms to come together.
Third year students from the Bachelor of Creative Arts in Screen Production will collaborate with local bands to produce a range of music film clips of diverse genre for exhibition and distribution through broadcast, online and for digital mobile devices such as mobile phones and tablets.
Screen and Media lecturer and Project Coordinator, Cole Larsen says “This wonderful initiative provides an exciting opportunity for screen and media students and local bands to work together in a near industry environment, to make music film clips with solid artistic outcomes for both parties.”
Music SA General Manager Lisa Bishop adds “I’m hoping to see this alliance develop in the future and become a valuable vehicle for local musicians to boost their marketing toolkit with content made locally.”
Vision and Sound aims to develop and produce a music clip for local Music SA musicians (band or solo artist), and interpret that song in a creative and resourceful way which furthers the careers of both the musicians and the filmmakers.
A maximum of 21 music clips will be selected, with participating acts required to put $200 toward production costs.
When applying, acts should carefully consider one of their own original songs, it should be recorded, mixed and mastered and possibly released or be released as a single this year.
**Local musicians who applied for the Media Resource Centre’s Clip It! initiative and missed out are strongly encouraged to apply.**
If selected, acts will need to be available to attend a Meet n’ Greet with student filmmakers on Wednesday 9th March at 6pm at St Paul’s to discuss ideas. They will also be required to sign an agreement with the film students and make themselves available for a 2 day shoot during March.
As an added bonus bands will take part in the production of a 60 second I LOVE LIVE MUSIC short film completion with over $12,000 worth of prizes on offer for musicians and filmmakers.
Music SA is putting out a call to all acts (solo and bands) to apply for this exciting opportunity.
To do so please complete the simple Entry Form here by Friday 4th March and if selected you will be contacted by 7th March.
The Bachelor of Creative Arts in Screen Production is recognised as the premiere course of its type in South Australia and is designed for students who want to fill key creative roles in the film, television and digital media industries.
Music SA is a not-for-profit organisation that promotes and supports original contemporary musicians, audiences and the industry in South Australia.
