BFI Film Academy in Aberdeen to produce music videos
Call for bands/artists to submit material
Here’s a fantastic opportunity to get involved in an exciting project, and get yourselves a video made for you or your band into the bargain..
Station House Media Unit (shmu) have been awarded funding to deliver training and inspire the next generation of local film talent. Station House has been making films in the North East of Scotland for 15 years and next year will deliver the prestigious BFI Film Academy.
The programme will be delivered over a 12-week period and 16 young people (aged 16-19) will be chosen to take part in the course alongside industry professionals and film practitioners.
The focus for the project will be producing music videos, and shmu are encouraging bands and artists to send through their music and/or existing videos for consideration, after which two bands/artists will be chosen to go through to the video production stage.
Bands/artists of any genre are welcome to apply. Sessions with the budding film-makers will then take place in Aberdeen on Saturday afternoons from 28 February, so it’s obviously preferable if you can make it to the city on those dates.
Simply email your music/videos (along with a short bio) headed “Music Submission” to firstname.lastname@example.org to be considered for this fantastic opportunity. Closing date for submissions is Saturday 21 February.
