originally this was just for mobygratis.com users, but i decided to send it out to everyone because i think it's a pretty amazing opportunity for aspiring filmmakers.
As part of The 21st Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity 2011 (19 – 25 June), Saatchi & Saatchi partners with Vimeo and Moby to discover fresh filmmaking talent.
Moby, along with Saatchi & Saatchi, and international video sharing community Vimeo, is throwing down the gauntlet to the next generation of young filmmakers with a unique Music Video Challenge based on the theme of this year’s New Directors’ Showcase - ‘Hello, Future’.
So here’s the brief: Visualise the concept of ’Hello, Future’ in the form of a standout music video inspired by one of three tracks selected from Moby’s new album, ‘Destroyed’. The winner will be announced at this year’s Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase in Cannes on 23rd June, as well as on the Vimeo website. Not only will the winning Film Director have their film shown in front of more than 2,500 delegates at the ever popular New Directors’ Showcase, in the Grand Audi of the Palais, their promo will be introduced by Moby in a live video link, and they will be offered the chance to work on a project in a key office in the Saatchi & Saatchi Global Network.
This year’s competition will be judged by Curators from BUG Music Videos, and key representatives of Vimeo, Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide Creative Board, and Moby. BUG champion the art of the music video, and encourage new talent with their sellout showcases at the BFI in London. The winner will be selected by: members of Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide Creative Board, BUG, Vimeo and Moby.
