AV Music Video Weekender

AV Music Video Weekender

Thu 16 Feb 2017 - Sun 19 Feb 2017

Free event, just turn up! 


Sleep is for the weak or through the week in this game! 48 hours of fast paced non-stop filming/ animation/ illustation/ editing, where you and your team put together a music video for a local recording artist! 


Choose either your own piece of music or from a selection of tracks provided - then your teams will compete to write, direct, produce and edit the best music video you can over the course of the weekend.  Industry professionals will be on hand with advice and assistance plus a studio place, various filming locations with blue screens and other opportunities will be made available over the entire 48 hour period.  Videos will be judged by our panel of industry professionals with cash and equipment prizes to be won and you'll also have your vieo aired on the big screen and the opportunity for it to be used by the musician.  


Film teams will be judged on best overall video, best interpretation of musicians brief, best use of available resources and best incorporation of the Weekender theme, which is 'sustainability'. Get in touch with our partners Paradise Palms via their website if you would like to register a team, submit a piece of music for consideration, help with production, provide a film location or venue, offer services as an actor or model or get tickets to the screening event.
