WORLDOFSUPERHEROES SPONSORS OF “TWO WEEKS TO MAKE” 2015
November 19, 2014 By Steve Eyre
Once again we are proud to be the main sponsor of the Two Weeks to Make competition.
Musicians and filmmakers have just 14 hectic, pressurised days to collaborate to produce a music video.
I was fortunate enough to be invited to the screening and awards night last year to hand out the prizes and I was astonished by the quality of the videos on show.
If you think your up to it, there is still time to enter. All the details you need are in the press release below.
2Weeks2Make it 2015 – PRESS RELEASE
Introducing South Yorkshire’s very own MUSIC VIDEO COMPETITION with a £500 CASH PRIZE!!!
Open to both budding and established Filmmakers and Musicians. Do you think you’ve got what it takes to make a music video? Does your band need a boost in online promotion? Does your filmmaking show-reel need a little diversity? Or maybe you are interested in working with new people?
2Weeks2Make it is now in its 7th year running and is an excellent creative vehicle for making new contacts in the film and music industry. This is a music video competition based in the heart of the Sheffield Cultural Industries Quarter, but that reaches far and wide.
This is a non-exclusive competition open to anyone and everyone! University students, college students, graduates, independent filmmakers, animators, groups, individuals and so on. Its free to apply – successful applicants will simply need to join the SYFN for an annual fee of £25 (£15 for Students) at: https://www.syfn.org/membership/membershipform/
Incidentally, if you are a filmmaker based in Sheffield, Barnsley, Doncaster or Rotherham then its essential you join the South Yorkshire Filmmakers Network where you will receive free access to the year-long ‘Directions’ training course, continual admission to Shooters in the Pub networking events, Showroom Shorts and Café Clips screenings, unlimited postings in our bulletins, one-to-one advisory sessions with the SYFN and more! The SYFN is an industry hub for local independent filmmakers to support and connect with one another. See more about our membership at www.syfn.org/membership
All of you are welcome to apply! We are looking for lots of different kinds of music, as always, but want to encourage those singer-songwriters and indie bands to apply. Having said that, we even want the harpsichord-players, sousaphone-players and that odd oboe player we heard about: we know you’re out there and we want you in our competition! Tell your friends, tell your family, from signed to un-signed, you’re all welcome. Join us, Like us and Share us!
For a one-off fee of £75 you get yourselves a Music Video. It really is that simple! Working collaboratively with an SYFN 2Weeks2Make It competitor, together you’ll develop a Music Video that promotes your musical talents and their artistic filmmaking skills. All done and dusted in just 2 weeks ready for the big finale Gala Screening on Sunday the 5th April 2015 at the Showroom Cinema. You could be in with a chance of winning some fantastic prizes!
Past Winners and More: Check out the 2013 Audience Award winner (‘Fine Line Between Love and Crime’ by Ham Pocket’) has had over 5,600 Youtube views, and the Critics’ Choice Winner (‘Boat I Row’ by Sea Monster Eyes’) has had nearly 3,000 views alone.
