Are you a solo musician or in a band in need of an attention-grabbing video for one of your tracks? Or are you a filmmaker with big ideas looking to get more exposure and experience? Either way you will no doubt know the importance of video content.
2Weeks 2MakeIt could just be your chance to shine!
Applications are now open for 2Weeks 2MakeIt 2018! This is an exciting music video competition based in the creative, cultural heart of Sheffield, but reaching out across the entire UK and beyond. The competition pairs up music-makers with filmmakers and then tasks them with making a music video in just 2 weeks! Bands/musicians from all genres are welcome to apply and successful applicants will be randomly teamed up with filmmakers and given a fortnight exactly to produce their music video.
The pairing up of applicants takes place at our launch event and Industry Day on the 6th October in Sheffield at the Site Gallery after which the newly formed teams will have precisely 14 days to work their magic. Then, you’ll be in the running to win over £3,000 in prizes!
As long as you’re open to ideas, flexible and up for a challenge, anyone with a bit of experience can apply! From students to professionals, it is free to apply for everyone – however successful applicants will need to be members of the SYFN which is an industry hub for independent filmmakers and creatives to support and connect with one another (annual fee of £30 / £20 for students available at https://syfn.org/membership/)
If you’re making music, we want to hear from you. From pop to punk or classical to classic rock, solo songwriters to super-groups, no style is off limits! This is your chance to get your very own music video for that new single or that upcoming EP launch and get it fast! We don’t call it 2Weeks2MakeIt for nothing!
All we ask from our musicians is a one off payment of £80. It really is that simple – and maybe the most affordable music video you’ll ever make! Once paired up randomly with a filmmaker, together you’ll develop a music video that promotes your musical talents and showcases the ideas you develop in your team. You’ll get to see the finished film on a big screen at the the Showroom Cinema on 28th October when the judges and audience will decide who takes home the cash prizes and more!
