June 25, 2019

Organization Name: Artist Trust

Type: N/A

Fee: Free


Thank you for your interest in Music Video Jams! This form is specifically for filmmakers. If you are a musician or band, you can find your submissions portal on the main page at www.spokanearts.submittable.com
2019 will be the second year Music Video Jams, which pairs emerging filmmakers with emerging musicians to create a brand-new music video that is conceived, shot, produced, and distributed locally. Through their collaboration, each team (both filmmakers and musicians) will have the chance to learn from other artists, showcase their own talent, find a bigger platform to share their work, meet new artists in the community, and much more.

Filmmakers are asked to submit 2 samples of a short project (1-6 minutes long, maximum). Filmmaker teams and musician teams will be paired by the organizers; they will not be self-selected. Teams will be announced on August 1 at the kickoff event, to be held at the CMT studios (104 W. 3rd, Suite B) and broadcast live by KYRS.
Each team of filmmakers will create a music video of the musician/band’s work. In addition to producing a music video to be publicly screened on September 9, the filmmaker team will agree to provide film & b-roll footage to the organizers. The winning filmmaker/band team will be eligible for a cash prize.

May 4- June 24: Submissions open for filmmakers. Deadline is Monday, June 24 at 11:59 p.m.

June 25- June 30: Jury selects and then notifies artists/artist teams
Monday, August 5: Kickoff at Community Minded Television (CMTV14)
Filming/Production: August 6-18
September 9: Screening/Awards at The Bartlett

Preference will be given to emerging filmmakers who would benefit from this experience versus more established filmmakers with significant portfolios. Questions? Contact Juan Mas (dogma8@aol.com) for clarification.
Music Video Jams is brought to you by The Bartlett and Purple Crayon Pictures, with support from partners Community Minded Television, KYRS, and Spokane Arts.
