VersusMedia is seeking entries for their first ever "Film Versus Music" ten minute film short contest starting on June 1st. Just as the name says, we want this film short contest to glorify the usage of music in film! It is our hope that this contest will help spread the benefit of musicians and filmmakers working together with a common goal, exposure. Usage of music in film can come from a wide range of film topics and genres, so we are not requiring a set theme to the film submissions.
The contest is open to any and all filmmakers worldwide. All films submitted in our contest are requested to use music from at least one independent musician. To support this need, filmmakers are recommended to use our "film seeking music" project listing service to locate their music needs. To date, we've assisted nearly 700 film projects worldwide with their music needs from our core database of musicians looking for exactly these types of opportunities.
To help eliminate extra costs for clearing the necessary music, we will be offering every musician and filmmaker in our database the ability to create One Free Digital Film License Agreement using our site throughout the duration of this contest.
Winners: We will name one Grand Prize winning film, which will receive a check for $1,000 US. Along with the winner, nine runner-up films will be placed on a professional DVD which will be made available for purchase early in 2006.
Requirements: The entry fee of $25 as well as a printed and signed copy of the release forms should be submitted with each film entry.
For further information regarding this contest, please visit the following webpage. http://www.versusmedia.com/contest.php
Sponsors: We are interested in speaking with film or music oriented companies looking to possibly donate service and/or product in exchange for sponsorship. Please contact us if you are interested.
Our service lists multiple types of film projects not limited to Film School student projects, small budget Indie Films, Digital Short Films, Corporate Projects and Films, and TV show pilots. It helps build a network base which may lead to future opportunities with larger budgets, rather than instant success and money. We've helped find music for films in India, Australia, the Netherlands, Canada, and as well as in the US. Some of the larger projects have been for films slated for Sundance, Cannes, and other international film festivals. We now offer, Digital Film License Agreements, a unique technology which allows our musicians and filmmakers the ability to legally sign licensing agreements electronically, and meets all security requirements in over 30 countries currently.
