IT MUST BE VISUAL MUSIC. Most traditional film making utilizes music as a soundtrack, or an aural enhancement to the action and dialog on screen. The music may be wonderful, but it fills a supporting role in service to the film. Our customers, who are conductors of bands, orchestras and choirs, do not have a strong appetite for films that treat the music as a sound track. Instead, they are seeking digital media that allows the music to stand as an equal or dominant component of the event. Remember that the audience paid for a ticket to listen to music, not watch a film. While there are exceptions to this rule, we place it at the top of this section because we have seen so many valiant film making efforts fall flat due to missing the required aesthetic.
MEDIA STYLE. You are welcome to submit cinematography, animation, motion graphics, stop-motion photography, or any other media type in any style. The only stipulations we set are: 1) Your media must suit the music, and 2) Your content must be appropriate for families.
One of the best parts of creating visual music is that it invites creativity and pure expression. If you approach your project like a traditional film shoot you are probably doing it wrong.
