Make Common’s Day

(from CurrentTV)

Current is teaming up with hip-hop icon Common to give you the opportunity to direct your own music video with his track ‘Make My Day.’

On September 14th, go to current.com/common to get the song and some video assets you can use. Then, get creative and make a music video that really stands out. Use our assets or make your own but be sure you’re using footage that you own or that we provided you. Then upload your final work by September 28th at midnight PDT.

Common will hand pick his favorite video and we will feature it on current.com and on Common’s website: thinkcommon.com. If Current decides to air your submission on TV, we’ll pay you a cool $2,500 to acquire the rights to do so.

A helluva bullet point for your resume, dontcha think?

Check out current.com/common for more information and details.

Email vc2outreach@nullcurrent.com with any questions. See you on the 14th!

Call for Films! No Submission Fees Until 12/31/08!!

The International Black Women’s Film Festival is now accepting film submissions for 2009! Big changes this year, specifically, NO VHS tapes. Sorry, but they’re too bulky, too difficult to transport, and can get de-magnetized…which has happened.

Not to fret, I’m accepting DVDs, but you can also submit your film for consideration for the online film festival. (Just URLs, no “embed” codes, please.) Submissions to the online film festival are always free!

What else is free? Film submissions until December 31, 2008! Are you a previously selected filmmaker at the IBWFF? Then it’s free for you, too!!

Check out more at the site created just for filmmakers who are interested in submitting work. Remember, submissions are free until December 31, 2008…for realsies.
