Make a music video for Tymon Tymański & MU and win the scholarship at our workshop
Send us an idea for a music video for “Remedy” song by Tymon Tymański & MU and win the scholarship (covering fee, accommodation and meals) at our workshop funded by our Partner, Agora Publishing House.
To take part in the contest, you should register for the Film Spring Workshop on our website www.filmspringopen.eu, submit the competition work by the 30th of September to the following address: email@example.com and correctly fill out the application form posted on the contest website. On the competition website you will also be able to get access to Tymon Tymański & MU’s “Remedy” song, which you will find also here.
By the 5th of October, the competition jury will select the best three proposals, whose authors will receive scholarships. You can submit many competition entries. Tymon Tymański will be our guest at the workshop, so you can make music videos with his participation. More details about participation in the competition can be found in its regulations.
One of the members of the contest jury will be Kobas Laksa, a visual artist, director, photographer, author of films and music videos, who will be the tutor of music videos group at our workshop.
The artist, who received the main Polish award in the industry – Fryderyk for the music video of 2017, advices on what to take into account when making a clip:
“The most important thing is to find a stylistic key for the entire piece. It could be a way of filming, editing, specially selected people appearing in the clip or colours. Such decisions may turn out to be more important than the storyline itself, which is usually not particularly revealing, or properly deepened. It is good to have creative experience, but not necessarily dramatic, or film related. Music videos are closer to painting and poems, more so than to non-fiction or prose.”
Below you will find fragment of our interview with Kobas. Enjoy the read and good luck with your applications!
– What will the work in the music video group look like?
The workshops I led so far were for me an opportunity to listen to what others – usually younger and less experienced – have to say. We start with what they watch and listen to, and if we concentrate on the music videos, we review a few or more and discuss the details. The videos are by definition based on fresh and surprising ideas so there are no limits to imagination. When the draft of the script for a clip is being created, there are no foolish or bad ideas. All ideas can lead to an extraordinary discovery and transformation into a clip.
– What should a good music video be like?
It is certainly important that the creator is guided by intuition and artistically honest with himself and the viewers.
– What young filmmakers should pay attention to when working on their competition works?
Thousands of clips are created every day in the world, sometimes great ones are made by amateurs and sometimes by experienced and renowned artists. There are no rules, but there is an expectation that the clip will surprise us with something. I would also like to be surprised.
