Johannesburg 48 Hour Music Video Project
The 48 Hour Music Video Project visits Johannesburg the weekend of December 6 - 8. Bands (or songwriters) and filmmakers from all over the Johannesburg area will team up to see who can make the best music video in only 48 hours.
The Band/Film Team combo has 48 hours to create a music video from scratch for one of the Band's original songs. All videos are due back Sunday evening.
- Bands – bring your pre-recorded songs!
- Film Teams – bring your gear, your talent and an ability to totally wing it!
Screenings & Awards
All entries (even late films) are guaranteed and are guaranteed a rocking live screening ! Bands – this is your opportunity to reach a whole new fan base!
Those in attendance will help choose the Audience Award. Videos submitted on time are eligible to win "Best 48 Hour Music Video of Johannesburg".
The top video will go on to screen at Filmapalooza 2014 in New Orleans next March!! This is our annual festival weekend packed full of screenings, networking, happy hours and lots of fun.
How It Works
Musicians & Filmmakers Unite
In a new twist, Bands/Musicians and Film Teams pair themselves up before registering. Don't have a film team/band/musician friend? We'll have meet and greets so that you can meet potential collaborators.
Music Video Requirements
Band/Film Team combos must draw inspiration from a one of several photos provided at the Kickoff Event. To ensure that no shooting is done before the filming weekend, each band/film team combo will also be given two elements. In each scene, one of the two elements must appear.
