BAFTA-winning director gives unsigned artists chance to score latest movie
Muzu.tv, the UK and Ireland's music video site, is launching a competition today that gives ten unsigned artists the chance to score part of a major motion picture.
The competition is called Soundtraxs and it's the first-ever competition that gives independent music artists the opportunity to create the soundtrack for a major motion picture.
The film in question is Relative Desire, which is being directed by BAFTA award-winning director Michael Baig Clifford and will star Imogen Poots (Fright Night, 28 Weeks Later, V for Vendetta) and Harry Treadaway (Fish Tank, Control, Brothers of the Head). It's due out in 2011.
All entrants have to do to enter is download some storyboards from the film, available on www.MUZU.tv/Soundtraxs, sync the video with their original music and upload it to the Soundtraxs site.
The public will get to rank the entries according to the number of views, ratings, comments on the site, and Twitter and Facebook mentions. From there, an expert panel of music and film industry bods will choose the final ten tracks that will appear in the film.
In addition, the artists chosen will professionally record their tracks and also receive royalties from Relative Desire soundtrack - all pretty exciting.
