Student teams will learn how to produce top-quality music videos for their respective bands.
NOVAC has also partnered with WWOZ to narrow down the selection of the bands that will pair with three local filmmakers, leading the team of students through the process.
“We are thrilled to partner with WWOZ to help cultivate two sectors of our cultural economy at one time,” says Darcy McKinnon, Executive Director of NOVAC. “By training locals in the art of film production, we are ensuring job opportunities in the creative economy, and we are also excited to support emerging musicians in the process.”
Interested musicians can sign up by emailing information about their band and a link to their music for consideration to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject: “Music Video Production Boot Camp”.
From February to March, the pre to post-production process of creating a professional music video, teams will go from discussing concepts to executing on location production, and then edit a final piece which will be displayed on the big screen at Sync Up Cinema 2015 at the end of April.
