Independent record label announce an £11,000 competition for filmmakers

Entrants are invited to submit an original film incorporating one of 4 songs taken from Mike Marlin’s forthcoming album ‘Man On The Ground’.

The songs "Heartbeat", "Steve McQueen", "Girl From Chelsea Bridge" and "Left Behind" are available to competition entrants to download in full and instrumental versions through the Mike Marlin website. Details on how to enter the competition and access the songs can be found here:

Entries will be judged by Marlin, and director Lee Archer, who will choose 2 winning films for each song, awarding a top prize of £1000 and a runner up prize of £500, giving filmmakers 8 chances to win.

Entries can take the format of a music video, however this is not a requirement. Films can made specifically for the competition, or the song (or instrumental) can be used to provide a new soundtrack for an existing film. There is no limit to the number of films you may submit to the competition. In addition, an overall winner will be chosen and given the opportunity to make the official music video for Mike Marlin’s next single, with a budget of up to £5000.

Closing date for entries is 30th November 2011. Entries must be submitted as YouTube/Vimeo links on the official Mike Marlin Facebook page
