The Boston Spaceships Video Contest
Boston Spaceships A.K.A. John Moen, Chris Slusarenko, and Robert Pollard have announced a video contest for Winston's Atomic Bird the lead track off of the forthcoming Brown Submarine album. All you film maker types need to jump on this and quick. The winner will receive an autographed copy of Brown Submarine signed by the entire band.
Here's the details on the contest as posted on the bands site earlier today. We're looking for talented (and crazed) souls to create some fantastic visions to this tune. Anything is possible... straight out freak fests, sad British-styled dramas, whatever you think will do the song justice. And did you check out the grand prize above? Not too shabby. So get crackin' on these fine pieces of work and make us all proud. Post your finished videos on YouTube and then contact us at our MySpace page(www.myspace.com/bostonspaceships) to notify us that your video is ready for viewing. Please don't send us any video files -- just links to your posted YouTube videos. We will then post a link to it from our lovely site for maximum viewing. Only folks who contact us about their work being online will be eligible for the grand prize. After the end date, the band will pick the top 3 and then we will have you, the jury, pick the final winner! Videos will be accepted until noon PST on Friday Sept 5th. We will post the final 3 videos on Monday Sept. 8th and then you will have until noon PST on Monday Sept. 15th to vote for your favorite video.
