How to get funding to direct a music video?

Listen to the song below and submit one sentence pitching your vision for Mike Vermeil's song, "Whit Talk." For this contest, you must also submit a link to an example of your previous work (it can be a portfolio or just one example).

Listen to the full song directly on our website:

Listen on Spotify:

The track comes from Vermeil's full album, An Event by the People, for the People. Each song on the album has a different flavor and represents a different style or genre of music. It represents all different kinds of people and stories, hence the album title. Because of this, Vermeil is incredibly open to all sorts of music video pitches.

We're an alternative to tedious and expensive film grants and competitions, and we've created a community that supports films at every step in the process. Depending on the project, we're there before the writing even starts all the way through submitting to a top-tier film festival. Our fund covers almost any expense you incur while making your film.

By entering any of our contests, you get to join our growing community of filmmakers and financiers. Even if your project isn't selected in a main contest, we may contact you with funding to develop a different project.

Submissions are now closed. Thanks to all who submitted! Please check your email for the judging results about one month after the deadline.
