2012 Spike Music Video Competition – Deadline reminder!
Attention young bands, groups or ensembles of all genres from Cork! Those of you who are interested in this great new exciting opportunity to win a music video shoot on Spike Island need to step up the pace. The extended deadline is tomorrow Friday 3rd August, just a little more than 24 hours away!
First Cut! Film Festival is delighted with the interest the Competition has generated so far and would like to thank all those who have applied. We will be in touch shortly.
Remember bands must submit songs and proposals outlining how they would feature the striking buildings of Fort Mitchell and the special setting of Spike Island in Cork Harbour in their music videos.
A panel of judges will choose the best seven songs and creative ideas based on the quality of the songs and the bands’ creative approach.
Each of the 7 chosen bands will then be supported by a professional film maker who will work with them through filming and post-production.
The music videos will be premiered during the First Cut film festival in Cobh in October.
There are also plans to have the seven bands perform on the bandstand on Cobh’s promenade during the film festival.
In the first year of the competition, entry will be restricted to young bands from Cork County only.
Contact festival organisers by email at firstcutfilm@ gmail.com.

7 Young bands will have the opportunity to work with professional filmmakers on a music Video for one of their original songs, on Spike Island, Cork Harbour.
The winning bands will perform live on the Bandstand in Cobh and a Gala screening of all 7 videos will take place on the 5th October.
