Remember the Projector, a Brixton-based music video projection company, is offering a local band or soloist the chance to win a free music video. All you have to do is submit a song for consideration. Staff at the production company will then pick 5 of their favourite songs. Out of the final five, one will be picked at random to win.
What you win
Remember the Projector’s Chris Acton says: “The winning band will get a music video made for their submitted song free of labour charges. This means a free pre-production period where we will collaborate to create a concept for the video, 1 free shoot day using any of the kit we own in house for free and all post production work for free as well. The value of the prize is about £2000 and you get it all for nothing”
