Celebrated philosopher and cultural critic Friedrich Nietzsche once quipped, “Without music, life would be a mistake.” Though Nietzsche was infamously obtuse–and, let’s be honest, kind of a dick‒this quote is straightforward and sincere. No matter your age, ethnicity, native language, or hot dog topping preferences (if your go-to is still ketchup…why?), music moves us all.
At ECG, our team displays their love for music every day. We blare Kanye, Childish Gambino, and Chance, the Rapper while pulling gear. Our editors Collin & Emily constantly scrutinize the picks on their Discover Weekly playlists on Spotify. I listen to the Midnight In Paris soundtrack WAY too much while I’m writing (hint: I’m listening to it right now). The point being: we are all driven by music, entranced by it, even.
But, more importantly, as a video production agency, we love pairing music with the medium we know best: video. Which leads us to…
Our Big Announcement
Are you an up-and-coming artist or band? Do you have a cool, unique sound that you want to deliver to the masses? If so, ECG Productions is here to help.
We are excited to announce that for the next 3 months we will be accepting submissions from artists to win a FREE music video! That’s free as in “no money required.” That’s free as in all you have to do is enter and you could walk away with a cutting edge, visually stunning music video produced by industry professionals. To put it in terms of cold, hard cash, that’s about a $20,000 value that we’re giving away!
We’ll work with you every step of the way, from concept, to planning, to providing an amazing shoot day experience. In short: we’ll give you the big band music video treatment even if you’re still just rocking out at dive bars.
How Do I Submit?
Okay aspiring artists, this is the important part of the post, so pay attention! Here’s how you can submit to win a free music video from ECG Productions:
- Think about what makes you, as an artist or a band, the most deserving of a free music video.
- Film a quick testimonial video that tells us about you. Who you are as an artist or band? Why you deserve to win? You don’t need to get too crazy here, just a simple video filmed on your smartphone will do the trick.
- At the end of the video, provide a quick snippet of the song you’d want to make into a music video. We’re selective of the artists that we work with at ECG, and we only make music videos for tracks that we connect with. So, show us why we should love your music.
- Once you’ve made your video, post it to our Facebook page. Label your post as:
ECG Productions Free Music Video Entry
Artist/Band Name – Song Name
After that, all you need to do is sit back, relax, and keep playing music. We’ll look over all of our submissions and talk it over as a team. On Monday, October 30th we will make out final decision. Once we have an official winner, we’ll announce it on Facebook and reach out to you directly to let you know the good news.
A Quick Example From…SoundNoise
To give you a taste of what we're looking for from contestants, here's a sample video from our interns' talented supergroup, SoundNoise:
Musicians, To Your Marks!
This is the kind of contest that can elevate your exposure and take your music career to the next level. A beautiful, inventive music video can do wonders for generating buzz. Get people interested, get people talking, and soon they’ll be listening as well.
ECG Productions’ Free Music Video Contest only has a limited time run, however, so be sure to enter ASAP! Who knows: once we get your music video out there, maybe it’ll be your band that we’ll listen to as we pull gear and jam out to on our Spotify playlists.
Enter now and post it to our ECG Facebook page to find out!
