"Commercial" art: Video Call
Deadline October 31, 2010
Commercials may or may not be the most creative thing on TV or the Internet, but we think you can make them better. Take any broadcast commercial, cut it, dub it, repeat it, or flip it and make it art.
Artists, producers, directors kids, adults and non-art people are invited to submit a manipulated "commercial" of up to 60 seconds in length using a broadcast commercial as the raw footage. Each submission may utilize the video and audio in any way and may include other footage; pretty much everything is eligible. Videos must be under 3MB
in length in .flv
All submitted and accepted videos will be available at www.apexart.org/videocall.htm
and will be presented in an exhibition at apexart from November 10 – December 22, 2010. During the exhibition’s run, videos will be voted on by visitors of the exhibition space and the website. The top five works will be presented on a public screen in Manhattan and the creator of the top scoring work will receive a $2,000 cash prize.
All work must be submitted by Sunday, October 31, 2010.
Applications are welcomed and encouraged from around the world. Commercials do not have to be in English.
