Following on from a huge inaugural year last year, The Music Video Mash Up filmmaking competition is back for 2011- and with the addition of Sydney and Melbourne to the competition, bigger and better than ever.
What Is It ?
MVMU is a time-based music video making competition. It’s simple:

· They are then paired up randomly and given just THREE days to create, shoot, edit and submit a music video.
Bands – all you need is a recorded original song (no covers)
Filmmakers – all you need is a camera and a crew
There are stacks of prizes to be won including the winning clip playing on Video Hits, PLUS a representative from the winning band and filmmakers will be flown to the Video Hits set to be interviewed on air!
There’s also awards specific to your field, all details to be announced.
