The Ann Arbor Film Festival (AAFF) has teamed up with the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra (A2SO) for a creative and collaborative competition for 2010: Sight & Sound.
The competition consists of filmmakers visually "scoring" one of three winning musical compositions, as determined by the A2SO, created by students from the University of Michigan School of Music. The top rated video piece for each of the three compositions, as selected by the AAFF, will screen at the 48th Ann Arbor Film Festival on Sunday evening, March 28, 2010. The final overall best rated piece will be performed live by the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra on April 24, 2010 with the video projected simultaneously on the big screen at the historic Michigan Theater.
To enter, please download one of the audio compositions below and create a new video piece inspired by the musical score. All entries must be sent to the AAFF office on DVD and postmarked by February 10, 2010 (must arrive in office by February 17 for consideration). Videos that sample or remix compositions will not receive consideration for the final A2SO performance. There is no submission fee to enter the Sight & Sound competition.
