Following the release of the instrumental double-cd entitled “Ghosts”, Trent Reznor from NIN is inviting people to create “film clips” that will fit to the music.
Nine Inch Nails is pleased to announce the expansion of the Ghosts project into the visual world.
The band has teamed up with YouTube to host a “film festival” around Ghosts.
The concept is for you to take whatever tracks you feel inspired by and create what you feel should accompany them visually.
You will be able to see all of the submissions, and a team (including Trent) will be sorting through them and setting aside ones they feel are exceptional.
Eventually (within a couple of months?) we hope to present a virtual “film festival” with Trent and some special guests presenting selections of your work.
“This isn’t a contest and you don’t win elaborate prizes – it’s meant to be an experiment in collaboration and a chance for us to interact beyond the typical one-way artist-to-fan relationship.
We’ve discussed some interesting ways this could go, including multiple instalments of the online “film festivals,” to broadcast TV specials, to a one-time live performance of the entire Ghosts record with your visuals involved.
It really depends on how this progresses and develops.
We are all very much looking forward to what you come up with, and hope you enjoy the experience. Visit http://www.youtube.com/ninofficial for information on how to participate”.
Can’t wait to see what people come up with – I might even have a go myself !
