The aim of this Challenge is to demonstrate the incredible power of music! We want you to score a video according to a mood of your choice. You may choose 1–3 moods (specified below).
The winners of this Challenge will gain huge visibility among our clients. We will promote your music as part of our 'Power of Audio' campaign in 2017. The winning entries will help us demonstrate how music can directly impact the mood and unique feel of a product. Your tune will also be available for exclusive licensing by clients.
These are the 3 moods you can choose from:
Melancholy. Aim for a sad mood. The music can reflect feelings like "being lonely in a crowd", "nobody knows my pain", "we've all lost someone", or something similar. Suggested tags: sad, melancholic, depressing, emotional.
Doomsday. Something bad is about to happen! These people may or may not know it, but we are all doomed! For inspiration, play with thoughts like "the virus is spreading, and it's airborn..." or "one of these people is a killer...". Suggested tags: dark, dangerous, ominous, scary.
Optimistic. The music should make you feel like anything is possible, and it's going to be a great day! Please aim for a genuinely happy feeling. Suggested tags: carefree, happy, optimistic, joyful, positive.
You may submit 1–3 entries in 1–3 moods. Note that you are not guaranteed to score higher by submitting many different moods, so please stick to what you know best. In other words: quality before quantity! The most important thing is that you really capture the essence of the mood(s) you choose. There shouldn't be much room for interpretation. High production value is crucial, so please avoid any cheap, generic sounds. Please specify the mood of your choice in the entry title.
Please download the video 'People' and compose your tune to it. When you upload your entry, your music will be instantly synced to the video online.
For inspiration you can also check out the reference videos to get a little taste of 'the power of music'.
Just like in the reference video, we will edit together the different moods. IMPORTANT! That's why your compositions need to be 20–23 s. long (because the original video file is 25 s., and we need a short breather between each mood).
The best of the winning entries will gain extra visibility among our clients.
