Open Call: 26.500 Euros for rock concert visuals

LOOKING FOR INNOVATIVE EXPERIMENTS: ANIMATION-BASED VISUALS FOR A LIVE CONCERT WITH DANISH ROCK BAND MAGTENS KORRIDORER.

As part of the Viborg Animation Festival 2014, October 3rd – 5th (more on the 2012 edition here: www.animationsfestival.dk), a concert performance with Danish rock favorites Magtens Korridorer and animation-based visuals will take place in Denmark, specifically at Viborg venue Paletten.

We’re looking for a different kind of live music experience, one that plays around with the relationship between music, band, visuals and/or audience. And since we'd like to encourage new talents to pitch in with ideas, we've decided to do it by putting out an open call.

Your job will be to come up with an innovative and interesting concept for the visuals, which can be executed within a budget of 200.000 Danish Crowns (a little over 26.500 euros). Everything from projection mapping to inflatable dolls may be incorporated – the only requirement is that a not insubstantial amount of the 200.000 must be set aside for animated visuals and that these will be produced in the Viborg animation cluster Arsenalet (www.arsenalet.dk).

Magtens Korridorer will be allowed to use elements of the visuals for a music video and to incorporate them on their winter tour 2014/15. Any further use must be cleared with you and Viborg Animation Festival.

We’d love to hear your ideas! Send a project pitch and an estimated budget for the concert visuals to elab@via.dk before April 25th.
