Make a video for one of three new Moby tracks and you could find yourself featured at the New Director’s Showcase in Cannes!  Here are the details:

This year, as part of The Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, Saatchi & Saatchi partners with Vimeo and Moby to discover yet another unique filmmaking talent, with a Music Video Challenge.

The brief is simple: interpret and bring to life the idea of ‘Hello, Future’ in the form of a fantastic music video for one of Moby’s tracks from his new album, ‘Destroyed’.

The winner will be announced and their video screened at this year’s New Directors’ Showcase in Cannes, as well as on the Vimeo site.

Historically, many featured directors in the Showcase have gone on to seriously successful careers: Tarsem, Michel Gondry, Mark Romanek, Spike Jonze, Ivan Zacharias, Kinka Usher, Danny Kleinman and Jonathan Glazer included.

No pressure.

All the rules for the Moby video contest are posted on Vimeo.  Download the three Moby tracks, pick one, create a masterpiece, and good luck!

Switched at Birth and the End of Life
I'm a big fan of ABC Family's Switched at Birth and have appreciated its complicated characters, honest and heartfelt relationships, and compelling storylines, as well as its unprecedented, in-depth portrayal of the deaf community.

Wish I Was Here
My intention was to review Zach Braff's new film without mentioning the controversy he stirred up in funding it via Kickstarter.  My view was that what mattered was the movie itself, and the kerfluffle over how it was all paid for was beside the point.  But it turns out that it is the point.  "Sc
