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!
