As you can see here on our website, Scifidelic is an alternative rock band known for hard-driving, dance-driven, post-industrial instrumental and electronica hybrid sound. Emotional, deep, thought-provoking lyrics bring otherworldly sounds to a new height. And the live performances take the music to an even higher level.
Most of our videos follow a thought-provoking and artistic storyline. Click Here to view the current videos. We are now ready for something new, exciting, unique, creative and unforgettable. And that is where your video comes into play! Young, creative minds coming unleashed on the music world inspired by the music of Scifidelic!
We will provide you with a folder of twenty of Scifidelic's songs. Select the song you would like to use. This song must play in its entirety, uncut, through the length of the video. Some of these songs already have videos, so feel free to upstage Scifidelic and make a better one! Others do not yet have videos. We will provide you with a general story line. However, it is not necessary to follow our storyline. Come up with your own based on the song you select, or continue the story in your own fashion. It's entirely up to you and your team.
This is to be a music video and should be no longer than 30 seconds longer than the length of the song. All ideas and content must be original, created by your group and cannot be plagiarized. The song you select cannot be remixed and must stay in its original format. Judging will be based on quality, creativity, uniqueness, visual appeal, artistic merit, memorable and marketability. Have fun with it! Sexy, interesting, weird, bizarre, eclectic, mindful... take it in whatever direction you would like. But keep it at least PG-13 and, of course, very, very cool. We are looking for something creative that will stand out amongst the crowd!
