Elton John wants to give you the chance to direct a music video for him. Elton John: The Cut, in partnership with YouTube, wants you to make a music video for one of Elton John's classic songs in this content for undiscovered filmmakers.
The contest is looking for you to make a video for one of three Elton songs (or all three) and do each in a specific style. The songs are: Rocket Man (animation), Tiny Dancer (Live Action), and Benny & The Jets (Choreography).
Music videos are great ways to test your video skills and build new ones. Bands are constantly looking for music videos, for someone to make them for them, and to do them for cheap. This is one of the best ways to establish yourself in video and get some good pay along the way. Getting your first gig is the hardest part, so use this contest to show off your skills! If you need a crash course on making music videos, check out our course on the subject here.
