Here's our first Covid-19-related news round-up, as production companies, labels and freelancers start to adapt to remote working:
Radar Music Videos site launches
RadarMusicVideos.com is designed to give emerging filmmakers the chance to make music videos for unsigned and signed artists. Budgets will be involved for the unsigned band videos.
Unsigned bands can invite pitches on Radar according to their brief and budgets - there has to be a budget of some kind - then get extensive promotion through Radar's networks on YouTube, MySpace and Facebook.
However, Radar is also inviting label commissions via its tried-and-tested Festival model, offering to manage a competition among filmmakers who submit their videos on spec for a certain track according to the label's creative brief.
There are also viral competitions to promote Radar's own services - the first competition is for virals that promote the Unsigned Artists Music Videos service.
Radar is offering free memberships to the first 500 members joining the network, before an annual charge of £10 is levied. About 100 free spaces are still available.
