The Be Project is a new national competition which asks young Aussies to produce an inspirational song or action sports film with the aim of forming a collective voice challenging Aussie binge drinking culture.
Hip hop artist PEZ is encouraging young Aussies to get involved. Having seen the effects that alcohol can have on budding musicians, he’s passionate about musos fulfilling their potential without succumbing to the pressures of binge drinking and ugliness that comes with it.
Footage of the amateur filmmaker’s category will have their clips mashed together and played over the soundtrack of the winning song to produce an inspirational music video – developed by young people for young people. The ten best action sports clips will win a handheld action camera so they can continue to capture amazing action sports moments with their friends. The winner of the music category (best track) will win a trip to Melbourne where they’ll have their song professionally recorded by one of Australia’s leading producers, a professional music industry mentorship and a Macbook Pro so that they can continue recording tracks at home.
Some pretty sweet prizes there.
