Exile by Kevin Emerson: Music Video Writing Contest


Our May book of the month Exile by Kevin Emerson is all about a new, young band — and because Kevin can’t just write a book about music, he has to write and perform the ACTUAL music, there are three songs from the book that you can actually listen to.

So for this month’s contest, we want to know what you’d create for a music video for one of the three songs Kevin and his band brought to life from Exile. Don’t worry — you don’t have to make an actual video (but if you do, MAJOR bonus points & we’ll figure out some sort of extra prize).

The Contest

Listen to all three of the songs from Exile here, then pick one to create a music video for:

Submit your music video plans in the form of a mini screenplay/synopsis – describe what the video would entail, and how it would look. Please keep your description between 250-500 words. ***OR*** Create an actual music video, and send us the link to the YouTube or Vimeo video.

Send us your written or video entries using the EXILE Music Video Contest Entry Form.
