"Black Santa" Remix/MTV-style Music Video Contest and Promotion for Second City's New Film BuzzKill Launches Today!
The Second City and the producers of the new feature film BuzzKill today announced that they have teamed up with MyStudio to launch the "Black Santa Remix Contest". Contestants will utilize MyStudio®HD Recording Studios to produce an MTV-style music video of the song "Black Santa" from the movie BuzzKill. The videos will be produced with clips and other elements from the film. BuzzKill is an absurd comedy about a struggling British writer named Ray Wyatt, whose magnum opus, Great Shame, a dark tale about two brothers, abuse, and revenge is rejected by his girlfriend, agent, and every LA studio. But when he decides to write a script called Black Santa, Ray finds overnight success but in an unusual, fateful way.
The contest launched September 14, 2012 and runs through December 14, 2012. Contestants can create their "Black Santa Remix" video at any MyStudio HD Recording studio location. Alternative means of entry can also be found at MyStudio.net under the contest page. The winner of the video contest will be determined by public online voting at www.MyStudio.net and will receive their own copy of BuzzKill on DVD, two (2) roundtrip flights to Chicago, two (2) night hotel accommodations, two (2) tickets and VIP seating to a Second City show and the opportunity to attend a workshop at The Second City's Chicago comedy school with the Co-Writer and Director of BuzzKill and former Second City Alum Steven Kampmann (Back to School, Stealing Home).
BuzzKill is the first motion picture to be branded by The Second City in more than 40 years. Second City launched the contest with a sponsored screening in New York at the Tribeca Screening Room. BuzzKill distributed by Indican Pictures is available now on Blu-ray and DVD.
"We are excited to be involved with this unique music video contest with the legendary Second City," states Anna Madrid, VP of Media & Communications for Studio One Media. "The contest with MyStudio is a real innovative way to create additional awareness and interest for BuzzKill."
"We're thrilled to work with MyStudio on this project. It's an exciting and creative way to engage with our audience," states Andrew Alexander, CEO & Executive Producer, The Second City, Inc.
