Introducing 2Weeks2Make It Midlands 2017
After 9 successful outings in Sheffield, The Producers’ Forum is bringing the country’s best music video competition back to the Midlands.

What is it?
2Weeks2MakeIt Midlands 2017 is an original music video competition where filmmakers get randomly paired up with a musician or band and given exactly two weeks to make a music video, from start to finish. No one knows who they’re working with in advance; instead they get to come to an exciting Launch Event, with experienced guest speakers that will furnish all participants with the training and tips they will need to make their video the best it can be. Following completion of their video, all successful teams are invited to a Gala Competition Screening, where they’ll have their video screened to a live audience, and where prizes will be awarded by a panel of experienced judges.
