Music Video Competition ceremony Nov. 19

By Rebecca Howard

Come watch original music videos created, choreographed and edited by CSU students in the first-ever Music Video Competition and find out who will win "Best Video at CSU." This event is sponsored by ASAP.

CSU's got talent

This Thursday night, students can enjoy a showcase of music videos featuring original costumes, choreography and most importantly, creative flair. But this isn’t MTV. It’s the first-ever Music Video Competition, sponsored by ASAP.

CSU students submitted original music videos that they directed, filmed and edited themselves, and now everyone has the opportunity to attend the screening and award ceremony on Thursday, Nov. 19.

According to Stephanie Corder, the film coordinator for ASAP, this event was created in order to give CSU students the opportunity to get creative and shine.

“We wanted to give students a chance to direct their own film and get recognized for their talents on the big screen,” she said.

Multiple awards

In order to submit, students, using their own camera and equipment, were to create a music video under three minutes in length. While entries are required to keep it clean, as videos with “obscene content” are automatically disqualified, there are no other restrictions, allowing creative freedom.

The videos will be critiqued by two judges, after which multiple awards will be given. The categories are:

  • Best Costume
  • Best Dance
  • Best Editing
  • Best Comedic Performance
  • Best Video at CSU

The award for best video at CSU will be given based on which video had the best overall performance across all categories.

Corder said that she doesn’t know exactly what to expect from the submissions, as the event is new. However, she expects the event to be a great showcase of the students’ talent.

“I think people will be able to appreciate how talented their peers are,” she said. “This competition leaves for a lot of room to shine in many different talent categories.”

The music video screening and award ceremony will take place on Thursday, Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. in the Lory Student Center Theatre. This free event is open to all CSU students and the community.
