Stones Throw Entertainment Video Contest

Stones Throw Records are putting on a comp that’s sure to be a hit with some of you budding video directors out there. To celebrate their 15th anniversary, they’re throwing a video competition, and the rules are simple: Pick any song from Stones Throw’s catalog, create a video, and add it to their Vimeo group. Peanut Butter Wolf will be judging, and the winner will get $1000, $200 for and the chance to direct an upcoming video. Deadline is July 1, 2011.

This year is our 15 year anniversary and I wanted to do something special, something that involves the fans directly…. Looking back on the 15 years of the label, a lot of my favorite songs don’t have a video. We generally only do one video per artist album and in some cases, we didn’t do any (Donuts)… The Quasimoto ”Shadows of Tomorrow” video was so good, we put it on our DVD. Using all found-footage, it was more interesting than most videos on that DVD that featured the artist. Thankfully the director/editor of that one reached out and identified himself as Duey FM and he’s been making videos for Mad Decent and others ever since. – Peanut Butter Wolf
