We’re teaming up with 105.5 The Colorado Sound to present the fourth year of the 53:14 Music Video Experiment!

The 53:14 Music Video Experiment gives filmmakers and musicians a limited window (53 hours and 14 minutes) to conceive, shoot, edit and delivery an original music video. Similar to a 48 Hour Film Festival, this experiment comes with a catch. Filmmakers and musicians won’t know who they are working with until Kickoff on August 27, 2021. During that event, filmmaker teams and bands/musicians will be randomly paired up and sent off to create their original music video in just over 2 days.

To help with this project, we’re providing each team with a budget of $1000 to use for whatever you need to bring your vision to life. The videos will then premiere at the outdoor screen at The Lyric during a special event on September 3, 2021. Videos will then receive additional distribution opportunities through 105.5 The Colorado Sound and other partners we are lining up!

The 53:14 is made possible thanks to support from 105.5 The Colorado Sound and MUSE, a responsive, competitive grant program offered by the Bohemian Foundation that provides support to organizations that have music as their primary focus, or that have a music-centered program.
