Does Dayton talent have the chops for production? Are we a film city? FilmDayton believes the answer is a resounding YES and the original Web series “Freak Club” (shot on location last summer) proves just that.
From the early days when local writers pitched story ideas – to a great pre-production team that scouted locations, created props and determined casting – to the exciting three weeks of on-location shooting that filled the streets of our city with production: it’s been a local endeavor! Now we’re picture locked and ready to take the last step before release – and we need your help!
Let’s keep showcasing regional talent – we’re looking for musicians who want to hear their original compositions as the closing credits roll. Submit your original song for consideration!
Wondering what the ‘feel’ is? Here’s the opening credits!
The story showcases a pair of students and their ‘freakish’ friends as they learn more about their supernatural surroundings and navigate life at a Dayton high school. It’s X-Files with a Mean Girls twist! The closing music can play on any or all of that! Instrumental, vocal, upbeat or eery – it all fits! Want more details – check out the episode summaries below.
Song should be 2 minutes in length or able to be cut to 2 minutes. Submitted songs should not exceed 4 minutes (producer may select appropriate 2 minute section if song is selected). You must fill out the Contest Form to submit and songs will not be considered without a signed form. As this was a volunteer project, there is no pay, but musicians will be credited. Musicians are limited to two (2) entries each; there is no entry fee. Submission deadline: April 22, 2013.
Mail a printed copy of the form and a CD to: FilmDayton: 22 E. Fifth Street, Dayton, OH 45402 RE: Freak Club Closing Credits (CDs will not be returned unless a SASE is included)
