Are You the Next David Fincher?
Lord, I hope not. Dude couldn't direct a used car ad well.*
But if you do fancy yourself a music video maker, perhaps this Asylum Street Spankers contest is for you:
Make and submit a video for any track on our new family-oriented album,"Mommy Says No!" and if we think yours is the rockingest, we'll award you $1000 and it will become the Spankers offical new video and be promoted nationwide.
We're looking for a creative vision that entertains and delights both kids and grownups, so keep that in mind. Funny is good. Sweet can be nice too. Touch us, make us laugh, blow our minds. Animate, dance, psychedelize, literalize, visualize world Spanks!
Please pass this along to friends, and post it on networking websites and filmmaker forums. Thanks for helping us get the word out.
the simple rules:
1. All submissions become exclusive property of Spanks-a-Lot Records and our use may include, but not be limited to, uploading on video sharing sites and podcasting.

* Okay, Fincher's not that terrible. His movies at least look good, and sometimes are decent. Maybe there's a better music video maker turned film director I should be using as an example. But I can't think of one off-hand. Maybe McG? Was he a music video maker? I can't be bothered to do actual research, apparently.
