We have the music, now you make the film
The entries have now closed for the BBC New Music Shorts scheme.
BBC Electric Proms have announced the commissions for this year's New Music Shorts which will be launched at the festival.
Three short films inspired by tracks from Roots Manuva, XX Teens and Wild Beasts were commissioned based on the originality and strength of their idea. Each filmmaker is working with Warp Films to produce their shorts on budgets of £5,000.
