What was on offer?

We partnered with Domino Records, 679 Recordings, Ninja and Warp Records, who provided some of their latest release tracks, and Warp Films who will help the winners produce their films.

The five winners have now had their short films made with a budget of up to £5,000. The films have been shown at the BBC Electric Proms and are viewable online on the BBC Film Network site.

Ten short listed candidates also got a one day development workshop throughout the selection process.

You can also find out more about the labels, get some words of advice from Warp Films Managing Director, Mark Herbert, or get Film Network's New Music Shorts information.
