Check out our new homemade video for "Long Shadows"! Imagined by Sam Kassirer of the Royal City Band, we filmed this video on a day off from tour back in August and finally get to share it with you.
To mark the video's release as well as Josh's upcoming US/Canada tour we'd like to invite you to make your own video for "Long Shadows"!
Download the song here (bit.ly/c77iPR) and go out and create your own "one-shot" video! Upload your finished videos here on Vimeo and tag them with "JoshRitterLongShadows". Then email us a link to your video at email@example.com All submissions are due by Thursday October 21, 2010. Josh & The Royal City Band will view all submissions and pick their favorites.
We'd prefer your submission to be a "one-shot" video like ours. There's no cuts or edits of any kind. It took a few rehearsals, but we finally nailed it. We'd also like to point out that we're looking for the most creative video, not the most fancy or technically skilled. We shot ours on an iPhone!
The Top 3 winners, hand selected by Josh & The Royal City Band, will win tickets to any one future Josh Ritter show. And the top video will also win a signed merch package and front page placement of your video on joshritter.com for a week!
"Long Shadows" will be featured on this Sunday's (October 10) episode of "Bored To Death" on HBO. Dates, tickets, and info for Josh Ritter's US/Canada tour, his last tour dates for 2010, can be found at joshritter.com/shows Good luck and we'll see you on the road!
