Weekend Challenge: Deluka Music Video

Hey there, my melodious maestros,

This weekend, we've got a super special Challenge — the band Deluka is looking to the Vimeo community for a new music video! They are offering up their song "Dead of Night", off their upcoming EP BONDS, as the inspiration and backing track for a creative creation of your making:

The indie synth band, originally from Birmingham, England and currently living in Los Angeles, collaborated with acclaimed producer Tim Pagnotta (Neon Trees) for BONDS - an artful tapestry of pop, electro, and rock. Their single “Home” premiered with Noisey and is available on iTunes here: bit.ly/1iuscAy

Thanks to Creative Commons, you can download this song and use it in a video for this Challenge. If you're feeling adventurous, take a dive into our lesson archive for some shooting inspiration. I would suggest listening to the song a few times with some blank paper handy for sketching out ideas, perhaps even starting a storyboard to plan your shots in advance. When you've got a track with good rhythm, jump cuts are worth a look. Maybe you'll get psychedelic with some green screen, or tell a story with some photomotion. This is the perfect Challenge to go all out and experiment with that thing you've always wanted to do!


+ Create a video for Deluka's song "Dead of Night"
+ Add this line at the end of your video's description: "Created for the Weekend Challenge: vimeo.com/groups/weekendchallenge"
+ You've got a little extra time this week! Upload and post your video to the Weekend Challenge Group by ***Friday, May 16th, 2014*** at 11:59 PM (EST).

Only videos made specifically for this Challenge will be considered.


+ The winner will receive a badge on their video, and a free Vimeo Plus account for one year! If you're already a Plus member, you'll get another year.
+ The Runners Up will receive an extra 3GB of upload space!

All videos must be approved by the Vimeo Staff before appearing in the Group, so don't worry if your video doesn't show up at first; we'll get to it!

Keep in Touch with Deluka on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and their website.

Hi.. I am an animator, can shoot stuff but of course I work better with my own medium.. would that be accepted? 'cause I can see "Editing - Shooting" and I don't wanna accept a challenge and then be off track with what I'll produce..

Not sure why my video isn't being added to the group. I uploaded it 30 minutes before the deadline. Did I miss something? vimeo.com/95571111

Same here!!! I also uploaded 40min before the deadline and my video is not showing in the group.
Could somebody explain it, please! This is my first time participating in the challenge and I'm afraid of doing something wrong. Thanks!!!
