3lau – ‘Bang’

Born Justin Blau, 3LAU is taking the electronic music scene by storm and is now giving you an amazing opportunity to make the official music video for his new release Bang.

“The video should be a complete twist on the intended meaning of the track to keep it interesting, unlike your standard club / party scene video, which has been done 5 million times before.”

Alter Bridge ‘Cry of Achilles’ Results

We heard that the boys from Alter Bridge each had their own favourite submissions in our Cry of Achilles project, but a decision has been reached.

Congratulations to Simon Ralph and Lee Parker of SiLee Films! These guys receive $7,000 for their winning animation, which has been selected as the official music video for ‘Cry of Achilles‘. This is the second video from the UK’s SiLee Films, who joined Genero earlier this year, contributing another beautiful animation to our project with Hannah Ild.

There was some serious competition for this project, and so we also want to give a very special congratulations to Micah Buzan for his incredible hand drawn animation for the track, which was selected as Staff Pick and Finalist.

A big thanks to everyone who took part in both of our Alter Bridge projects, and of course congratulations to our wider Finalist group: (United States) Staff Pick  - Alex and Ol (Belgium)  - I’M PLAYTOY (Italy) mm (Italy) (France) Moon (Spain) (United States) (Mexico)

You can watch all the submissions here, or catch up on the results from our other Alter Bridge project here.

Exploring the USA

There are over 15,000 Genero members based in the USA, so we’d like to wish all our American filmmakers a Happy Independence Day!

Things would be pretty different if England were still in control, and we have America to thank for inventions such as the cheeseburger, Bruce Springsteen and Shark Week, so we thought we better celebrate the 4th July by sharing some of our favourite stories from across the country.

We were captivated by the submissons for our Storytellers project, so to celebrate our friends in the United States, we’ve put together a playlist of videos set across the country. From California to Florida and even the not-so-official State of Jefferson, these videos capture some unique people, places and stories across the home of the brave and the land of the free.

So sit back, relax, and explore the USA:
