Artists’ Association MUU:
PERFORMANCE VOYAGE 8
A Series of international Video Performances

Nettibanneri_Voyage 8_versio1

Theme:
Code: LGBT+

Application deadline: 20 October 2018!

Artists’ Association MUU invites artists to participate in Performance Voyage 8, a collection of video performances, and to explore the passion of the LGBT+ community, existing regardless of historical times, geographical location, political system or tradition, universally longing for acceptance and acknowledgement.

The relentless battle for human rights has survived violence and persecution, and the impetuous passion has broken the silence, but is it enough?

PV8 open call mainly focuses on LGBT+ but invites all artists.

The open call for the Performance Voyage 8 selection is for recent video works, preferably 1–5 minutes in duration (max. 10 min.). Only submit edited footage – unedited raw footage will be rejected.

The videos will be showcased as a compilation on a worldwide tour in screening events. The compilation will be presented worldwide in 2019. Note: no videos will be installed or exhibited separately during the tour.

The jury will be announced later.

Online application form HERE

The maximum allowed duration of the videos is 10 minutes. Each submission must include the name of the artist, the title of the performance, the duration of the video and, where appropriate, also information about where, how and when the original performance took place.

Selected artists will be contacted by email late 2018. We will answer all the applicants.

Video formats:

We specially ask you to send us URL link for the video work! If this is not possible it is also possible as seconf option to send us physical copy of the video file.

There is such a range of digital formats today that this can be a bit complicated. Ideally we want to get the best quality video possible – particularly if the video was shot in High Definition. Here are a few key requirements: Firstly and most importantly, all videos must be in PAL format (25 frames/sec)!

If the original video is in standard definition (SD), a good option is to send it to us on mini DV tape. You can also export the video as an AVI or Quicktime standard definition DV file and send it to us on a DVD data disk.

If the original video was shot in 16:9 (widescreen format), please export the video with a 16:9 aspect ratio – do not convert it to 4:3 (letterbox) format.

If the original was shot in a High Definition format, we recommend that you send us a copy of the video exported into a HD file format and burned as a data file on a DVD data disk. Alternatively, you can send us a download link to the file.

There are many different HD video codecs in use today. We recommend exporting the edited video using either the MP4 or H.264 codec. Export the video with a 1080p or 720p frame size and use a relatively high data rate. A 10 minute video with a high bit rate should fit onto a 4 GB DVD.

You can also upload the video to MUU’s server. You will need an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client that will transfer your files (video, image, sound) via Internet to our server. For that, you need the recipient’s FTP address (and password, if necessary). FTP requires a fixed broadband connection. Uploading large files, such as videos, is slow and difficult with mobile broadband. For instructions on FTP submission of your video, contact MUU by email muugalleria(a)muu.fi

Before sending us your video, please try playing it in a VLC player (www.videolan.org/vlc). If you can play it in VLC, there is a good chance we will be able to play the video as well.
