Watch cool videos, win amazing tickets!

Check out the films from the 2008 Beats Per Minute Filmmaking Competition! We are in the process of uploading the films to the Filmmaking Frenzy website. But you can see them all, loud and proud at the Alamo Ritz on Monday and Tuesday (same program both nights).

BPM is a 48 Hour filmmaking competition that we have hosted at the Alamo for the past 3 years. This year, we have teamed up with Red Bull for the event. They are throwing a big party during SXSW with some of the best bands around, local and national. Teams were given 48 hours to conceive, shoot and edit a music video for one of the artists playing at the Red Bull Moon Tower party. The videos will be screened in-between sets at the Red Bull Moon Tower and we'll be announcing the winners at 9:30 PM on the opening Wednesday of the party.

Grand prize for this Frenzy is an AMD-based Dell laptop loaded up by Guitar Center with a music editing package, second prize is an AMD-based Dell laptop and third prize is an Epiphone guitar provided by Gibson.

The 12 finalists will be determined from the online and in-theater voting. The 1st, 2nd and place videos will be chosen by Wiley Wiggins, star of Dazed and Confused, the inspiration behind the Red Bull Moon Tower party.

If you don't want to watch the videos online, you can cast your vote for all of the films at the Alamo Ritz on Monday and Tuesday.

We'll also be giving away a pair of 4-day tickets to the Red Bull Moon Tower at each of the screenings. This party is not open to the public and if you know anything about Red Bull, this is going to be THE party to get into this year.
