Let’s use your riding footage in the upcoming music video!

In preparing for exciting things in the coming year, we’re filming a new music video and, with your help, would love to include your favorite bike ride in the video.  We’re calling for footage that shows “where you’ve been” on your most picturesque rides. Here’s how to help:

Maybe you have footage from an amazing bicycle excursion ready to go.  But if not, strap your camera to the back of your bike or helmet and point it backwards. Start rolling. Then start riding. Try to ride in the middle of the road or path that you are on (BUT BE CAREFUL). And try to make each take as long as you can. 2-3 minutes each is optimal. And most of all, we challenge you to surprise us with the most awesome, idiosyncratic, and dramatic ride-by scenery known to humankind.

Ideas / Thought-starters:
- Lush country road
- Shanti town
- Chinatown
- Concrete jungle
- Dusty desert road
- Small airport runway
- Abandoned city street
- Someplace that reads as Turkish / eastern Mediterranean
- Treelined street
- Road through rolling hills

HOW TO SUBMIT: Quicktime .MOVs are preferred if you can swing it. Send your footage to bensolleebiketour@gmail.com, and include your name, address, and Twitter account or other online URL if you have one so we can give you props! 

You can attach smaller files to your email, but if you have a larger file, consider  posting it to Vimeo and sending us a link (marking the option to allow downloads of the video). Or you can use a file sharing service like YouSendIt to send the file to bensolleebiketour@gmail.com.

Submissions are open now through February 9th!  And we’ll make sure to keep you up-to-date on the video progress through Facebook and Twitter and will drop you a line when the video is released.

LEGAL MUMBO JUMBO: By submitting your video, you give permission to use the footage in a music video, recognize that that video may be distributed or broadcast internationally, and release Ben Sollee and School of Humans, LTD, from all claims and demands arising out of or in connection with the use of your footage in the video.
