Hello Future Boy fans!  A new Future Boy competition is open and this one is the best one yet!

Have you ever wanted to be in a music video? Do you love Future Boy music so much that you feel like you have to get up and dance every time it plays? If you answered “yes!” to both of these questions, then we have the contest for you! Future Boy is making a video for his song “You Can Dance” and wants to include fans in the finished product! The video will appear on the official Future Boy website, on the official Future Boy YouTube channel, and may even appear on iTunes and other music video sites! Interested? Here’s how you enter:

We need a video of you dancing to Future Boy’s song “You Can Dance.” No other music should feature in the video. No logos should appear in the video, especially on your clothing. The camera should be still (on a tripod or level surface, or held firmly by someone but in a single position – No panning shots. No close-ups. No zooming in and out.) Please limit your video to 30 seconds. You can have as many people in your video as you like, as long as you have permission from every participant that appears and their acceptance of the contest terms and conditions as well. Videos should be in interesting places. Videos of interest to the production staff are videos that include local landmarks, interesting people, and lots of enthusiasm in the dancing.  You could have big landmarks in your video if these are close to you or if you are travelling there anyway (Big Ben, the Pyramids, the Eiffel Tower) but we are also looking for more unique local landmarks and beautiful scenic locations (near lakes, rivers, mountains etc.). Pick a place that is special to you that you want to share with the world! We would like a large selection of locations from around the world and encourage everyone everywhere to enter! We want fans of all ages, all shapes and sizes, all origins. Future Boy loves ALL of his fans and wants the video to reflect this by showing as large a sampling of fans as possible.

Please do not upload your video to any video sharing sites like YouTube, Facebook, Myspace, etc. Doing so may exclude your entry from consideration! Future Boy and Team Future Boy would like to have a final video that is a surprise and something new to fans when it is first unveiled!

Videos should be attached to an email and sent to youcandance@futureboy.com

Your email should include:

  • your full name
  • the names of all of the participants in your video
  • the location your video was shot in (city, state, country)
  • be sent from a valid email address that can receive emails (in case you are selected!)
  • must include the terms and conditions acceptance phrase:

Banner contest!!

On June 12, 2010, in Contests, Future Boy, by Tree

Our second contest is still going on! This time we have asked Future Boy fans to make their own Future Boy banners and post them on the web. This contest is SUPER EASY!! You can use pictures of James Bourne, your own artwork, or even just words. They can be static (a non-moving picture) or animated. Get creative and have fun!! Banners should be posted where other people can see them (so don’t hide them on a private journal page) and should link to the official Future Boy download site at www.futureboy.com  You can make as many banners as you want. Just make sure you don’t take down any old ones. Just keep adding new banners to new pages. Share them on photo sharing websites, post them on your favorite social networking site, put them on your blog or personal web page. Spread the word!

Remember to send the team your links (to the pages that you put the banners on) either in comments on this post, comments on the contest announcement post, as a DM on Twitter, a message on our myspace, or via email. We won’t know you entered if you don’t tell us!

Thank you for supporting Future Boy music!

We have a competition winner!

Congratulations Sheyla L. Anandita Ashari

Sheyla did an AWESOME job of posting links all over the internet, spreading the word about Future Boy, and telling friends about the upcoming release on June 3! It was such a great effort that when I informed James of all of the hard work she put into spreading the word, he said he would like to thank her personally! Sheyla, get ready for a video chat with James Bourne! You deserve it!

A BIG THANK YOU

On May 26, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Tree

We would like to thank each of you who went to the effort of posting links for the contest. We appreciate the support and, of course, so does James Bourne. No matter how good a musician is, nobody is going to hear the music if they don’t know it is out there. Musicians depend on the fans to spread the word and they truly appreciate the efforts of every single fan. Thank you for posting links and telling your friends about Future Boy! The more we get the word out there the more Future Boy can do. Want to see more shows? Tours? Get more people to support and spread the word! Even though Team Contest #1 is over, we still need your help to continue spreading the word. Please keep posting those links and telling the world about Future Boy! We will have more contests and goodies for Future Boy supporters coming up soon!

Last Day!

On May 24, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Tree

Last day of the Team Future Boy contest! Keep posting those links and reporting them back to us to make sure your contest entry is received!

We need more entries!

On May 21, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Tree

UPDATE ON THE CONTEST!! Right now it is still really easy to win the contest http://teamfutureboy.com/2010/05/street-team-contest-contest-mission-1/ as no entrant has submitted more than 5 points! Five points is ridiculously easy to achieve! Here at the street team, we LOVE that so many people are willing to post one or two links on the internet, but it will only take a little more than that, right now, to win the prize! Could you really forgive yourself if you missed the opportunity to win a brand new silver 8GB iPod when all you have to do is type a few lines on the computer?!? You don’t have to buy anything. You don’t have to sell anything. All you have to do is go out on the internet, on the sites you already go to, talk to the people you already talk to and post simple links and banners. It’s really easy!  Verification is easy too! For example, if you posted your link on the TeamFutureBoy myspace page then you would just send us an email that says: “text link  on www.myspace.com/TeamFutureBoy”  That’s it! Every time you post a link or a banner, just send us another email and tell us where to find that link or banner so we can verify it is there! Don’t let that iPod get away!
