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!)

Help Wanted

On August 6, 2010, in Future Boy, News, Shows, Street Team, by Tree

We’ll be needing some dedicated fans in the UK really soon to help spread the word about Future Boy. In exchange for your hard work you’ll have access to team exclusives including rare music, photos, and merchandise!  If you’re interested please send us a message on Twitter telling us your nearest major UK city so we know which territory you can help cover. You can find us at www.twitter.com/teamfutureboy

For fans living in the rest of the world, YOU AREN’T BEING LEFT OUT! We will have plenty of opportunities for fans, all over the world, to help out via the internet and in person in their home towns, if they want to. Right now, we specifically need some help in the UK for an upcoming tour, but we will soon be posting ways other fans worldwide can help. Future Boy loves ALL of his fans and appreciates help from each and every one of them, no matter where they live! :)

Thank you for your support!

Team Future Boy has a new mission for you dedicated Future Boy fans. You can do this mission from ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD and every single contribution from fans will matter!

We all love Future Boy music (I’m assuming you do too, or yo a u wouldn’t be on this site!!) and we all know how great Volume 1 is. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people out there that don’t even know that Future Boy exists because they find out about all of their new music through the radio. We, here at Team Future Boy, think it is sad that there are so many people missing out! This is where we need the help of the fans! We want to get Future Boy played on the radio. Now, it would be great if you all wrote, emailed, or called your favorite radio station and let them know that you would like to hear Future Boy on the radio. In order to make the biggest impact and to make our message heard, we would like to also focus on one radio station, one DJ, and one Future Boy song. We need to make out shout LOUD AND CLEAR. So, here is your mission, dedicated Future Boy fans:

Send letters and postcards to SCOTT MILLS and ask him to play STEP BY STEP on his BBC Radio 1 show!!  Usually Scott doesn’t play requests but as a past fan of Busted and a supporter of great new music, we just know that Scott will listen if hundreds of people let him know they want to hear “Step By Step” on the radio!

Letters should be addressed to:

Scott Mills
BBC Radio 1
Yalding House,
Great Portland Street, London W1N 4DJ

You can also email Scott at scott.mills@bbc.co.uk

and send him a tweet on Twitter @Scott_Mills  ( www.twitter.com/scott_mills )

Performance in the UK!

On July 26, 2010, in Future Boy, James Bourne, Music, News, Shows, by Tree

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!
