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)

We need more entries!

UPDATE ON THE CONTEST!! Right now it is still really easy to win the contest https://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!
