Steven "PhillyFlyBoy" Philip is an acclaimed music video director, editor, and DP whose clients span Snoop Dogg, T.I., Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Gucci Mane, and many more. Last year, over 25 of his videos aired on major networks such as MTV, BET, and Bravo, acquiring millions of views and solidifying his reputation as a creative master.
COLLECTIVE and Philly have teamed up to bring you the Music Video Challenge. Your job? To create a 60-second music video treatment based on the not-yet-released track M.I.A. by Hawaiian rapper and R&B artist Corey Pieper. We’re equipping you with the track itself and performance footage of Corey—your challenge is to select some of that footage along with a 60-second clip from the audio and weave these ingredients into your own b-roll to create the M.I.A storyline or vibey edit. Whichever way you want to take it—get creative, be original, and have fun!
As for the winner, here’s where it gets really good. First, there’s over $10K in gear and prizes to be had. Next—working with Philly and Corey, you’ll collaborate, co-direct, and help publicly launch the full-length music video using your original concept as the creative inspiration. Wondering what kind of audience awaits? Corey has been featured by MTV, BET, and Bravo and has shared the stage with G-Eazy, Nick Cannon, O.T. Genasis, Ace Hood, Ginuwine, and more.
In other words, the winner, consider your work exposed.
Are you ready for this? Let’s do it.
