That’s a wrap! Our first annual Musicbed Film Fest turned out better than we hoped: 1,900+ films, 66,000+ voters, and more than a quarter of a million visitors from 206 countries around the world. We are thrilled to be part of such a prolific community producing such high-quality work.
When you think about it, filmmaking and music making aren’t all that different. The processes used to create songs and films are actually crazy similar. Slaving for hours over a lyric, tweaking a treatment for the umpteenth time, setting mics, setting lights, on and on. But maybe it’s not so much about the art forms themselves, but the humans behind them that make them so similar. In both contexts, it’s makers pursuing a vision and wringing out their hearts and hands to see it realized.
