It’s time for another Future8 update, and things are getting serious!

Last week we announced that the awesome WeMo Maker from Belkin International are our Maker Category sponsor. To catch up on all the info and news on the prize, click here.

This week we have even more exciting news: we’ve teamed up with the creative people over at Sony Music to bring you an AMAZING prize for the Online Video Category. This prize is beyond awesome and completely exclusive. The best young video director we find will assist on a music video shoot with Sony Music’s Head of Video, Mike O’Keefe!

This is a seriously big deal – Sony Music are one of the biggest record labels in the world and have a huge amount of expertise in video content creation, not to mention the huge musical talent they work with.

Mike shares his excitement at being involved in the awards: “New talent is the Lifeblood of creative industries. We have entered an age of unparalleled freedom to create and self publish, it’s new and exciting for us but is already the norm for a new generation. We are about to see colossal upheaval in the way media and entertainment are created and consumed. Prizes like this are a glimpse into the future where we hope to meet with the people who will go and change everything.”

If you haven’t registered for this category, this is the time to do it – don’t miss out! You never know which star you could be in the studio with.
