Ever wanted to make a music video?  Now’s your chance as Bestival organiser Rob Da Bank’s Music Club will be working to create a music video for a band signed to Rob’s own Sunday Best record label!

The Music Club are wanting youngsters aged 13-18 to film or create something around the theme of “What the Isle of Wight means to me.”

Film it on absolutely anything at all; your mobile phone, your iPod, a video camera, your digital camera.  Maybe you’d like to do a time lapse with some stills, maybe you’d like to make a stop motion animation.  The label will use WHATEVER you produce; photos, paintings, cartoons, animations, clips, sketches, films, doodles animations.  The only catch is, it needs to be created by you, and needs to show the world what the Island means to you.  Entries are needed by the end of June’s Music Club.

This month’s Music Club sees Emmy J Mac & Buddy Carson return with their amazing Stand Up For Lyricism Workshop:  so Singers, Writers, Rappers, Spoken Word artistes, if you’ve got something to say and want to be heard, they will be putting together a performance for the radio-session so bring any words you have (or just your voice).

As Rob da Bank says:  “My Music Club is the place to be on the Isle of Wight if you want to get into music – it’s that simple. Be there!”
