When one creative community connects with another creative community, great things can happen. But locating the tools and resources to produce those great things can be tricky. CoBALT Connects wants to help local teams of bands/musicians and media artists overcome this obstacle with its latest initiative, BAND TOGETHER.
Selected teams receive $1000 to rent equipment, book locations, pay other professionals, etc., access to planning resources, and a promotional kick-start to launch the final music video product.
Submissions for consideration are due by November 9th, 2012.
