A Word About Music Video Asheville Sponsors:

***
What is FoAM?
FoAM, Future of Asheville Music, began in December 2006 as an initial gathering of about 70 local Buncombe County musicians at the Asheville Area Arts Council. The goal was to start a networking/professional development group of musicians to support Asheville music. From that meeting came a number of ideas from marketing Asheville as the national music city that it is to generating more support for individual musicians at local venues, to providing opportunities for musicians to network. Developed by the FoAM Core, a play on the traditional steering committee, the FoAM mission is to promote and support Asheville area-based musicians through advocacy, networking, and education. Music Video Asheville is one way FoAM meets that mission. Please email foam@futureofashevillemusic.com for more info.

Music Video Asheville is Wednesday March 10th at the Cinebarre! The show starts at 6pm. Plan to arrive early to get your seats and be there when the videos begins! There are  35 videos to check out with with a brief intermission to network. Cinebarre will also be selling food, sodas, beer and of course popcorn!  If you have not purchased a ticket yet, Cinebarre will be the only outlet that will have any the day of the event. Seating is limited.  Find out what musicians and filmmakers submitted here.

Here is a letter we just received from filmmaker Margaret Lauzon with Villasonica about Music Video Asheville and the Moog Documentary that they submitted…

Music Video Asheville, now in its third year, is a local music video screening held annually at Cinebarre behind the Biltmore Square Mall in Asheville, NC. The event showcases area musicians by screening a wide variety of music video submissions. MVA 2010 takes place at Cinebarre on Wednesday, March 10 at 6 PM.

Villasonica, along with other regional creative professionals including Jenny Greer (of Jen & the Juice and Sound Mind Media), Echo Mountain, The Asheville Area Arts Council, Cinebarre and POPA, among others, created this event several years ago in response to area artists’ interest in music as it relates to film. This collective operates under the name FoAM, Future of Asheville Music.

This FoAM event is special because it calls together many styles of music and many tiers of video experience all aimed at bringing the music and film community together for one night.

Villasonica and Studio South Co-produced a short movie with The Bob Moog Foundation and Flying Pig Studios. It features musicians, Toubab Krewe, and will be screened among the local music videos, as will pieces from POP Asheville 2009 Produced by Ellen Pfirrmann of Studio South and Eljapa Media with Stephanie Morgan, representing the Creative Commerce Commission.

We may also be seeing a submission from Hatch 2009 produced by Dave Bragg of Flying Pig Studios, The Daytrotter Blog and Villasonica featuring the Echo Mountain API Studio. HD camera work and production by Shane Peters, Jessica Tomasin and Ryan Grant.

Music Video Asheville is a great opportunity to network with other filmmakers and have fun, and there aren’t many grassroots opportunities to do that while people are traveling for festivals, tours and commercial work.

This is how we kick off Spring! If you are available this week, please come to Cinebarre and celebrate, that is if a damn blizzard doesn’t enter Stage Left 🙂

This event sells out so arrive early or purchase tickets in advance to reserve your spot.

Thanks!
Villasonica
