The new Nine Inch Nails album may have just been launched onto the world, but Trent Reznor is moving fast with the newly anounced Nine Inch Nails Ghosts Film Festival that encourages people to develop their own videos for any of the songs on Ghosts and post them online in an open film festival.
"Take the music of Ghosts, and marry it up with the visions that you think are appropriate," said Trent in the opening announcement (see video above).
The idea is to create an online collaboration in which people can create music videos or films and submit them to the festival. Qualified entries will then make it to the festival itself. Trent mentions in his opening statement video that they'll be curating the videos (presumably including Alessandro Cortini and Josh Freese), so that the best of the best will make it into the festival.
"To expand the idea of the "Ghosts" project, Nine Inch Nails is inviting anyone and everyone to create visuals to accompany the album's music. In a few months, we'll be gathering the entries we feel are particularly exceptional and highlighting them. There are no rules to this - be as creative as you like. Create a music video, or a short film, or something completely abstract. Use only one track from the album, or use multiple tracks," reads the announcement on the film festival home page.
