THEN READ ON!...

First of all, visit www.myspace.com/enolosthighwaycompetition and check out our fantastic ’teaser’ by LOST HIGHWAY video designer Philip Bussmann. Philip created this short video to give you a unique taste of the kind of experience our production of LOST HIGHWAY will offer audiences. Described by director Diane Paulus as a ’ride’ in which video is ’absolutely integral to the story’, LOST HIGHWAY promises to be a totally unique show not to be missed.

We are already following the production behind the scenes (films go live on Monday 17 March) however, we wanted to open things up and see what kind of inspiration this exceptional show based on an exceptional film would provide for new filmmakers.

We are looking for the best, most exciting, eclectic, original and inspirational pieces of video to accompany Olga Neuwirth’s haunting score. You can download the piece of music we would like you to use at http://enovideo.blip.tv/file/737017/. NB The excerpt begins at 41 seconds into the track and lasts for 78 seconds.

The content of your video is pretty much entirely up to you however, we recommend that you keep these tit bits of information in mind...
* ENO’s production of LOST HIGHWAY is a live experience in a theatre setting, acting as a 3D extension of the film
* the Lynchian nature of the film will, however, be preserved by our operatic adaptation ie. claustrophobia, dislocation, fear, jazz, death, loss

* you MUST use the same section of music as used by Philip Bussmann in his trailer as outlined above and below
