Music Video Production Program
Learn to make magic on screen!
This grant supports emerging Saskatchewan filmmakers with the production of a music video for a Saskatchewan musician at any stage of their career.
Filmmakers will be paired with a mentor throughout the music video production process, and both parties will participate in professional development workshops. Successful filmmaker grant recipients will gain experience and knowledge in:
Shot list and storyboard development
Production budgeting and scheduling
Navigating production agreements
Rough cuts vs. fine cuts
Both parties (musicians and filmmakers) will have a completed music video to add to their professional portfolio, however the musicians will maintain ownership of the finished project.
Project expenses are 100% covered by Creative Saskatchewan, to a maximum of $7,500.
Opening date: September 13, 2022
Deadline to apply: November 25, 2022 at 4:00 PM CST

Music Video Production - What's Changed?
1 - The filmmaker secures the musician
The filmmaker must partner in advance of the application with a Saskatchewan musician. The filmmaker will be the applicant and the main contact for our application process from start to finish. Musicians must be a signatory on the funding agreement if granted.
2 - Creative Saskatchewan working to build the talent pool of emerging filmmakers
This means we’re looking for NEW collaborations.
Not sure who to approach? Stay tuned for resources!
Already an established filmmaker? Many musicians receive funding from Creative Saskatchewan’s Market & Export Development Grant for music video production. So be sure to encourage the Saskatchewan musicians you work with to apply to the program!
