Platinum-plus-selling Epic recording artists Chevelle and master of horror Wes Craven are teaming up to find fresh blood with The Hills Have Eyes 2/ “15 Gigs of Fear” contest, an open call for fans to cut their own video for the band’s new single, “Well Enough Alone.”
Entrants can register at foxatomic.com, where they’ll have exclusive access to footage from Craven’s The Hills Have Eyes and upcoming sequel The Hills Have Eyes 2. With The Blender, a web editing tool on foxatomic.com, users can create their videos by mashing up clips from the movies, as well as their own uploaded content.
The winner will be chosen by Craven from the 20 highest-rated finalists based on peer voting. The grand prize winner scores $3500 and a trip to Los Angeles to meet with Fox Atomic studio executives to pitch a movie idea.
