For the last three years, Australian Musical Comedy group Tripod have ran an annual competition and Melbourne Comedy Festival show known as Idio Clips. The objective of the competition is to create a music video for any song from Tripod’s catalogue. The entries of the competition are then voted on by Tripod themselves, and finalists are chosen to be screened at Tripod’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival show on Sunday 19th April 2009, where they will perform the songs live to the clips as they play on a large screen.
This year, for the first time in the three years the competition has been running, my group of cronies and I are finally removing our posteriors from their respective sitting positions, and creating an Idio Clip entry of our own. Filming has begun last weekend, and should be wrapping up in two weeks time.
Tickets for the Idio Clips show can be purchased online here. We can’t guarantee that we’ll make the finals, but we’re an optimistic bunch.
