TurnStyle Films and Cellar Door present the “Assemble Your Army” Free Music Video Contest

If you’re into local music, chances are you’ve already seen the music videography work of TurnStyle Films; whether it be Two Hand Fools ripping through a set at the legendary Dag House, hip-hop duo Smoke Screen morphing into one super-humanoid through a beat making time machine in the shape-shifting video for “Smoke & Lasers,” or members of All Dinosaurs lighting things on fire and sacrificing a bandmate to the soundtrack of “Castle of Uncle Robert.”

After three years of capturing Cleveland bands through the iconic art of the music video, they know this can be a rough business and labor of love. That’s why this month we’re teaming up with TurnStyle Films to give away a free music video to one local band or artist.
