Chance the Rapper seems set to reshape the public school situation in Chicago on his own. He has already given one million to city schools to develop art programs, and he's helped raised over two million dollars more. He is now taking the student/artist conversation a step further.
Last year, Chance collaborated with Jamila Woods on her track "LSD" off of her stellar debut album HEAVN. Now, Woods and the rapper are looking for Chicago public school students to submit music video treatments for the track, with the top selections getting a chance to work with production team.
Chance made the announcement via Twitter, saying, "Chicago musician/poet/activist Jamila Woods, in collaboration with Jagjaguwar, Closed Sessions, and VAM STUDIOS, is seeking your ideas to make a video for Jamila's song "LSD (featuring Chance the Rapper)." The winning video treatment will become a full production shoot with Jamila and Chance.
"The winning student will shadow the directors and production crew on the set for the day. Other submitting students who show promise in the competition will be paired with a film set department head to shadow on the set. This production will be directed by Vincent Martell and Sam Bailey.
"All high school students (including graduating seniors) are encouraged to apply. Please submit video treatments (as a PDF) to email@example.com. Submissions due by June 2nd, 2017."
This is certainly a once in a lifetime opportunity for students and artists alike and is another exciting opportunity created by Chance and his team, showing that artists can be much more stars.
