The Ir­ish bands par­tic­i­pat­ing in this year’s Tisch mu­sic video project have been an­nounced. Each year, a num­ber of acts have a mu­sic video made for them by stu­dents from New York Uni­ver­sity’s Tisch School of the Arts. The Tisch stu­dents spend one se­mes­ter of their course in Dublin.

The 10 acts who will have to get ready for their close-ups over the next few weeks are Deloren­tos, David Geraghty, Dead­bots, Di­rec­tor, The Gand­his, Heathers, I Phoenix, Neo­su­per­vi­tal, Sweet Jane and Vengeance & the Pan­ther Queen.

Louise and El­lie MacNamara of Heathers told The Ticket they were “ex­tremely ex­cited” that a pro­fes­sional video made for their song Re­mem­ber When. “We’re so grate­ful for this op­por­tu­nity. The pro­gramme seems like a re­ally great idea,” they said. “We get to share ideas and work with some amaz­ingly tal­ented peo­ple.”

Ly­dia Des Dolles of Sweet Jane was also looking for­ward to shoot­ing a video for her band’s song You’re Mak­ing This Hard. “It re­ally is a fan­tas­tic idea, sim­ply be­cause it is merg­ing two pretty savvy cities on the mu­sic scene right now,” she said. “All our money is usu­ally spent on tour­ing, too, so with this project we to get to work with the best in up-and-com­ing direc­tors for a purely creative ideal.” The fin­ished videos will be screened at an event in Dublin in De­cem­ber.
