First some background on the A/V Swap:
The A/V swap is annual event that brings together filmmakers and musicians.The concept is simple: filmmakers submit a short movie without a soundtrack and composers submit a soundtrack without a movie. Then the curators play matchmaker and assign each filmmaker a soundtrack for which he or she creates a NEW movie, and musicians receive a movie for which they create a NEW soundtrack. The result is a collaboration between two artists who have never met creating something together.

The A/V Swap is in it’s sixth year in Houston, second in NYC and this year is having inaugural shows in Buffalo and Austin, TX. The Buffalo show will be curated by Neil Carroll of Nickel City Graphics. More specific details on this year’s A/V Swap will be outlined in a future article. For now, it is time to start thinking thinking up poster designs.
