This summer, the PJCC will be launching a music-themed anthology on the unsuspecting public. The form of this item and its launch are still undecided, but make no mistake - it will be epic. If you think this is something you'd like to get involved with, here's what you need to do:
1) Find an unsigned band, local or otherwise, and ask them if you could use one or more of their songs as a theme/stimulus/inspiration for your comic. Further to that, if they are local, ask them if they'd be up for playing at the launch event too. Make sure you include this, or your own version of when asking:
"The Paper Jam Comics Collective is a non-profit creative community, so all money made from the anthology and launch event will be put into our next project. For that reason, we can't offer bands any money for the use of their music, or for their live performances. However, the collective will cover the cost of equipment hire and of course the cost of printing the comic and burning the CDs. We're hoping this will be a mutually-beneficial endeavour, and it will generate a lot of exposure for the bands involved as well as the comic book artists. Please verify that you understand and agree with these terms so that everyone is on the same page."
If things get way legal, just drop me a line and I'm sure we can sort it out: firstname.lastname@example.org
2) E-mail me when you've had a "yes" answer from a band, or if you want to submit but can't find a band. That means I can hook people up and make a "playlist" if you like, so we know that nobody is doing the same band twice and we can get an idea of numbers. We haven't got a definite deadline or format for submissions yet, but I will be releasing one shortly after our History...and that anthology has been released, so point number three:
3) Watch this space!
