New Enterprise studios presents



How much exciting new music has been created over the last troubling year that is not being heard because of inability to perform publicly? How many songs missed on the endless lists of Spotify? 

We want to help spread the word about some of the amazing music people have been creating and because we can't invite you into the studio right now - through this competition we are offering two winners (one National and one International) FREE music videos!

We have an amazing crew on stand by to film. Awesome judges waiting to hear your music. Across Space and Time. More details below.

entering the sixth dimension


New Enterprise Studios in association with Dead Reel Films have produced several music videos and filmed live events with bands such as Bumblefoot, Little Ceasar, Kilonova, Lords of Ruin, Trevor Sewell and The one offs.

Based in Sunderland, UK, NES provides studio space, audio recording, filmmaker services and more – as well as producing their own content.


Every song submitted will:

  • Be judged and receive feedback

  • Available to submit to other Festivals on FilmFreeway

  • Receive Radio play on Nova Radio
  • Have the oppurtunity to be included in future Media


Lockdowns, distance, time, money. All factors which hinder musicians from having Professional Music Videos created for them. We are taking all of those things out of the equation.

You send your music. Our panel of judges listens. We air them on Nova Radio FM (a UK based internet radio station with thousands of listeners) and we pick our favorites and create content for them.


Entries are made via FilmFreeway – An Internationally acclaimed gateway for filmmakers and festivals and events.

To enter: Create an account on the FilmFreeway website and then create a Project. Choose this to be SONG/MUSIC. Add as many details as you can about yourself/band, etc. And upload your song.

Once your project is complete, choose to submit to our Sixth Dimension festival and pay the entry fee via Credit, Debit or PayPal – and you are IN!

Your project on FilmFreeway can be submitted to other festivals as well, opening more horizons for your music!


The winning groups will get:
International winnerA music video created by NES, using an original concept we have designed and incorporating the winning artists into the video via footage gathered through online meetings.

National winnerA music video created by NES, in our Studio, with the artists invited to work the concept and film in person together. After Lockdown has ended.
