Hi there

submissions as we search for the freshest film directors around.

Swarovski and Tank launch Three Graces film competition

Swarovski has teamed up with Tank to search the creative community for
the freshest film directors around. The Three Graces competition,
which launches today, is an open call to filmmakers and creatives
working with the moving image to develop a short film to accompany one
of three exclusive tracks we?ve commissioned for the project.

Submissions will interpret the myth of the Three Graces, who symbolise
the qualities of radiance, joy and abundance.

The film competition has three rounds running over seven months. There
is a cash prize of ?1,500 for each round and a grand prize of ?3,500,
which will be awarded in January 2009. Submissions will be judged by a
prestigious panel of filmmakers and leading industry insiders.

The Three Graces

The Three Graces are Zeus? daughters, Agalia, Euphrosyne and Thalia,
who are said to embody radiance, abundance and joy. They?ve inspired
artists from ancient history to the Renaissance and beyond. Their
qualities mirror those of crystal itself, enchanting our souls,
inspiring our dreams and lifting our mood. The myth of the Three
Graces provides a window into crucial artistic questions about the
dualities of poetry and industry, heart and head, art and science. It
remains a potent source of inspiration.

We?ve commissioned three of our own films from Jamie Isaia, Bella
Howard and the Parisian art collective AS/EC ? to work with exclusive
tracks by Au Revoir Simone, Metronomy and Giant Drag to kick-off
proceedings for the microsite?s launch.  Our films will not be entered
as part of the competition and are on the site to inspire and entice.

The Soundtrack

We?ve worked with three great artists to produce three exclusive
tracks - available for download from the microsite to use as
soundtracks to the films.  Filmmakers are welcome to use their own
music for the soundtrack as long as they hold the relevant copyright

Au Revoir Simone, ?The Lucky One? (exclusive remix)

Brooklyn-based Au Revoir Simone are Erika Forster (keyboards, vocals),
Annie Hart (keyboards, vocals) and Heather D?Angelo (drum machines,
keyboard, vocals). They harbour a deep-seated love of keyboards,
obviously, and vintage drum machines. They have toured with We Are
Scientists and Peter, Bjorn and John, and their full-length debut, The
Bird of Music, was released on Moshi Moshi earlier this year.

Metronomy, ?Crystals?

Driven by visionary frontman Joseph Mount, Metronomy emerged under the
nu-rave banner alongside Klaxons and went on to enjoy enduring
critical and commercial success. Their debut album, Pip Paine (Pay The
?5000 You Owe) was an underground smash and will be followed by Nights
Out this summer. They have remixed the likes of S?bastien Tellier,
Architecture in Helsinki, Franz Ferdinand, the Young Knives, Ladytron
and Gorillaz and toured with CSS, Kate Nash, Foals and Justice.

Giant Drag, ?Stuff to Live For?

Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter/guitarist Annie Hardy is the
creative force behind Giant Drag. She carries on the fine noise/grunge
tradition of My Bloody Valentine and PJ Harvey. Giant Drag has
released one album, Hearts and Unicorns on Kickball/Interscope, and
has toured with the Jesus and Mary Chain, Scissor Sisters and the
Lemonheads. Hardy is working on a new album slated for release this
