Create the first and only music video for Carly Simon’s classic and have your video premiered at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival and meet Carly in person.
Thirty seven years ago, pop songstress Carly Simon tore up the record charts with her single "You’re So Vain." The song captured the number-one slot on both the Billboard Hot 100 and the Adult Contemporary charts, and to this day remains one of the most popular classic rock songs of all time.
Perhaps more than any other track in pop music, the song’s central mystery captivated the public. Ironically, even with all this speculation,
the song has never had a music video to accompany it.
To coincide with her critically-acclaimed latest release, NEVER BEEN GONE, fans and filmmakers are invited to submit a music video to accompany the newly recorded version of “You’re So Vain.” If you’d like to add elements of the original 1972 version of the song feel free, but your video has to incorporate at least some of the 2010 recording, making the most of the new footage that can be downloaded here.
Carly will screen and judge all of the entries herself. The winning video will be featured on AOL Music’s Spinner.com and screened at this years’ Tribeca Film Festival in April, where the winner will also have the opportunity meet Carly Simon.
To help fans and filmmakers out, Carly has created a template of optional tools which can be utilized in the creation of the video including recently shot green screen footage, stills, video blogs and more. Here’s everything you need.
