We're delighted to announce that Daniel Dalton and Susan Gleeson have been chosen as the final two contestants in TAKE ONE! The HTC-Hot Press Music Video Project.
Both finalists will be given a budget of €1,000 and an award winning HTC One to shoot their video for Irish rock combo The Dirty Epics, one of Ireland's hottest bands.
One of the two will be selected as the official video for the forthcoming single, “Those Pretty Things” and the winning video maker will receive €2,000, their own award winning HTC One and a PR and social media campaign to highlight their fantastic work..
The two completed music videos will go head to head with the overall winner decided upon through a mix of public votes and votes from the band, HTC and Hot Press.
