Universal Pictures is in search for new talent to appear in "Starships," the official music video for "Pitch Perfect," the studio's upcoming musical comedy that hits theaters on October 5. You now have the chance to join the film's cast and internet music sensation Mike Tompkins in the video. Submit your best vocals; signature moves; beatbox; and/or guitar, bass, synth and back-up sounds to accompany this cover of Nicki Minaj's worldwide smash.
Submit your entries by visiting the official site for "Pitch Perfect." Those selected for the project will have their video showcased on both the Blu-ray DVD of "Pitch Perfect" and Tomkins' YouTube channel, which currently has more than 550,000 subscribers.
This is the first time Tompkins has collaborated with filmmakers, talent and a studio on the official music video for a movie. Tompkins is best known for creating his own unique twist on music covers using only his voice and mouth. As his popularity rose, he was noticed by some of the biggest names in entertainment and has since collaborated as a producer and writer with Timbaland and been featured on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," NBC's "TODAY" show and more. Tompkins and Alana Da Fonseca arranged this new a cappella version of "Starships," which was written by Nicki Minaj, RedOne, Carl Falk, Rami Yacoub and Wayne Hector. Watch Tompkins explain how to enter!
