PROJECT 108 DESCRIPTION
Project 108 is a platform for all Pearl drummers to showcase their talents and an opportunity to bring together the global drumming community in one seamless video. We're asking all Pearl drummers & percussionists to submit their performance video to be included in a montage of all valid submissions. Your performance must be recorded at 108 beats per minute in 4/4 time to be included. One entry per YouTube account.
Participants of all ages are welcome. US and International Residents are eligible to participate. Employees of Pearl Corporation and their respective parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers, advertising agencies, and families, and persons living in the same household as such employees, are also welcome to participate. The Project 108 video is subject to all national, federal, state and local laws and regulations.

This will be the final submission period for Project 108.
HOW TO ENTER
To enter the PROJECT 108 video, go to www.pearlproject108.com to complete and submit the online registration form.
VIDEO SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS
Pearl equipment must be the focus in the video and non-Pearl drum/percussion/hardware equipment can not be visible. Of course, non-Pearl cymbals, drumsticks, and drumheads are allowed. Video submissions must be no longer than 20 seconds in length. The only accepted file format for consideration will be an active YouTube link. To ensure we edit your video in the correct starting point, please give (at least) a 4-count stick click intro.
Our finished video will be produced in HD so please use the highest resolution/audio capture as possible to record your performance... you want to look and sound good, right? Please don't add graphics to your video as we'll add that on the finished version.
If you want to keep your video under wraps until it debuts on the finished Project 108 video, just make it Unlisted on your YouTube account as we'll have the link to view it. If you make it a Private video, we won't be able to see it.
SELECTION OF VIDEOS
All entries will be reviewed and selected by Pearl Corporation based on how in sync the performance is to 108 bpm and best convey the spirit of PROJECT 108. The decisions of the submission panel are final on all matters relating to PROJECT 108.
All participating Pearl Artists will have 8 bars of performance at 108 bpm.
