MUSIC fans have come back to their old university in a bid to win a competition hosted by top rockers Muse.
The internationally famous band have challenged fans to make a music video for their track, Animals.
Former Huddersfield students, Ross Birks, Holly Petrie and Greg Gould were back on campus to film their entry for the competition.
Ross and Greg graduated from the university’s TV production and media course last summer and immediately formed their own company, Pictures & Noise, with Ash Walker and ex-university colleagues David Bintwhistle and Holly Petrie.
Ross, who lives in Rastrick, said: “We’re big Muse fans and between doing work for clients we like to enter competitions to keep us sharp.
“The song is called Animals so our idea is about a guy who’s a dog and girl who’s a cat.
“But the cat develops heart problems and finds out its nine lives are weakening.
“So the duo go on a Bonnie and Clyde style robbery spree across Huddersfield to raise money for the operation.
“We’ve filmed around town and at a gold shop in Rotherham.
“We needed to film a medical scene so asked if they could use the mock hospital ward in the Harold Wilson Building, so that’s been useful.”
The winner of the competition will receive £3,000 and have their video uploaded to the official Muse website and YouTube channel.
The winning filmmaker will also be invited to one of Muse’s summer stadium shows, where their video will be aired.
Ross added: “We’re quite hopeful that we can win.
“Greg’s seen Muse seven or eight times and I’ve seen them about five times, so we’re hoping our stars will align.
“It would give us great exposure and take us up a notch”.
