Contestants are able to download the actual production footage of the official Imagine Dragons "Believers" music video, and cut their own version for the chance to win $25,000!

Justin Odisho: How to Sync Cut Footage to Music in Adobe Premiere Pro CC

Learn how to edit your video to the rhythm of a music track in this Premiere Pro tutorial by Justin Odisho. First, at 1:15 Justin identifies beats in the audio waveform, and then cuts his video clips to sync using the razor tool. (You can also lock the music track and use keyboard shortcuts Q and W to Ripple Trim Edit to Playhead.) Alternatively, BeatEdit for Premiere Pro by Mamoworld will analyze your music track and add markers to beats. Then, with Snapping (S) enabled, you can easily edit your footage to the markers with 100% precision. At 2:27 Justin suggests using onscreen text and fades to stylize your syncopated edits.
