The Unicorn Project

What is Big Smoke Signal?


 Big Smoke Signal is a project to assist artists in promoting themselves on social media through the use of video and a live performance at a Toronto venue. All music genres will be considered equally.

 Successful applicants will have one “live off the floor” single camera video shot by Sound Still Productions followed by two multiple angle videos shot during the night of the performance.

 The performance will take place at a participating venue of the Unicorn Project’s choice. The successful applicants will be teamed up with an established act of the project’s choosing. The admission charge from the live performance will be shared by the two artists. The cost of the video production is covered by Sound Still Productions and the Unicorn Project.
