Universal Pictures announced Wednesday that it has begun the 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 15.
With the chance to join the film’s cast and Internet music sensation Mike Tompkins in the video, amateur musicians and dancers are encouraged to submit their best vocals; signature moves; beatbox; and/or guitar, bass, synth and back-up sounds to accompany this cover of Nicki Minaj’s worldwide smash.
Those selected for the project will have their video showcased on both the Blu-ray DVD of Pitch Perfect and Tomkins’ YouTube channel.
“Pitch Perfect celebrates everyone out there who is following his or her true passion,” said the film’s director, Jason Moore. “Mike Tompkins embodies passion for music, and we’re thrilled to be able to partner with him on this project. I can’t wait to watch the undiscovered talent that I know we’ll find.”

“When Universal approached me with the idea to make a video for Pitch Perfect, I knew it would be a fun partnership,” noted Tompkins. “Making music has driven me since I was a kid, and I know there are many others out there who love it as much as I do. I’m looking forward to seeing what we are able to create together.”
