*[FMQB.com] MVD Entertainment Group has launched the site www.InTheHandsOfTheFans.com to offer fans an opportunity to film and interview Iggy and the Stooges when they perform the seminal album Raw Power at the All Tomorrow's Parties festival on September 3. Six fans will be chosen by way of a video submission contest to join director Joey Carey on location at the Stardust Theater at Kutchers' Country Club in Monticello, NY. The contest is based on fans submitting short high definition video segments asking Iggy and the Stooges interview questions, or demonstrating why they should win the contest. Winners of the contest will film and interview the band at All Tomorrow's Parties, and then the footage, along with the contestant video submissions, will be crafted into a longform program that will be part concert film and part reality TV show about the journey of the fans.
