Title: ...Overworld Fan Video?!
Post by: Afterburn on February 13, 2008, 12:19:03 am
(Okay, I know there's a pics and vids section just below the band discussion, I just thought I'd put this here for more views.. lolol. Move this if you want to, mods, it won't hurt my feelings any.)

Alrighty, I'm here in the United States like the horrible person I am and Overworld releases tomorrow and nobody has to tell me I'm excited for it, despite the fact that I've already downloaded it. I always get excited for album launches, I don't know why, especially when they're by the bands that I actually love to listen to (i.e., Machinae Supremacy!). But that's not the point of this thread, while it still is a big point of this thread, it isn't the main one I'm getting to. What I'm getting to is a video, a fan video. A music video made by the fans, from the fans, to the fans, and so that the band can laugh at us doing ridiculous stuff. The video would be comprised of a song on Overworld (duh) and the videos will be taken of us by us, or groups of people related to us, and I'll put them in the video in relation to the song, with the song being the only thing that we can hear, because I don't think any of us wants to hear someone step on the cat in the background.

I've been part of something similar to this with Powerman 5000, except it wasn't a new cd launch, that happened in 2006. The video I took part in was around a year before it happened to a song they released titled Heroes and Villains, and practically everyone who was on the message board at the time took part of it. And hey look, its on youtube! ( http://youtube.com/watch?v=AtbXIf25sY8 ) I look silly in that vid, and so does nearly everyone else, and Spider (vocalist) got a laugh out of it and enjoyed it.

So this is a suggestion to those who are interested and those who are not interested. Anyone up for this idea? I directed one by myself a few months ago (PM5K, not MaSu) and it wasn't as enjoyable with myself as I speculated, I just guess having multiple people send in clips and then putting it together would rock. We've practically got a whole album to choose from and I'll give it a few days before everyone makes the decision on what song we'll use for the vid. So get thinking!

Here's a track listing on the album, I'll keep count of what people suggest to me in this thread or in PM and I'll try and update twice daily, the one with the most counts gets it. Edge and Pearl already has a music video, so it won't be included. Those posts with "multiple choices" will not be taken accounted for, pick one for now please.

I'd like to see Dark City or Skin, but I'm afraid it will be very different from the images the music creates in my mind. And I'm very happy with these images.

My vote goes to Dark City.

VIOLATOR

Post by: ~futilite~ on February 13, 2008, 01:24:33 am
Violator (I've seldomly listened to it as I'm actually waiting for my CD, but I really enjoyed it and maybe it is good for a very mixed video...)
Title: Re: ...Overworld Fan Video?!
Post by: Gazus on February 13, 2008, 01:25:49 am
I would choose between "Dark City" or "Need for Steve".
"Dark City" for the epic thing, "Need For Steve" for the catchy and popish thing.
So I vote Dark Steevy ! \o/

Violator (I've seldomly listened to it as I'm actually waiting for my CD, but I really enjoyed it and maybe it is good for a very mixed video...)

Violator gets my vote too. Best song on the album imo. Gotta love the SID intro!

I'm changing my vote to Violator too. ;>

Title: Re: ...Overworld Fan Video?!
Post by: evilcandybag on February 13, 2008, 03:45:52 am
I'd say Violator, not because it's the best song on the album (because it isn't), but because I think it'll be easy to make this kind of video for it.
Title: Re: ...Overworld Fan Video?!
Post by: Skorpinox on February 13, 2008, 03:55:49 am
Violator fits this the most IMO

Need for steve or violator  ;D (forum lurker!)

Could you just pick one?

Also, Chronologix, I would have an option to do all of them, but one's enough for the moment.. I'm sure we'll get around to most, if not all, within the future.
Title: Re: ...Overworld Fan Video?!
Post by: Viherminttu on February 13, 2008, 06:04:14 am
Violator... but if you'll dress up like Britney, I'll change my vote to Gimme More! :D
Title: Re: ...Overworld Fan Video?!
Post by: Zombie With Style on February 13, 2008, 07:02:05 am
Wow, I'm kind of surprised of all the people voting for violator and not something like Sid Icarus or Convyer, since I think they kick a lot more ass, but hey, I guess violators cool too

I don't have a web cam, so how about you use my forum avatar and just cut to that for my section? And maybe jiggle the camera a little so it looks like it's dancing. ;D

Violator :)
Title: Re: ...Overworld Fan Video?!
Post by: Erica on February 13, 2008, 06:00:50 pm
I vote for Sid Icarus 
I have never heard of a video like this before but I think this was a great idea, I'm sure it'll be fun! :D
Title: Re: ...Overworld Fan Video?!
Post by: Inkognito on February 13, 2008, 11:19:15 pm
Dark City.
But it must be so atmosferic and epic as the song is.
Anyway, I hope you'll do your best for it :)

I don't see how Violator fits for this kind of video. It's about religious biggotry. Dark City is too epic and dark and Conveyer doesn't fit either. gdfpgsjmpgrejwpg.. I say Overworld. It's bouncy and has SID. Other good choice would be Need For Steve.

 
Title: Re: ...Overworld Fan Video?!
Post by: Zombie With Style on February 19, 2008, 08:26:07 am
I think people are more going for the music part then the lyrics. To me, the sid part is cool, but the rest of it is nothing that groundbreaking.

On second thought, I change my vote to Need for Steve. It should be that or Overworld, maybe Conveyer. Now that I look back at it, Dark City might be the best song of the album, but its not the best song for this kind thing.

Okay, this Wednesday comes with the second week Overworld has been released. What I'm going to do is take the top three candidates (songs) and give people a week to vote on which one they want to do, then after that week is done, the shooting will commence!
Title: Re: ...Overworld Fan Video?!
Post by: Jack Lupino on February 24, 2008, 07:52:00 pm
Conveyer
Title: Re: ...Overworld Fan Video?!

I choose Radio Future as the lyrics fit, and it's a good sing along thing.

Dark City... such an incredible song.

Post by: Deep on February 26, 2008, 07:12:15 pm
My vote is on Stand. It's a song about the fans, really. "Such an army of little freaks" etc, I think it really fits.

Of course it does... you little freak ;)

hmm... so hard to decide. I think I'll go for Violator (since it seems to be winning anyway)

Though Gimme More (SID) would've been fun (My guess is that this cover is the reason for that Britney snapped :P - is just pure ownage all the way) , I have to go with Violator as well...

Seems like my vote won't make much of a difference, but I really think the song that would fit the best would be Need for Steve.

Bah, so many votes for Violator...but I still vote for Dark City. Overwhelming epic-ness. =D
