...Overworld Fan Video?!
« 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.
We're open to such things, we've even talked many times about doing it with Inja, but in a way that's redundant because we can already get Erica

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...)

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

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.
