Hey, everyone else seems to have one of these kinds of threads so I figured it's time I should too.
After working on the rather complex, detailed music video for my solo release 'B'ak'tun 13' for almost 2 years...it ended up going on the back-burner when a number of new music/recording projects started taking up my time, forcing me away from the visual end of the spectrum for a while. D'oh!
But with the pending arrival of my recording band's new album that's been in the works for years, I've now tasked myself with working up some music videos for it before our label releases it (release date still TBA).
First off, a quick, simple but seemingly effective teaser music video (only about 40 seconds long, which has had our fans howling in frustration...well hey, teasers ARE meant to tease! LOL), using the opening music from one of the tracks on the new album.
This was worked up primarily in Hitfilm Ultimate 2 with some final editing and a touch of Magic Bullet Quick Looks done in Vegas Movie Studio. My bandmate Scot Solida (who also writes for Computer Music Magazine) did the stop-motion puppet animation that's visible as quick silly flashes towards the end.
Granted, it's not overly exciting visually - but based on fan reactions so far, it seems to be fairly effective for getting their attention and building anticipation, which was the main point. Currently working on a much more involved full length (7+ minutes) music video for the song that's featured in this teaser.
More to follow soon...thanks for watching!
