Name: Radar Music Videos
No music project is unviable any longer – the amount (and diversity) of social networking sites currently available has wiped the word “impossible” away from the dictionary of music. If you wanted to assemble a band together that plays only one song – a 45-minutes rendition of “The Crystal Ship” – you are not only going to gather the musicians, but you are also going to get some supporters. That is, now that viral videos are all the rage people have license to do mostly whatever they fancy from the comfort (and safety) of their living rooms. The chances of a random drunk flinging a bottle of Newcastle Brown at the band are not just minimized – they become non-existent.
But if you think about it, not every angle is already covered. There is one in particular that has been unattended until now: the creation of a compelling music video. And that is all the more surprising because the potential a clip can have when it comes to doubling the expressive force of a song is colossal.
This site hopes to do something about that. It will let you create video projects that will then be scrutinized by directors, and those who feel that they can bring your original vision to fruition will get in touch. You can then decide whether or not you are hiring them.
Just the other day I was reading the results of a poll conducted among MySpace users. It dealt with the best music videos in history. Titles like A-Ha’s “Take On Me” and (of course) Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” topped it – even after all these years they remain as vivid examples of the ways in which visual elements can make any song reach a new height. Think about it if you have just penned what you deem as a potential smash. And if you finally decide to look for people who are trained in visual arts, pointing your browser to the Radar Music Videos website could be a good way to start going the distance.
