Promoting my Stop-motion music video because it rocks!!! And i had a lot of fun making it.
music web site Beta100 awarded it Silver for high quality original video with good production values.. (lol)
They awarded the song a Bronze.

If you like it vote, and i can climb the music charts. :D

I was gonna announce this project a flop but it's finally finding it's audience.
(unlike the previous video which was well received by various websites and critics, yet hated by the general public)

Thanks for the kind words.
It didn't quite go according to plan, i had a serious issues with lighting this time and it shows.. although i tried to hide that by implying there was a faulty lightbulb in the clip. Certainly something to improve in next time.

You can vote every 24 hours ;)
I think the chart thing is a 2 week event, if you're not at certainly place in two weeks you get kicked off. lol.
Beat100 are quite well known for supporting new unheard music so their opinions, chart and awards are worth something. But I'm just interested in getting the video out and getting people to view it.

Maybe it wont be three years until me next lol

Wow, that's really good Meph. Agree with the above, the lightbulb 'problem' was turned into a very nice 'feature'. I have certainly seen professionally shot stop-motion animations that are not as good. It is a skill that is incredibly hard to get right, and must take a bloomin' age to produce! Congratulations!

professional level have got it easier...lol proper gigs and tie down systems the computer software, and a good lighting system. plus sets are a bigger and easier to Handel.. but all that means things take much longer.
I'm not much of an animator, which also gives you back pains, sore eyes and having your head next to a hot lamp is an all round horrid experience... but for some reason we still do it.

Had enough music videos for now, time to do a short movie.. something more personal.
The one thing i have never done is voice/narration.. maybe this will be the time.

Nice one Meth...very nice :tup:

When I studied music, a little while back now!! I made a video of one of my reggae/breakbeat tunes...tune was great, video was s@*t. I found it the other day, mildew all over my VHS tape. I gotta try and change the format and get it posted on Youtube. It sort of shows my age a little, the mastered original from the Tascam Reel to Reel was on a cassette tape.

Anyhow, once again...welldone :v2_dizzy_thumbsup:
