Bug 17 - The Evolution of Music Video

Bug 17 is an event at the BFI Southbank. Hosted by Adam Buxton he presents a selection of the newest, wildest, most inventive music videos, inviting some of the directors up on stage for a chat about their latest projects.

Highlight for Bug 17 was an interview with Roel Wouters & Jonathan Puckey who have created a really cool crowd sourcing video. The track is for the four piece C-Mon & Kypski titled ‘More is Less’. The premise is that you see a frame from the music video your then invited to mimic and capture the pose. Roel said it’s only going to be up there for another month or so (or when the money runs out) so if you want to be in it upload your picture quick!

If you’re into appearing in music videos Facebook have just recently launched a Fan video site which grabs your profile picture and inserts it (really convincingly) into one of 8 custom shot videos with big pop artists. I had mine done and the results are really good!
