So that little music video I made this summer for The Metermaids is having some pretty awesome distribution that I thought I’d share with you.
Besides the really amazing premiere on MySpace music, which got over 14,500 views in a few days, it has since gone on to show on AOL Music and Clear Channel, among many other places. But the most interesting distribution I’ve seen by far is on this link, courtesy of Gizmodo.
If you scroll down the page and find the first video and scroll to 08:55, you will see the video for “Turn The Lights Out” which is bundled with every Droid phone from Verizon! That’s over a million phones at launch! The places they’re taking this small little video continues to amaze me and shows the future of smart and inventive distribution for independent music videos.
The Peelander-Z video is still in post production and things are looking great! We’re doing a lot of rotoscoping and color effects now with the help of my talented animator and designer friends who are lending a helping hand to the cause. I’m hoping it’ll be worth the wait, and so far it’s looking like it will be! I’m excited to share it with you when it’s complete. It wouldn’t be able to be done without them.
I’ve also been keeping busy by continuing to shoot the occasional commercial and also have been working with Emmy award winning director Lisa Russell on “Parliament of One,” which is a documentary about the United Nations. It’s been a lot of fun working on a doc such as this and I’m hoping to do more of the same in the future.
