A Great Example of Crowd Sourcing

24 08 2009

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but there’s a great example of a crowd sourced music video which popped up on the web at the beginning of the summer. I meant to mention it then but… I don’t know… life intervened.

Shot for the Japanese band Sour’s song “Hibi no Neiro” (which means something like “Everyday Tone”) this is a great example of how you can make something incredibly creative with very little money and involve your fans in the process. Their fans are much more likely to be involved and support Sour after something like this.

Hi Norman

Love the blogs. Long time listener, first time caller as it were.

I just saw something in the same vein that made me realize that out of gajillions of youtube bedroom videos, some would find ways to stand out.

I like this one, here’s another one that invents a new genre ala dogma – called videosongs. Two rules, every shot is of actual performance, every sound element is seen on screen at some point. The two musicians are talented multi-instrumentalists who build up all the tracks, check it out. (also note, unsigned band with over 2 million views and a huge online fan base).
