Modern metal outfit Dark Age has come up with a new way to create a music video. Via their MySpace page, they have asked their fans to submit video clips of "yourself going crazy" to the song "10 Steps to Nausea," off their most recent full length "Acedia." Once Dark Age has compiled the clips they will construct a full music video out of them. The full post is below:
We are launching a very special video contest and we need your help!!!
We are planning to do a videoclip for the song "10 Steps to Nausea" from our current album ACEDIA.
Different from the normal (and usually boring) performance clips you see every day we want our fans to be a part of the clip.
- How? -
Just switch on your webcam (or a digi cam) and film yourself going crazy to "10 Steps to Nausea". Use your imagination, YOU can do a crazy performance clip alone or with your friends or even go outdoors and film something crazy. Whatever comes to your mind is welcome.
After filming the stuff please inform us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a short discription of your video.
We will get back to you with further instructions.
Please DO NOT send anything without notification!
After receiving your filmed material we want to compile all the stuff and hope to present you a very unique clip including YOU!
So, tell it to your friends, switch on your cam and let the madness beginn!!!
We are really looking foreward to your ideas!
