Project - Metalbone rock festivals
We worked on a very wide variety of operational, creative and marketing aspects for Metalbone, the Rock Concert Management company. We were very pleased to have numerous airings of 5 of our videos of Metalbone concerts on the Sky Extreme Sports TV channel Ex-Tube programme in 2007 and 2008.
Various UK rock bands played at Metalbone concerts including Evil Scarecrow, a Slipknot tribute, Inferno, Die So Fluid, DiaboliKill and Multi Purpose Chemical.
Making promo music videos is not for the fainthearted. Most unsigned bands are short of cash but still expect a good quality video. While the higher echelons of the music industry still spend £25k plus, most unsigned bands struggle to find a few hundred pounds for their promotional videos.
The cheapest way is to make a LIVE Music video - get one of your concerts filmed; but clearly the band needs to perform well on the night, the sound has to be excellent – no bum notes or missed lyrics, etc. You need to record the audio directly from the mixing desk. Ideally, the lighting needs to be brighter than you would normally have at a gig; and you need at least 3 camera angles.
Sean who headed up the team that made the music videos for Metalbone has also filmed, and thus helped to promote, numerous other musical acts including: Charlotte Hatherley, The Wombats and The Hussys, and corporate clients such as Staffordshire Youth Service, Future Home Care Ltd and Theatre Productions Ltd.
