To make a music video.

As I'm sure most of you probably don't know, I aspire to be a filmmaker. I want to make music videos, movies, trees, and everything else filmmakers make. Over the past few months I've been thinking about a music video idea for the song "Food" by Reggie and the Full Effect. The song is as follows.

I did not make that video. I just wanted to share the song so you are all on the same page, and that guy conveniently had made that with the song set to it, and yeah. Shut up.

So, after like three months of talking about it but doing nothing about it, my friend and I have decided to get started. Now, I don't know if you all feel the same way, but this song totally screams for a dance music video, in the same vein as Weapon of Choice (Fatboy Slim, directed by the always amazing Spike Jonze).

You won't believe how hard it is to find this video on youtube that doesn't have embedding disabled. Theres possibly a good reason for this, but I'm not sure what it is.

Well anyways, as I was saying, in the same vein as that video. Not on the same scale (there will be no flying), but it'd be a dance in time with the song. Neither he or I actually knows how to dance, and were choreographing it on our own, and so there is a good chance this might end up terrible, but we have to start somewhere. We've actually started so many things and stopped halfway through, and if we want to make it, we need to stop doing that, and we are trying to see to it that this is where the quitting ends.

Pester me every once in a while about it, and say you will be disappointed if it is not done by summer. If its not done by then, it probably will never get done. So yeah, pester me about it. Like, every once in a while, but often enough. Whenever we amke major leaps and stride we'll let you know. We might even take pictures and such.

Thats all! Bye!

I definitely think you should do this. Have you seen the music video for "Dance Commander" by Electric Six? It's also amusing, but not as, um, eloquent. Still funny though. They put out a lot of amusing videos in addition to their great music.

I found a high res version here if you haven't seen it- http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=vboGDSUGCyY

No, I'm not a plant, I just, uh, like that band...yeeess.
