Music video (low resolution does not do it justice):

MP3 (high quality):

Enjoy.

P.S. If someone can show me how, I would definitely like to post a YouTube HD video, but I have no idea how to do it. Thanks.

That was totally tripped out and somewhat disturbing. I really liked it. It reminds me of older NIN and Ministry. Don't know if you're influenced by either.

Question though... Is it really a music video? In the traditional sense, a music video would be made to compliment, accompany a song, in which case, I would suggest that you shorten the entire thing by about half. It's far too long. On the other hand, if you were thinking of it in terms of it being a piece of art, in other words, the music was made for/with the video portion, then that is an entirely different story. I'm just mentioning this because as a viewer I felt that the piece had a bit of an identity crisis. Is it a short film? Is it performance art? Is it a music video? No one knows but you. Smile

x2 on the length. Do a radio edit version...

One thing I was noticing was that a lot of the pictures are only up long enough for you to notice the unique features - but not long enough to absorb it. I kept finding myself pausing and going back to look at pictures, sort of a "wtf was that I didn't really see it" effect. Not sure if that matters to you but it definitely took the focus off of the music and broke the continuity. Some of those images are outstandingly interesting though, kudos for that.

Hey guys, thanks!

Pun: actually it was intended as performance art, but I labeled it a music video to attract attention.

Sorry about the length... this is the first time I've done this. Second vocal track ever (the first was a horrible, miserable failure).

Bunyip: It was kind of my intention to make the imagery subliminal while staying with the beat. If you were finding yourself saying "WTF" and watching it again; that was my goal. Wink

Thanks for the feedback guys!!
