Just trying to get a general feel for how you guys view music videos today, in the past, and in regards to the overall package of an artist. Are music videos important to you? Would you like an artist if they didn't make them? Would you feel like something is lacking without that visual element? Even if the songs are spectacular? Do you connect to the films and think they add to the song and give it something extra? Do you usually find new artists and get interested in them through their videos? Would you be disappointed if your favorite artists didn't make them?
I'm asking because I'm currently setting up a lot of stuff for films and it's a ton of money and most importantly time. I personally have connected with very few music videos and think most of them are egotistical (all the duck faces at the camera, haha), abstract, and plain out boring (except for Michael Jackson's; his are the only ones I love). I think it's nice to have a more visual element to the brand, and am sure I'd do a way better job than what's out there currently, but sometimes it's simpler to just focus on the music. I wonder if it's worth the hassle; I guess deep down I'm believing they still are, but still think it'd be interesting to get your input as the consumer. Thank ya!
