Two months ago I sent out a message through the various Bedlam Six networks asking people to send us weird and wonderful (or downright horrible) footage to include in a new music video.
Usually our songs are fairly narrative-heavy so the accompanying videos tend to have a pretty rigid theme and structure. The new single, however, is more instrument-heavy and lyrically vague. What better time to conduct an experiment in crowd-sourcing and create a video out of completely random material sent in by the audience.
Here’s the result…
It is interesting just how many people included images of dolls and shop dummies. When I sent out the press release the cover art of dismembered manikin hands had not yet been unveiled.
Serendipity or something more sinister?
