Archive for the 'Zine' Category Video Zine Forthcoming

I’m making a video zine that I am going to publish on the Internet and locally using DVDs.

The idea is to feature five or six bands with an emphasis on instrumental bands. Hopefully I can overlap that interest with many local bands but I can’t promise there won’t be times when members of Partman Parthorse are putting beer bottles in places that aren’t supposed to feature such glassware. Because, in all honesty, that’s coming down the pipe. Excuse my word choice.

Here is a rundown of what will be available:

    Each video from the zine in individual videos.
    The entire video as one continuous video.
    The entire DVD as an ISO.
    A 300dpi printable DVD cover.

A lot of the footage in this DVD might be old news since it will be content that I’ve featured on my site but I’m doing this to connect with a wider local audience as well as build my portfolio of works as a professional. There are a lot of edges to this sword that I’m swinging.

There will also be footage that I’ve never put online before for various reasons. Some of these reasons include: I’m lazy, I’m unmotivated, I’m forgetful.

Hopefully this will be a great way to feature a handful of choice songs from bands that I enjoy in an easy to process format. Maybe you’re the kind of person who just wants to watch one song and not sit through an entire production. If that’s the case then this is going to be just the thing for you.

And finally, if you enjoyed the Sleepy Eyes of Death show I recorded at The Holy Mountain then feel free to come to their next show at The Sunset Tavern on March 7th.
