Here’s the plan. I’m going to do the dance in the dark. BUT, you will still be able to see my eyebrows. Wanna know how? Wait for it, wait for iiiiiiiiiiiit……
- Originality – There are no glow in the dark eyebrows on show on YouTube, signalling a gap in the market.
- Visually striking – I want the video to grab peoples attention. Hopefully the eyebrow moves coupled with the UV Dayglo colours will prove an irresistible combination.
- Identity – The make up and UV is to create a new identity just as much as it is to hide identity. This project is totally separate from my other work and I am interested to see how it does with distance from my other projects.
If my video is to be a true remix I should really use the same music as the other eyebrow vids. Using the same music could potentially attract more viewers than if I used a different track, however, I am not mad keen on it to be honest.
Instead I will be producing my own soundtrack. I recognise the potential the video can brings as a tool to promote my music. I don’t think that UV eyebrow dancing is really suited to the ‘folkyness’ Glass Ankle, so i’ll have to come up with something different. Perhaps I’ll try my hand at a genre I’ve not dabbled in before. Electronic, synthetic instrumentation might work well.
Again, a more well known piece of music could encourage more attention, yet I believe the visual concepts are strong enough to risk not opting for the extra boost a famous song might give.
