After my recent post about lyrics videos I heard from a number of artists and video creators about their work. I was impressed by the quality and creativity of the videos below and picked out those that struck me as the most outstanding. If you've got a lyrics video of your own, please do post a link in the comments.
Sarah Solovay - My Favorite Mistake
I originally heard from one of Sarah Solovay's "people" back when I posted about Fiverr. She used Fiverr to find both graphic artists for her EP design and social media site art and a publicist to write her press release.
The above video was created by a designer she found through oDesk and he did quite a nice job.
Premise Beach - Hold Me Now
Premise Beach, aka Jon Covell, created the above music video for his song "Hold Me Now."
I found out about it via a tweet from his label Pure Casual who added this commentary:
"Budget = $0, Manhours = shitloads"
It's a good reminder of the cost of "free" when you're doing it yourself.
Megan Redmond - Dreamland
Gerome Delfino is a freelance designer who created the above video for Megan Redmond. He places his work in the context of kinetic typography and says he's been getting more interest in this kind of thing lately.
You can see more examples of his work with lyrics videos at his website.
Dreama - CTRL+ALT+DEL
Dreama sent me the above video for her single "CTRL+ALT+DEL." In addition to writing the song, she directed the video and created it in collaboration with graphic designer Milos Nikolic.
Additional Lyrics Videos
I also heard from VEIL about their lyrics video for E-Sahka which is worth a look.
And from David J Caron who has a whole series of lyrics videos he created for his album "Thru Ever Ending Black" on YouTube.
