If you’re a fan of The Beatles, you’ve probably heard the band’s latest release, Now and Then. From an unfinished project recorded in 1970, it finally became a complete song, followed by a video. Well, today, we’re talking about that video, as it wasn’t very well received. It shows a remarkably obvious (and rather terrible) use of AI, and “troubling,” “uncanny,” “horrendous,” and “digital necromancy” are just some of the ways the critics describe it.

Tom Cruise is never gonna give them up, let them down, or desert them. I’m talking about his Mission Impossible film crew, of course. As the Hollywood strikes continue, the film schedule for Cruise’s next MI film is getting more and more delayed, and his crew are suffering the consequences.
But not to worry, Crusie has found them another gig: working on none other than Rick Astley‘s latest music video. The film crew are still allowed to work as they aren’t directly affected by the strikes. However, they are losing out on paid work. Cruise decided it was time to take action.
Every new videographer seems to go through a phase where they shoot a lot of music videos. Some of us never quite grow out of it! It could be because there are always musicians hungry for videos, or it could be because they offer a valuable platform to experiment and push the boundaries of filming.
But you’re unlikely to make a lot of money shooting music videos, and unless you’re working for Bad Bunny, you can easily end up broke. In this video from YCImaging, they talk frankly about the pros and cons of shooting music videos and why you might want to move onto a more lucrative genre.
The world of art has always been a space for creativity, expression, and innovation. Throughout history, artists have pushed boundaries, challenged conventions, and embraced new technologies to create groundbreaking works. Artificial intelligence (AI) has brought about a significant shift in the artistic landscape in recent years, sparking both fascination and concern.
One platform that has captured the attention of many artists is MidJourney, which offers new functionality that allows users to zoom out and generate images endlessly quickly. This capability has opened up a realm of possibilities for storytelling and experimentation. This new feature inspired me, and immediately, I wanted to use it to tell a story. I settled on a music video as a concept.
Ohio police are suing rap star Afroman for using footage of a live police raid on his house in a music video. Several members of the police department are suing because their faces are clearly shown in the videos. The men claim to have been the target of ridicule.
The lawful search of the rapper’s property took place last year with a full warrant. The police had a tip-off that they would find evidence of drug and trafficking-related offences. However, the raid showed no evidence and that everything was lawful and in order. No charges were filed.
There are arguably some moments in one’s life that make you take stock and question whether you are making the most of your time. Undergoing diagnosis for cancer and then subsequent chemotherapy is probably one of those times.
This musician certainly made the most of his time when he created this stunning music video during his 5-hour chemo sessions, using the CT scans themselves to create this captivating video to accompany his latest composition, ‘Hellbrunn Automatons’.
A dizzying tour at top speed that takes you through art galleries, underground stations and historic monuments. Sports stadiums, the arctic circle, the Faroe islands: they are all here on this whistlestop music video created entirely from Google Street View.
Adam Chitayat began the project whilst confined by the Covid-19 pandemic. He says he was “desperate for the outside world beyond my doorstep, city, state and country” and so started using Google Maps Street View images as a means to explore and escape.
What happens when an award-winning director and a musician get together in a school gym with an iPhone? Well, from the looks of this latest music video released by Mumford of his song ‘Cannibal’, you get a pretty slick yet incredibly low-budget music video!
Steven Spielberg directed and filmed his first ever music video with Marcus Mumford. It was filmed and released just this month, and it’s honestly both pretty great and also quite reassuring at the same time! It’s also a one-take video, which is awesome.
There are so many different ways to use photography, and the barriers to realising your creativity are possibly lower than ever. We have a device in our pocket that is capable of producing so many cool things, the only limit is our imagination. This interesting music video was created using very basic resources, and the result is pretty impressive.
TikToker and singer Lubalin shared a music video that his partner had made. At first glance, it looks like fairly standard animation, albeit done with line drawings. But then he shared another video showing how it was made.
I believe that you’re already familiar with the power of text-to-image AI. Tools like DALL-E and Google’s text-to-image AI turn any random text into illustrations. They try hard to make it as realistic as possible, but more often than not, the resulting images are bizarre.
So, have you ever thought about what happens when you put song lyrics into a tool like this? Jason Scott did. He took lyrics of a song about data encryption (how appropriate), let AI turn them into images and made everything into a video. The result – pure, unrefined nightmare-material that. But if you’re anything like me – you’re going to absolutely love it!
