I was wondering how would a music video feel like without music. So I made this in about four hours. Enjoy! All credits are at the end of the video. Check my website, http://mgackowski.com for more Music Videos Without Music and info! ----- Woke up and suddenly have to flip through 52 pages of comments. It's one of these mornings, isn't it... Thanks to all of you! :D You might be helping me to get enough motivation to get back to making videos. I've read your comments and I'd like to clear some things up. I AM USING THE OFFICIAL ACAPELLA VERSION. On top of it, I added sound effects by other people (everyone is credited). That was the bulk of the work within those 4 hours. I used LMFAO as a kind of reference to the videos that used to pop up soon after the Party Rock Anthem m/v was released, with the shuffling combined with different songs. First time I've heard Gangnam Style, I thought of Party Rock Anthem - they are really, REALLY similar in style, and I think many people noticed that. So this was just another point to make. I think that was the best song to choose at the end. Also, the lack of sync was caused by some glitch in my editing software. There's a lot of small things which could be fixed, but for me, it was just another fun project to work on during the evening, so I didn't really bother. Thanks again! And yes, I might consider doing more of these, I WILL do some different stuff as well, so subscribe and see for yourselves of you're curious ;)

I'm sorry, I'd just only like to take this opportunity again to say that I was surprised that egoraptor didn't teach the other members of his team how to shoot the melons out of the catapult. This is what killed him for me.

Music by KEN ASHCORP. --- I've seen a lot of people on the Internet requesting this. It's a song that appears at the end of this video: http://youtu.be/xUyajO_G9GE I took the video and its German fandub and managed to put the audio together without getting the voices in the way. All the credits are in the video.

http://mgackowski.com/storyboard The video is a quick run through a basic prototype of a storyboarding app I've made. At its current stage it's more of a proof-of-concept rather than a functional utility. Nevertheless, in order to create it I've done extensive user research, testing, and a lot of trial and error with code. Click the link to find out more, read the development blog, and try out the prototype! I have reached the limit of what I'm able to do alone with this - if you're a company interesting in developing the project further, please contact me through http://mgackowski.com

Possibly I'll compile all these videos and add footage from the Vita premiere.

Consider it a Music Video Without People of sorts. This is the amazing music video by Jonas Odell if Franz Ferdinand never showed up. Check out the original music video: youtu.be/RqTsUtQLRFk I've been working on this "bandless" version between February and April. The sequence consists of 68 compositions, 12 of which were motion graphics I remade entirely. Most of the time though I managed to remove the band by some creative masking and compositing + 11 custom illustrations. Many thanks to Justin Chung for the instrumental version of his brilliant cover! I did this because

Arin Hanson, a member of the secret organization "Egoraptor", acts under false suspicion of letting his team down and comes face to face with a sadistic bird dealer while trying to protect his fiancée. Will he keep the chief video editor's identity a secret while his body discharge clock is ticking? --- This is a little exercise in rapid video editing, which helped me a lot in another project. The video is dedicated to all Ego and Grump fans (JonTron, Suzy and Barry are here too!) http://www.youtube.com/egoraptor If you're looking for more "Music Videos Without Music", I made a couple of new ones and they will be uploaded on different channels, so stay tuned!

An older video, demonstrating a combination of sentence mixing and pitch shifting. I thought I could use the two techniques together with acapella tracks to swap voices of artists. In this case, I took samples from "Take Me Out" by Franz Ferdinand (mostly Alex Kapranos singing), spliced them and played over the M/V for "Whistle For The Choir" by The Fratellis. I thought I would turn that into something bigger, but it's been two years and I'm probably not finishing it. This demonstration is fully non-commercial and falls under Fair Use. Audiovisual content owned by Universal Island Records and Domino Records. This video is not officially endorsed by those companies.

I'm a big fan of Franz Ferdinand, and you can hear all of their songs here: http://www.youtube.com/0FranzFerdinand0 The song I used for sampling is called "Do You Want To" by Franz Ferdinand. The later-appearing guitar and drum samples were made by Michael Bacich. Main riff is obviously borrowed from "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)" by Eurythmics. For the entire intro (up until 1:15), I used the video editing program, Sony Vegas Pro (project name: "franzorama"). The next part features an old public domain commercial, and I aided myself with Acoustica Mixcraft. For the outro, I used Sony Vegas again. I simply find it comfortable to work with video software rather than audio. A huge thanks to Craig Murdo, who encouraged me to finish the track all the way through. See his awesome photographic work at http://craigmurdo.com Photo in the beginning spontaneously taken by Forbes Ramsay. Me, Craig, Forbes and David were returning home from a nightclub. As a Franz Ferdinand fan, I couldn't resist and retouched it to look like the "Tonight" cover. MP3 may or may not be finished, but might be uploaded somewhere in the near future. Ceep coming back! And finally, thanks for visiting this video - enjoy!

This is a comparison of the original Music Video and the "band-removed" version I've been working on between February and April. Consider it a Music Video Without People of sorts. The original music video, directed by Jonas Odell, can be found here: youtu.be/RqTsUtQLRFk I've been working on this "bandless" version since February.
