Factory Portland is pleased to announce the addition of a new resource on factoryportland.com. Last month, Portland Music Foundation held a training session entitled “Making Music Videos on a Budget” (excellent job on the new website, btw). The panel included Krister Rollins and Nick Poulin from [dog] and [pony], Adam Flaherty and Spose. As videos were presented on YouTube and Vimeo, I realized there was no single place to view all of the excellent videos from Maine. I spent the days following the PMF lecture trying to find just the right tool to display the videos.
The next task was more time consuming – finding the videos. Some were easy, some I’d seen, many I had not. After the search, I’d gathered 102 conceptual and performance, high quality videos. That being said, there are already more to add! A great feature of the tool being used is that they’re still hosted on YouTube and Vimeo, meaning the musician still gets a hit for every view and all videos retain their copyright. We’re considering this an extension of our already existing musician and business databases.
We hope that you’ll take a look and enjoy what you see and hear in the Maine Music Video gallery. Please use our contact form if you have any additions to list or feedback. We’ll take a look and make sure they meet our standards.
