For anyone who devours the web on a daily basis, the biggest problem is too much of a good thing. There's so much extraordinary content - from articles to images, videos and Tweets - that it's almost impossible to keep track of it.
Videos come definitely after the music has been created, but I have always felt, and especially today, that videos are vital in the album process. I think that we live in a very visual era, and if you make a mistake with a video, those images will accompany the song forever.
I have proven that being a perfectionist can be profitable and admirable when creating content across the board: in television, books, newspapers, radio, videos.
I'm spending way too much time test running my Vine videos. I'll go into a room and close the door and be in there for an hour workshopping a Vine video that I never even post. So that's probably a huge time suck.
I listen to archival and historic recordings. I love watching singers. I learned a lot from watching videos.
The Beastie Boys are guys I loved before I met them, and when I got to know them, we started a magazine together, and we started making videos together, and a lot of it came out of us just cracking ourselves up, like going to the fake mustache store and buying fake mustaches.
I basically watch videos online all day long.
The beauty of the space station, and of human spaceflight, is that it is now at a level of maturity where you can invite people on-board, which is what I worked so hard to do on social media and all the videos I made.
My lifetime role model and hero is Freddie Mercury of Queen. His songwriting skills, I cannot even approach, but his showmanship, I learned it from videos.
If it wasn't for 2 Live Crew videos wouldn't look like they do and rappers wouldn't sound like they do.
On the videos for '1234' and 'My Moon My Man' I wanted to make the songs visible. And, really, what way can you make sound visible other than good old naive dancing? I was working with a choreographer, but I'm not a dancer. Any notion of elegance is impossible with me.
With videos, I find I'm better off if I'm playing a role inside of it. The more you do it, the more you understand it.
I always have one foot in the street, so I know not everyone wants to dress like the women they see in music videos.
The downside of videos is that it will put my vision in front of other people, so they might not get the chance to create their own.
It really is no different in the way that we make records and shoot music videos. I don't think of the movie as being a great leap out of my current profession.
When you've got videos up on Web sites that are literally shot the same day, the whole skate community knows right away when new tricks are invented or new techniques are available.
Those involved in the program are interested in how to use photography, videos, the Internet, film, and anything related to communications and transmission of information in the most up-to-date modern ways.
There's not a lot of music videos that are totally, totally disturbing.
I never enjoyed making videos, even though the 'Total Eclipse' video was nominated for a Grammy along with the song. We lost out to the 'Billie Jean' video.
As a mother, I love the Leapster handheld because it really delivers on educating children while they play. My daughter enjoys it because it's fun and touches on all of the activities she is interested in - videos, books and art.
Marcia Gay Harden
YouTube and other sites will bring together all the diverse media which matters to you, from videos of family and friends to news, music, sports, cooking and much, much more.
I truly loved doing the videos, but it has been hard hearing all the time that you're just the Aerosmith chick.
I've made my records and I've done all the interviews. I've done lots of long tours. I've made stupid videos. I've done all that stuff and learned all the lingo and gone to radio stations and shmoozed with DJs on the air and met retail people.
I'm a huge fan of Geffen records. Everything about them - their artists, their videos, their marketing.
But ya have to make videos in the States. Usually ours just look too serious. We haven't got it together.
I made all their videos, apart from the last two, so if you ever see an Abba video on TV then it's my stuff.
C. S. Lewis
