: Music video "Maybe you're a UFO too"

Dear drone researchers and open minded people,

Three weeks ago, my son Michael made that comment to his brother Jérémy:
Maybe you're a UFO too? Why are you afraid of them?

We had a good laugh :D and I thought that would be a quite nice song theme. So I gave it a shot and came up with what I think is one of my best songs - not mainstream but definitely special! I'm a part time songwriter based near Switzerland. I have done a few music videos in the last 12 months, so I decided it was worth trying to do something memorable for this song, and started doing some research on alien symbols and UFOs.

I came across several websites, and spent a few evenings reading the multiple analysis people have done on the incredible "drone" research, first on some french site ( http://ovnis-usa.com/Blog2007-1-5.htm (http://ovnis-usa.com/Blog2007-1-5.htm) ) then on this site and some more. Waow! There was another great source of inspiration for the video! Last Monday, during a family lunch, my family agreed to shoot a couple of scenes - it came out beautifully. After a few more days and night experiencing with more scenes and the drones imagery (Isaac, Raj, call me when you have a chance I have a few questions to ask you) the music video is almost complete.

You can already see a few stills here: http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewPicture&friendID=148445576&albumId=2590629 (http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewPicture&friendID=148445576&albumId=2590629)

And read the lyrics here: http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendId=148445576&blogId=479603410 (http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendId=148445576&blogId=479603410)

I will let you know when the music video is online, most likely sometimes this week. There will be many scenes that only make sense to the drone passionates ;-)

Talk to you soon!

Very nice!
I like the way you tied the drone story into your (son's) imagination.
Congrats.

PS. the Voyager plaque and LAP overlay at the end was a nice touch.

Thank you for all the nice words! Actually you are the first ones to see it (after my family) so your feedback matters a lot to me. And I'm still day dreaming reading about the drones ;-)

"Can't See Myself (a Vampire's tale)" is also very good, wow.

I'm glad to hear that you read french.

Ca fera une boucle. The tune+voice are very catchy.

lol that's cool.  I gotta put that puppy in my blogs.   I've listened to it four times now and it's really good.  It's one of those tunes that eventually clicks.  I like it a lot.

Hey ordinarypop, I have few questions for you: who made the video-clip? And did you use the "drone-font" like a real alphabet?

Anyway, you are now on the OVNIS-USA blog (http://ovnis-usa.com/)

I hope it's only a beginning for you! ;)

Thanks a lot Eleven August  :)

I've done the video clip myself... it's a lot of work, but also a lot of fun! And yes, I sometimes used the drone font like a real alphabet, using numbers or words inspired from english or french. Most of the writing in the music video has a meaning.

I've checked out your blog, thanks again 8)

Hi guys,

it's been a long time since I did not step by. Well I have some good news (not regarding the drones unfortunately :D):

My very first CD is now available, with the song "Maybe You're a UFO Too?".

Check it out here (http://sites.google.com/site/ordinarypop/) and if you like it, please support me ;)

Good quest!
