This is one of the niftier hopeful music videos that I’ve found seeing that it was co-directed by Jupiter One’s lead singer. Furthermore, it was created entirely by the band itself. Based on the description, you’ll learn that the entirety of the stop-motion graphic segments of the video were shot with a camera in a living room. Furthermore, the subway scenes were DIY 5 Nintendo Console Portable Mods You Have to See We all know that Nintendo is the master of the handheld, but what if the company's consoles became handhelds?

This music video by Manchester Orchestra is beautifully composed and makes use of a ton of visual effects. Why is it on a tech blog, though? Well, simply put, it won the Vimeo Music Video Award 2012.

Every VideoSong by PomplaMoose

PomplaMoose is my favorite web-based band, and as complicated as their music (paired with video) is, I believe their creations are do-able. I’m certainly not going to come out and say, “Oh! This is really easy!” However, what this band does is simply video-record every single instrument they play for a song What To Consider When Buying A DAB Digital Radio Radio has moved on considerably over the past few years.

    Personally, the jump cuts in the "Countdown" video were too fast for me, I ended up minimising the window so I wouldn't get a headache. But the fact that they made the video without a massive budget is pretty impressive.
