Dan Epstein writesSeen and Heard Video Showcase

Music videos ruled the eighties and early nineties as mainstream bits of cinema feeding our hungry pop-obsessed culture. Now, the rules have changed, and the video’s descent into the shadows of pop culture has opened doors to genre experimentation.

The Seen and Heard showcase highlights videos that embrace this change and shave the edges of video and music production. Filmmaker and curator of the showcase, Amir George, along with Zach Maderas guitar player for Outer Minds, Nelson Carvajal filmmaker and writer, and Todd Lillithum, program director for Chicago Filmmakers, talked with CHIRP’s Amye Frye about video’s redefinition.

Check out the Seen and Heard Video Music Showcase Friday September 16th at Chicago Filmmakers!

Featured music in the story:
Duran Duran, Girls on Film
Kodachrome, Modern Man, video directed by Nelson Carvajal
Outer Minds, Bohemian Grove, video directed by Chris Anderson
