    I'm not worthy of a Hoff music video.

    Two years ago I got a call for a music video. He told me that he has seen one of my wildlife videos and got super excited. I told him that I am not into music videos but may take it up as a creative challenge if the music excites me. I met that guy and heard him singing in his car. However, he wanted me to shoot the video and send it to him. He told me that whatever money we get when the music becomes a hit, we will share. However, he was not keen on me hosting it in my youtube channel. He was trying to fool me and take away all credits. So I flatly told him no. Last year that guy finally got a chance to sing in a Bollywood film. I can't live with the feeling of being cheated.

    To all the people who have shared similar stories, I feel one should keep on doing good work. Your time will come. Don't regret that you have lost out on some opportunity. If you believe in Karma, think that your time hasn't come. Even if you would have done good work for that musician, you wouldn't have got the credit.

    Without reading this thread I think it holds true for any country/market that payment for music videos suck. It's something you do because you like it, if you want money you do commercials.

No, you probably won't understand it, but that's okay, I find that part of the charm. Unfortunately the label posted it as interlaced, so that kind of ruins it. Interlace is the spawn of Satan and Hitler, and fortunately it is finally dying and sinking into the infernal hell where it always belonged.

    That one takes me back. This is Sony Avex (well what I knew it as back in the day), and I shot a few MVs for them. Here's how it worked, they'd see promising group / artist, record a song - shoot a video and release that one track and or shop it around on promo gigs to get the artists profile up as a test to see if the artist had legs commercially.
