This is great! AB's music videos usually are pretty uncreative, so this way we actually have a chance to see a creative music video for Cry of Achilles.

You think a lot of people will try to do this? Along with Lover I have my doubts with people participation and lack of options to choose from

Well, $7,000 is a better incentive than $4,200 and this is a better song to get creative with.

So do people have to actually make and shoot the video before a winner is chosen? I can't imagine they'll have many entries if you've got to do $7000 worth of work before even having a chance of getting paid, if your video doesn't get chosen you're out of pocket.

What's Next? Blackbird? After remembering that comment from Mark about making videos for BB and COA at some point, I don't think it's too far fetched you'll be seeing a contest for BB pop up sooner or later.

I hope the band uses the video, but in conjunction with a performance shot music video, makes the video more complete imo. lover too, but more dark and moody.

A music video doesn't have to be expensive to be good.. I know a few other bands who've done something like this, and most of the stuff I've seen is usually not that expensive. If you're creative and you're good in what you're doing you can make something really special. Time is another thing of course.

I really hope they don't.. Depends on the video they pick of course, but pieces of the story are going to miss if they cut out a few shots and paste in shots of the band.

My thoughts exactly. Come on guys, gotta find some time to do it yourselves. Plus if these are going to be story videos, wouldn't it be better for the band members to be in it rather than some paid 20 year old actors?

I sort of agree, if they would do some good music videos with a good director, i would be happy. This is better than nothing though!

Not "act" but be featured in the video. It wouldn't be like a 30 STM video, but just some kind of story video with the song over the top of it.

I'd rather have some arty video, like this video a fan made for a John Mayer song:

No actors, no band playing along.. Just a great, creative idea executed really well.
