Celebrating the indie music video producer — because that’s who we are.

If you make fan-made or unofficial videos then we want to see them. We rate them and award the best ones with the
Barclay Award.

If you want, we will help promote your videos — and you, because
successful producers make great music videos.

Spotlight

Ricky Mouser

The travelog-style of video filming and editing is often thought of as an easy for of video type—more documentary than narrative. It is relegated to the back bin by video creatives because of this. Until you find something that draws you into the scene like a vacuum, sucking into the place you are watching.

How We Rate?

We curate and exhibit indie music videos. From the thousands of student, fan and unofficial videos submitted to YouTube daily, we bring you the best. We rate videos on three criteria: production quality, creativity/performance and editing.

Production

Production

Cinematography, lighting, camera movements, sets, locations — all of these make up what we call “Production Quality.” And it doesn’t mean a big budget. It’s more about great ideas and inspired execution.

Creativity & Performance

Creativity/Performance

We put these two together because they are so linked especially since so many
videos involve acting, singing and dancing. Standing out in the crowd requires creativity, energy and originality.

Production

Editing

Cutting on motion, guiding eye movement, color timing... this is where good
videos come together. Good editing is more than just cutting on the beat, and it
helps good ideas and performances shine.

What comes first when making a music video — the music or the story? If you’re working for a client who has a song, the decision is easy. But if you’re making a fan-made music video or an unofficial music video, the choice is not as simple. Maybe a narrative comes to you when you hear a specific song, or maybe you develop a story and then find the music that fits it best.
