Bringing Back the Music Video

We curate and exhibit music videos produced by independent artists.
From the thousands of videos submitted to YouTube daily,
we bring you the best.

These are the AI animated, fan-made, unofficial & student music videos made by independent artists that have made our Top-10 list over the last week.
Ranked by TikiKiti ratings.



These are a collection of the top fan-made and unofficial videos we've curated.


Since TikiKiti started we have watched and rated over 60,000 videos. That officially qualifies as a 'buttload.'

About TikiKiti

We Love Indie
Music Producers!

Celebrating the indie fan-made and unofficial music video producer - that’s who we are.

Have fan-made, or unofficial music videos?

We rate the best fan-made and unofficial music video and award the best ones with the Barclay Award.

If you want, we will promote your videos!

Because successful producers make great fan-made and unofficial music videos.

How We Rate?

We rate videos on three criteria: production quality, creativity/performance and editing.



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


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.



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.

A Slice of Life

Sometimes called observational cinema, mainly without a narrator's voice-over. The vérité style comes naturally to many as a way to just record what is happening right in front of them. It combines improvisation with use of the camera to unveil truth or highlight subjects hidden behind reality.

With that established we still ended up with the ten final videos you see here.
