Bastard Child Video Clip

We purchased a DVD from our last show at the Gig. This is a great service provided by the new owners of the Gig. It’s a pretty cool disc, except for the ridiculous graphics all over it. Being a graphic designer myself, it is really hard for me to overlook.

AlternaTV.tv went a little overboard in their branding effort. What would have been a great tool for bands – a nice edited video of a live performance – is marred by the monstrous logo bug in the corner, and the huge graphics overlayed at the beginning of each song. AlternaTV should take a lesson from VH1 or MTV to do professional, unobtrusive music video title graphics. Still, it is pretty cool.

Check out this clip of Bastard Child and let us know what you think.

  2. That’s what I’m talking about. It is really sad. There is no way to get rid of them. It looks like the original footage has been purged. It’s better than nothing, though. Thanks for the compliment.

  3. It’s not masked right, it’s poorly designed, and it’s huge!!! Must be the sound guys work.

    Yo! Thanks for maintaining such a cool website for UFD, Nels! Great video of the band earlier this year performing for a full house at The Gig!
