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.
