One of the bands I work with have had their music video picked up by VEVO, while not what I would call my best work – it is a highly stylised video that incorporated all the people and locations the band wanted. Their album is due out on Itunes later this year, which features images taken by myself.
History of Vevo –
The concept for Vevo was described as being a Hulu for music videos, with the goal being to attract more high-end advertisers. The site’s other revenue sources include a merchandise store and referral links to purchase viewed songs on Amazon MP3 and iTunes. UMG acquired the domain name vevo.com on 20 November 2008. SME reached a deal to add its content to the site in June 2009. The site went live on December 8, 2009, and that same month became the number one most visited music site in the US, overtaking MySpace Music. In June 2012, Vevo launched its Certified awards, which honors artists with at least 100 million views on Vevo and its partners (including YouTube) through special features on the Vevo website.
