1) Choose a song by queen (any, not ness' a single)
2) think of a concept music video

Mine is 'Ride the wild wind'.
Roger is racing around a track in a racing car with the uniform on
There are clips with all the guys in an open top sports car cruising down a motorway in the sun with freddie leaning back, arms open to the wind.
There are also clips of freddie on a motorbike with a girl on the back, wearing full leathers.
Where the band perform, they are on a cliff top over looking the sea, and its windy and they all wear black. Mooodyyyyy!

How about you lot? any ideas?

I already see Freddie sitting on a bike, in leather... He barely could walk in 1991, but riding a motorbike wasn't a problem for him!

I think oppo wants you to "create" a video in an ideal world ie one where Freddie wasn't ill.

For My Melancholy Blues, I think the band would be onstage, performing to an almost empty bar, with Freddie singing and playing the piano. And then, at the end, they all get up to leave, but nobody really responds, since they weren't focusing at all on the performance.

Re-reading it, that seems kind of depressing!

Oh, this was a serious topic... well then!

Yeah, the motorcycling seems a tad unlikely.

I did this 11 years ago and actually created the video. It's for I'm Going Slightly Mad and is relatively simple. Just me lip syncing the song in 2 different settings, with inserts of me acting like an idiot from other video stuff I'd done. And I used the edited version from GHII to save myself 14 seconds worth of work.

I used a broom for my guitar and an upright vacuum for the mic stand. Some wigs and make-up involved too. I do have it preserved on DVD-R now, but no way to rip & share it, not that I would anyway ;)

lets be honest, can ANYBODY be that good? :D
Yeah, this was supposed to be if they were all alive and well and able. im not trying to be sick minded or anything :)
Im not a very good poster (sure you all worked it out) Im only good at theoretical ideas. I dont like to ask about fact, i think it stirrs things too much for my liking sometimes!

Keep Passing the Open Windows

Freddie wandering through an office building of some sort, starting in the lobby and making his way up using elevators and stairs. Intercut with all 4 members popping into the offices of bored, melancholy employees and encouraging them to follow on their carefree romp through the building. Climax is a performance on the roof and perhaps a big group hug afterwards.

ok

Ogre battle

all 4 guys are on horses in armour *dreamy sigh*
and they ride out to the mountains. A huge army of knights join them. Then suddenly a drum crash and the ogres come streaming down the mountains. They cant go east so they gotta go south. At the screams there is a massacre as the guys bravely fight swinging their axes and swords heavily.
Brian has a bow and arrow but an ogre breaks it and corners him at some rocks. Suddenly an electric guitar falls from the sky, and he plays it. the loudness of it kills the ogre. and it lights up and the riffs explode killing the ogres.
But Brian is far away from the other guys, he runs towards them with his guitar but an ogre steals his guitar and the guys are trying their best to slay off the ogres.
Then John sees Brian in trouble and swings his axe as it rurns in to a bass guitar and lasers shoot from the strings slaying the ogres that surround Brian.
Roger's daggers turn in to drumsticks made of solid crystal which hold powers which shoot ice and freezes the ogres. He uses them and Freddie sings on top of a mountain while this is going on and tells the story. Close up on Freddie on "keep a lookout" bit.
After all the screaming they all lay on the ground injured. Everyone had been killed but the four as they rise from the mud and get on their horses and ride off in to the sunset holding their legendary weapons up high.

Gunpowder Gelatine, I like your idea cause I can really picture it. Nice mood.

Can anyone on here animate? Perhaps an animation alongside the song? I wish I'd invested more time in animation when I was young. *Sighs*

Peace,
Adam.

Geez I totally missed the point of this didn't I? I did describe my 'personal Queen music video' though. I should start reading the posts and not just the subject lines.

I would have loved it if they turned QUEEN II into a movie. Wouldn't that be so cool?

Plot: set in a strange land of sorcerors and kings. The white Queen's power is fading. The Black Queen has been trying to destroy her. The Fairy Folk have gathered round the new moon shine to think of a way to help the white queen overcome the evil powers of the black queen and free her slaves! There are massive battles involving ogres, victories, and celebrations as the crown of the new freed kingdom is passed from Father to Son.

Drama 2004, ****, 90 minutes.





Freddie: "Yes, we'll have a great big cock fly over the crowd!"

Roadies: "Yeah! Great Idea!"

Freddie: "And it will fly into a great big mouth with a moustache!"

That actually sounds pretty good, man.

the way you interpreted this topic is actually quite cool! Maybe we should set up a page where you can upload you own Queen videos- either ones featuring yourself like yours, or your own montages. I often put together collages of different bits of Queen footage to my favourite tracks- sometimes they even look quite proffessional!

Fight from the Inside:


Simple performance video. But when Roger sings "Attack from the rear" you see a shot of freddie in his local gay bar, wearing a black leather suit "attacking" a gay bikers rear.
