Web 2.0 Global Music Video Website Project Team
Calling all CREATIVE persons! Web 2.0 Global Music Video Website
This group is for individuals interested in working on a project development team of 10-12 creative persons for a multimedia Global Music Video website. The project would run from mid-February to mid-April (approximately 10-12 weeks). Much of the work will be completed using online collaboration tools, so as to fit within everyone’s schedules.
The Project: A music discovery website dedicated to African Diaspora pop music videos. Think MTV meets Putumayo meets iLike. This website exposes people to new music and uses this music to build bridges throughout the African Diaspora and the world. The production of this website will eventually lead to a global internet-television hybrid channel.
The website has three main components: an extensive music video library with a dynamic music discovery tool, a community space for user’s web pages, and a blog. Each music video and audio track is complemented by short, lively, articles, background info, and photos and videos of the region that the music comes from – with much of the site’s content contributed by site users in the region.
