My band as paper dolls.

    my friend helped out our band with promo
    by creating us as paper dolls!!! :bassist:

    I really like them, and we were thinking about using a shot of them in the album as a who's who shot. Also, I wanted to make a little stage for them and have them draw attention
    to our album and merch at our shows.

    The band really did not get too into it at all when I suggested it to them about 8 months back. Now they seem to really like them. :):hyper:

    What do you guys think? Is this something that could work or is it too cheesy?? :bag:

    Yeah, I am going to pick up a video camera next month for the band. My friend also can do stop motion!!! so that may actually be possible!!

    He said the only payment is that Evertheory now has to make him a theme song for a show or his website in the future--I said OK!

    Our album is still in the works, and the myspace has placeholder music on it, but soon I will be going to youtube with these and some other ideas...

    It was my buddy, a good friend who I went to school with and now work with as well. He spent the last 8 months making them and putting it all together based on photos of my band.
    He is a real mad scientist when it comes to this kind of thing.

    It was a cool process because he knew nothing about amps, basses, effects, and since he spent a lot of time making the stuff, he asked a lot of questions and was able to add little extras IE (electro harmonix logos, and names of effects, the rear of my bass has the active battery compartment, the back of mu Sunn amp has little orange glowing things that represent the tubes, etc)
    So it was a fun time and a learning process! :bassist:

    I see a trend about to happen. Your friend could market the concept.
    When I saw "paper dolls" I had in mind those sheets of printed clothing that you'd cut out and dress cardboard figures with. Great for when you change genres. Hmmm...

    He does a lot of papercraft stuff, but he said for sure the Evertheory dolls are his most complex work to date and probably forever. Lots and lots of little accessories and parts.

    I really appreciate all of his hard work, and we are happy to see such a good set created!!!
  14. Amazing impressive work! It's got a great pop atmosphere about it.
    Have fun, Sunn.

    I know.
    I told him this immediately after he made my Fender Bass--it was so good he could take more orders!!!

    Glad to see that Evertheory is the first band that I know of that has paper dolls made of them :)

    He stopped short of making the PA--he felt that it took too much away from the characters so he stuck with the traditional setup.
