Most people here know that BotB has a Twitter account

But did you know that BotB also has a severely underutilized YouTube and Instagram account?

I'm taking the liberty of going to create some official promo material for the site (with puke7's permission first), from bandcamp album trailers to potentially featured artists and maybe new major trailers :o

The first album trailer (of Detroit XI) can be seen here:
|| Twitter
|| Facebook
|| Instagram
(in odd mirrorvision)

But yeah...thoughts on this initiative?

I mean the more help, the merrier :o

Also, I do have puke7's approval on this, and when I say "official," I mostly mean "I'm handing the materials to puke7 for him to post on the BotB social media channels" (otherwise, I would've said unofficial if I knew it wasn't going to be a part of it)

I have some pretty decent editing and animation skills that I can put to use in arranging some trailers for the site, so if anyone wants to help out, then by all means!

I was mostly thinking about some ways to revitalize some of BotB's YouTube and Instagram channels, and I figured a bit of content could be a good start

that's fine; just the phrase "taking the liberty" specifically means doing so without approval

Next album trailer (Summer Chip VII), I'm considering doing something with the top image entries for the trailer; may I have permission to use (and possibly do some modifications, mostly for animation's sake, to) the image entries for the sake of the album trailer?

I don't think you need their permission. You are using their works to make a new work for BotB. BotB has the rights to do this. ;)

I just realized that BotB albums eventually get a price tag with a trend of large majors (Seasonal Chip, Decadent Decade) getting $5 and everything else getting $3.

Should I reflect that in the trailers as well? I know that I put "pay your price" on the Detroit XI one since that was recently released, but I've a feeling that the information would be outdated when the next major release comes out. Maybe I should leave out pricing in the trailer altogether? :o

put a big block of tiny text at the very end that explains the actual details like all the Cool Kids do

(leaving it out works too)

You could write "FREE for a Limited Time"

Basically, if we keep them all free then every time we run out of donloads for the month (200) bandcamp automajically marks everything at $7. ChipChampion came up with the idea of pricing albums once they're not new anymore. It's a pain in the ass to revert manually.
