San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 31, 2011
Sunshine, warm fields and bustling SoCal beaches embody the youthful innocence found in pop sensation Memphis High’s latest music video, “Criminal Love” which is now being converted to stereoscopic 3D by PassmoreLab.
For the first time, Memphis High comes to life in 3D. In their video Criminal Love, the pop duo of 16-year old Witt McKay and 17-year old Grant Vogelfanger are in full stereoscopic 3D amidst bustling traffic, hoisting signs up to passing cars and wooing girls on the beach.
Criminal Love’s 3D production was supplied by San Diego-based 3D production/post house PassmoreLab. The company is well versed when it comes to 3D music videos and has positioned itself as the “go to” company for bands and artists that want to distribute content through the very latest 3D delivery platforms. PassmoreLab recently teamed up with Grammy-Award winning, Linkin Park and Warner Bros. Records to convert the video for Linkin Park’s hit “Iridescent” into 3D. The song appears on the movie soundtrack of 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon.' In the last year, PassmoreLab has worked on 3D music videos for recording artists such as Slash, Plain White T’s and Osaka Popstar.
Thanks to power management company The Collective, Memphis High is being touted as the “next Jonas Brothers” and the offering of Criminal Love in a stereoscopic format will help the band connect with its target audience (notably, the 2008 3D film documenting the Jonas Brothers’ "Burning Up" concert tour, grossed over $23 million in worldwide sales). “Last month we saw the release of the first 3Denabled smart phone, the HTC Evo 3D. With the recent launch of the Nintendo 3DS and with LG’s Thrill and Samsung’s Galaxy 3D hitting the U.S. market soon, the entire music industry is excited about the growing opportunities to deliver 3D music videos via ‘glasses-free’ handheld devices,” said James Humann, Executive Producer with PassmoreLab. “Band managers and labels are seeing 3D as a visual innovation that can transform a music video from primarily a marketing device used to promote record sales into a legitimate source of consumer entertainment.”
Memphis High's video for Criminal Love is currently running on MTV-U as a Freshman feature, in store video networks at Wet Seal, Journeys and at all Six Flags locations. The band currently has features in Popstar Magazine, Seventeen Magazine and on iHeartRadio online. For the past month the band has been releasing new singles every Tuesday and, on August 2, 2011, the band will release their full EP “From You to Me” on iTunes.
The 3D music video for Criminal Love is now available for digital distribution through PassmoreLab on multiple platforms including mobile devices, video on demand, television broadcast and theatrical.
