Hey guys! James Dahlbender here, and welcome to my Music Video Production Competition!


#1. What is the music we're gonna make a video of?

We're gonna be making a music video of Puffy AmiYumi's True Asia using Baby Einstein videography techniques (like toys, puppets, stock footage, etc.).

#2. What is Baby Einstein

Baby Einstein is an American franchise and line of multimedia products, including home video programs, CDs, books, flash cards, toys, and baby gear that specialize in interactive activities for infants and toddlers under three years old, created by Julie Aigner-Clark. The franchise is produced by The Baby Einstein Company (formerly known as I Think I Can Productions).

The videos show simple patterns, puppet shows, and familiar objects, such as everyday items, animals, and toys that are often accompanied by reorchestrated classical music written by composers such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, Johann Sebastian Bach, Antonio Vivaldi, Johannes Brahms, George Frederic Handel, and many others, as well as some traditional rhymes.

#3. Where can I get some things to shoot some toys and puppets?

You can find some on eBay, Amazon, and Etsy

#4. What's the reward?

You get a drawing by yours truly!

#5. What is Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi?

Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi follows the adventures of two best friends: Ami Onuki , a peppy, optimistic, and cheerful girly girl, and Yumi Yoshimura, a cynical, sarcastic, and grumpy tomboy. Both are based on the Japanese pop duo Puffy AmiYumi, but with different appearances and exaggerated personalities. They travel around the world on their customized tour bus along with their well-intentioned yet greedy manager Kaz Harada. From rocking out at a concert to hanging out in their hometown of Tokyo, the duo take the world by storm with their musical talent, trend-setting style, and humor, dishing out lessons in J-pop justice and establishing the international language of "cool" along the way.
