What If...... - Morgan Dawn Livejournal:The Here And Now
The Here And Now
What If......
What if all music was licensed under the Creative Commons (allowing non-commercial remix). What if a group of vidders fell in love with such an album and decided to make a 'vid album' - one vid for each song? What if the vidders chose fandoms ranging from The Hunger Games to Thor to Star Trek Deep Space 9 to Pacific Rim to Doctor Who and more.?

You don't have to wonder. In 2013 a group of 8 vidders decided to take Vienna Teng's album Aims - which has been released under the Creative Commons License - and make fanvids for the songs.

The result: The Aims Vid Album. Vids are both streaming and downloadable and some have subtitle options. Take a moment to watch and leave feedback.

When the album was released, Vienna Teng explained why she chose the Creative Commons license:
"The CD has a Creative Commons license instead of a standard copyright, which means the music can be shared to some extent. "We live in an age where people can easily copy things. People can create a mix, sing along and post that on YouTube, or pass it along to a friend, as long as there is respect for the original.Source.

The Daily Dot wrote an article about the vid album in 2014.
"Thanks to the international nature of the Aims project, the fanvid album has only aired once in its entirety, at the VidUKon
 convention this year. It was an emotional moment for all involved, the little community of collaborators coming together for the first time."Source.

And last, this was posted to Vienna Teng's Facebook after she read the Daily Dot article:
"Why Creative Commons is awesome, Exhibit A: a fanvid of every song on Aims. Thanks to all the collaborators & creators who made this—wish I could've been there at VidUKon to meet you all!" Source.
