Video premieres from The Revelers + more

Published on: November 1st, 2017

The New Orleans Video Access Center (NOVAC) paired up with three local artists to create new music videos. Now in its third year, the program pairs talented local filmmakers with students (ages 17 & up) who want to learn all about the creative process behind music video production. The program is offered in both New Orleans and Baton Rouge, and supported by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation. Check out the videos below!

This handcrafted marionette puppet music video was made in a Baton Rouge garage with local crew. Going along with the playful nature of this swamp pop classic, the puppet characters travel from the juke joint to outer space to the surface of the moon all while being followed by a rougarou (the Cajun werewolf). Because The Revelers were on tour all summer, they were thankful to have puppet versions of themselves to represent the band in the video.



Lil Teddy has been in NOVAC's youth media programming for the past few years. He and his friends, along with some talented adult mentors, produced this video featuring him and his family on his high school graduation day as part of NOVAC's Creative Counsel after school program. 



New Orleans based Balkan folk band, Blato Zlato, recorded a traditional Bulgarian folk song that tells the story of a young woman being tricked into marriage. Filmed in City Park and the French Quarter, the music video shows off a surprisingly strong Balkan folk community that exists in New Orleans.
