BBC ‘Mixital’ Music Video Elements
Posted 4 years ago and submitted by Paul Loudon | Share link:


Vizii? Mixital? What do these words even mean? Well, the BBC have a thing online called Mixital, which has in turn a sub-thing called Vizii:

“Mixital’s a BBC site that turns players and viewers into creators.
We’ve designed easy-to-use tools for young people over 13 years old to make and share things like visuals and stories.”

“Vizii is a new tool aimed at kids and teens, allowing them to ‘visualise’ music and the spoken word and available on the Mixital platform”

So Mixital is the platform and Vizii is the tool. It has taken me a while to get my head around this. Basically kids can make music videos by dragging a load of pre-set elements into a video maker to accompany a music track. I created some of those elements.

The tracks include such artists and bands as The Staycations, Asylums, Blooms, Monogram, Rukhsana Merrise, Rawschac, Alex Vargas, Jayelldee and Lorelai (presumably not to be confused with the Alan Tam song from Armour Of God starring Jackie Chan). If none of this makes sense, go to the site!

I created images of people playing guitars, banging drums, jumping around, and texting (as kids are want to do).

Paul Loudon created approximately 90 artworks for me for a series of children’s reading books. The brief was to create a set of characters in a naturalistic style to complement a more graphic approach within the books. We were extremely happy with the work Paul carried out and how well he hit the marks of the brief. His approach was considered and sympathetic to the series style and age-appropriate. His work was well-timed and amends were carried out promptly. I would definitely work with Paul again.
