Music videos are so 80s/90s, right? They belong with the era when MTV screened wall-to-wall vids instead of 'reality' TV? Try telling that to the millions who bought Gangnam Style; were they really simply loving the music? 1.6bn (and still climbing) have viewed the video on YT, not to mention the many re-makes (school eg, eg2), viral ads + celeb link-ups (even political protest in Seoul) - and it doesn't matter how legit it is, this nightmare for daydream Beliebers is making a lot of money, even from the parodies + dislikes. All this for a simple dance track that wouldn't have sounded out of place in 1990 ... but had a fun vid. This meme itself was soon displaced by the Harlem Shake. Music vids even cause diseases it seems!

Group pic/info on blogs

A perfect example of what you're aiming to do below: the blogs/YouTube channels of the others in the group AND the company blog all clearly highlighted, and a nice touch of making the pic link to a post on the group.
I've seen one example of pointless 'info' such as nicknames; a bit more maturity should be shown - keep details to your media attributes, which can include past work, festival success, and music tastes, film/TV tastes if you think its relevant (ie this influences your work/ideas). If you're assigning roles (may be more than one for each person), detail what this actually means/entails.
