Son Lux’s New Music Video Animated with Hundreds of Pins and Rubberized Thread

May 7, 2015

Christopher Jobson

In this new music video for Son Lux’s “Change Is Everything,” a montage of singing faces and geometric forms is set in motion with hundreds of pins and rubberized thread moved across the surface of foam boards. The clip was created by The Made Shop who used a mixture of rotoscoping and stop motion to bring Son Lux’s new track to life through 4,000 frames over a period of three weeks. In this making of clip, director Nathan Johnson details the arduous and surprisingly painful process of moving pins thousands of times. (via Quipsologies, NPR)

Unconditional Rebel: A 3.5-Minute Music Video Shot in Just 5 Seconds with a High Speed Camera

February 12, 2015

Johnny Waldman

One day in mid-Autumn of last year, 80 extras lined up along a dirt road in an industrial area in France. A car drove by at 50 km/h (about 31 mph) and filmed them engaging in various activities – everything from lighting up a barbecue grill and cutting a metal shopping cart to playing the cymbals and talking on the phone. The action was over, quite literally, in 5 seconds. French filmmaker Guillaume Panariello describes it as “the shortest shooting ever.” But it’s when the footage is slowed down that the magic happens.

The footage was filmed at an incredibly high rate of 1000 frames/second. Once it’s put to slow motion, what happened in 5 seconds unfolds into a 3.5-minute “dreamlike mural.” There were some digital elements later added in the editing room but for the most part this is a single, 5-second shot. It was put to the song “Unconditional Rebel” by French musician Siska. (via PetaPixel)

OK Go’s Latest Music Video Features Hundreds of Umbrella-Wielding Dancers

October 27, 2014

Christopher Jobson

Only four months after their music video for the “The Writing’s on the Wall” filled with optical illusions, OK Go are back with yet another meticulously choreographed dance video for “I Won’t Let You Down.” Filmed in Japan, this new clip features more than a few umbrellas, Honda UNI-CUB personal vehicles (a kind of tiny robo scooter), and a cast of hundreds. Make sure to stick around for the final shot, hard to believe it’s even real, but knowing OK Go, it certainly is.

September 13, 2014

Give it Up is a new track released yesterday by Israeli musician and composer Kutiman. The song was created entirely using vocal and instrument tracks lifted from 23 different YouTube videos of mostly amateur musicians, credited here. If you liked this, you’ll be happy to learn this is just the first track off his upcoming album Thru You Too which the artist says will be comprised entirely of unrelated YouTube videos.

In other composing-music-with-videos news, Andrew Huang created a version of the 80s hit 99 Red Balloons… using only red balloons. Included here for your listening pleasure.
