Apple iPod - Coldplay - Viva la Vida

coldplayThe newest iPod commercial featuring Viva la Vida by Coldplay is just gorgeous! Lots of color and eye candy. It almost looks like a big ad for Trapcode plug-ins. Ha ha. I wonder if that is what they used? It was done by Logan.

guernicaAmazing way to look at art, don'tcha think?

Thanks to Steve Audette for the link.

Their site is running really slow today. It was posted at Motionographer yesterday too and I think the traffic has broken the site!

A Conversation with David Torno and Brandon Parvini about Flight of the Conchords 'Ladies of the World'

Yesterday I had a Conversation with David Torno and Brandon Parvini about Flight of the Conchords' 'Ladies of the World' video they just completed.

It's incredibly funny and has a cool 70s style to it. They rotoscoped the faces of The Conchords onto stunt skaters. They talk about the challenges they had with the project and how they used lots of digital tools to make this really impressive video.

Choosing My Religion - Buen Chico

Live action combined with hand drawn stuff. The video was shot in one day. Very nice work!


Gnarls Barkley - Going On

This video, directed by Wendy Morgan, has some interesting time manipulation on the dancers and a very cool 'Look' (Magic Bullet Looks perhaps?)

The effect in the door was a bit cheesy. Not quite sure about that one. The rest of the video is great, IMHO.


Apple Music Video

Talk about low budget, but this had to be very time consuming. The song is 'Again and Again' by The Bird and the Bee. I'm not sure if this is the official video, but it's
very clever. Mac geeks will totally appreciate it (and the rest of you geeks as well).

Liam Finn - Second Chance and Gather to the Chapel

Excuse me if I gush, but I *LOVE* Liam Finn. Liam is a Kiwi and son to the beloved singer/songwriter Neil Finn, and nephew to Tim Finn. The boy has some musical genius flowing through his veins. (I warned you I would gush).

Liam's video for Second Chance, easily my favorite Liam Finn song, is directed by Angus Sutherland. The video looks as if it was filmed on 8mm and the projected video was video taped, cut up and effected. There are lots of interesting stop motion effects and the video works extremely well for the song, as it crescendos near the end and the speed of the video picks up. I'm very glad to see that the video is as original as the song.

'Gather to the Chapel' video is one continuous shot. This video has gorgeous camera control. Either Liam can run really fast behind the camera and get himself set up for the next shot, or they've really done a great job of matching shots. I'm sure this was programmed camera control, but it's so well done. It's seamless, not like they've made a quick cut on the back of a guys suit as they did in Hitchcock's rope. (Oddly - 'Everyone Gather to the Chapel' and no one is there.)

I had no luck finding any information on the director of this video.
