dropvid

Yesterday we shared an amazing time-lapse music video spanning 24-hours on a Parisian rooftop.  While the video did, in fact, make my jaw “drop” (there’s a pun coming), it got me thinking about one of the most amazing music videos I’ve ever seen: “Drop” by The Pharcyde.

A Musician Spent 24 Hours Posing for this Amazing Time-Lapse Music Video

Every once in a while someone gets really, really creative and it makes our jaws drop. Such is the case with UK pop artist Dan Black’s timelapse music video for his song called “Hearts.”

In short, the video (created by the folks at Chic & Artistic) features Black and company on a Parisian rooftop — for a full 24 hours. That’s right, one full day of shooting (from 11AM to 11AM!).

Combining Time-Lapse and Stop Motion to Create a Mind-Bending Music Video

We’ve seen some pretty creative music videos in the past, ranging from a microscopic time-lapse to what looked to be a Google Street View music video. The latest creative musical endeavor that has caught our eye is a video by the California group The Grouch & Eligh (or G&E for short).

Working together with Colorado-based DJ Pretty Lights, they put together a video that combines traditional time-lapse and hyper lapse with stop motion for a mind-bending ‘lyric lapse’ experience similar to what we saw in Marc Donahue and Sean Michael Williams’ Dream Music video. Read more…

Band Helps NPR Move Its ‘Tiny Desk’ and Makes an Epic Music Video in the Process

It took 223 takes, 8 hard-boiled eggs, 5 microphones, 2 days and 1 camera, but Bob Boilen’s Tiny Desk — which is featured in the Boilen-created Tiny Desk Concert series on NPR Music — has officially been moved to NPR’s new headquarters.

Why did it take so much video? Because Boilen decided to film a Tiny Desk Concert featuring the band OK Go during the move, producing the above music/moving video in the process. Read more…

Music Video Features “Bullet Time” Using 625 Pinhole Cameras and 35mm Film

We’ve featured quite a few “bullet time” projects in the past that involve freezing time using rigs of tens or hundreds of cameras, but have you ever seen the technique done with pinhole cameras? That’s what you’ll see in the music video shown above. It’s for the song “Wasting My Young Years” by London Grammar.

Cool Music Video Made Up of 5,000 Stills is Equal Parts Creative and Creepy

It’s always a good idea to get to know your neighbors. Case in point: photographer David Vincent Wolf recently found himself directing a mind-bending music video for the band Portugal. The Man, and all because his neighbor Rich Holtzman happens to be both the manager of the band and the father of his daughter’s preschool classmate. Read more…

Entire Story Told Through Reflections in an Eyeball

Last Saturday, we featured a creative music video by the band James Wallace and the Naked Light that was shot entirely in one take in the reflection of a fan’s eyeball. It was a wonderfully simple video and an approach we hadn’t seen before in a music video.

But shortly after featuring that video, we were told that a similar idea had actually been done before by the Italian band K-Conjog, when they made the award-winning video for their song Qwerty. Read more…

Cinemagraph-style Music Video Blends Motion and Still Photography

Directors Ian & Cooper created this clever music video for the song “Back to Me” by Joel Compass using cinemagraph-style shots. Each scene is a strange fusion of motion picture and still photography, as some areas look like a photograph, while other portions look like video footage. If you’re not familiar with the term “cinemagraph,” check out other examples of the technique we’ve featured in the past.
