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.

You might remember PermaGrin Films’ Marc Donahue from his amazing “Dream Music: Part 2″ lyric-lapse video that took 6 hours of work for every 3 seconds of footage. We even shared a behind the scenes look at how that time-lapse was put together, complete with deleted scenes and director commentary.
Dream Music: Part 2 ultimately got some 2 million views on YouTube, but that doesn’t mean that Donahue has slowed down. His most recent project again involved putting together a unique music video, only this time it didn’t take six months to shoot. Instead of tackling time-lapse, “On Smash Live” was filmed using a hand-held bullet-time GoPro array. Read more…
We all know Instagram as an app for retro-filtered photos, but have you ever considered using it to film a video, one photo at a time? That’s what director Arturo Perez Jr. did for the video above. It’s the official music video for the song “Invasión” by Mexico City-based band The Plastics Revolution.
Back in August we shared a mesmerizing stop-motion video titled “Dream Music: Part 2″ and created by Marc Donahue and Sean Michael Williams. The team spent 6-8 hours of work photographing every 3-4 seconds of the 8-minute music video. All in all, the project took six months to complete. The video above presents a behind-the-scenes look at how the whole thing was done, with director’s commentary, deleted scenes, and a bunch of time-lapses of the time-lapse being shot.
Oh every time I close my eyes. I dream to quit my nine to five… yeah… Spending all my savings to buy lights, oh my. I’m gonna feel alive, when I’m a cameraman.
This is actually the second photography-related parody music video that Wong has made. A year ago we also shared his “Pay Me” song based on Justin Bieber’s “Baby”.
Last year, we shared an interesting video showing a blank white room that could be completely transformed in an instant using 3D projections beamed from two projectors overhead. The music video above, created filmmaker Filip Sterckx for the song “Sweater” by Willow, takes the idea of 3D projections in a blank room to a new level. Although it looks like the actor visits all kinds of crazy locations, everything is actually happening inside a small “room” consisting of one white floor and two white walls. The surfaces serve as canvases for imagery beamed from three $1,000 Panasonic PT-LB90 projectors. A moving treadmill on the ground adds to the effect.
It looks like Sterckx chose to go with CGI for the projected imagery, but imagine what this could look like if done with photos and videos of real locations. The next time you need to do a shoot in some exotic location, just buy a few projectors instead of a plane ticket!
Update: Whoa. It looks like Microsoft is trying to patent this kind of thing for consumer use. Imagine enjoying your images in a 360-degree immersive environments!
