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.

Cinemagraph-style Music Video Blends Motion and Still Photography

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.

Using a Hand-Held Bullet-Time GoPro Rig to Shoot a Music Video

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…

A Music Video for Photographers That Parodies the Song “Billionaire”

Photographer Michel “Mijonju” Jones just sent us this humorous parody music video that he made with Irwin Wong, based on the song “Billionaire” by Bruno Mars. Here’s the chorus:

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”.
