Film director André Chocron created this beautiful music video for the song “Time is of the essence” by Cold Mailman using time-lapse and tons of time-consuming editing. The time-lapse stills were shot over two weeks using a Canon 7D and Nikon D300, but that wasn’t the difficult part — editing the video to have the apartment buildings serve as equalizers for the music took a whopping three months!

Last year we featured a pretty neat slow motion video shot from a moving train. British band SixToes decided to use the same idea for a music video, placing people all along the platform doing various things, and slowing down 7 seconds of footage into an entire music video.
The idea could be improved on by having what’s happening on the platform reflect what’s being sung in the song, but would require tons of planning and perfect timing — though the end product would be totally mind-boggling.

Fashion photographer David LaChapelle is launching a lawsuit against Rihanna over the controversial music video for her song S&M. LaChapelle alleges that “the music video is directly derived from and substantially similar to the LaChapelle works” and that it copied the “composition, total concept, feel, tone, mood, theme, colors, props, settings, decors, wardrobe and lighting” of eight of his photographs.
“Red Eye Flashes Twice” is a humorous photography-related song by YouTube personality Julian Smith in which he delivers an important public service announcement: don’t be stupid, red eye flashes twice.

After photographer Ross Ching came across Dentsu London’s creative 3D light painting technique with an iPad, he decided to give it a try, combining it with timelapse photography to make a music video for “I’ll Try Anything Once” by The Strokes (seen above). The app he used was Holographium, which you can pick up for $5 from the app store.
OK Go, the kings of viral music videos, just released their latest video for the song “Last Leaf“. It’s a stop motion video in which individual pieces of toast are used as each frame of the animation. 15 still shots (made with the Samsung NX100) were used for each second in the resulting video, with the final video using 2,430 pieces of toast.
Introduced in 1967, the Lite-Brite is a children’s toy where colored pegs are inserted into a black board and then illuminated, resembling LED lights. The new music video for the song SMS by David Crowder Band tells a love story using this toy by animating the story one photograph at a time. Someone must have spent an eternity making changes to the Lite-Brite during the making of this video. The hard work definitely paid off in the end though.
