“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.
Thanks for the tip, Dean!
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.
The music video for “My Favorite Pillow” by Rhett & Link has the same kind of awesomeness and creativity that made OK Go the kings of viral music videos. Released less than a week ago, the video already has millions of views. It’s a backwards music video in which everything is playing in reverse, but the singers still manage to mouth the words correctly. There’s also 600 pillows used in the video, which obviously creates instant awesomeness in itself.
The music video for Sara Bareilles’ song “King of Anything” has everything contained in Polaroids and contact sheets. The concept is pretty neat. Can you imagine how mind-boggling this video would have been if they had done it in stop-motion with individual Polaroid photos and carefully exposed film strips? That’d be epic.
P.S. Here’s an example of epic contact sheet art from last month.
Here’s a stop-motion music video created by Ian Robertson for a song titled Lyrical Spread by The Chameleon. Robertson uses stop-motion to display the lyrics of the song in a pretty unique way — as jam being spread over bread.
It was created using a Canon 350D, a label printer, hundreds of individual photos, and a healthy dose of patience and creativity.
“Devil in the Detail” is a neat stop-motion music video directed by Souljacker for the band The Ambience Affair. Rather than use video cameras, a Canon 400D was used to shoot over 15,000 still photographs, which were later combined using Final Cut Pro.
When asked in the Vimeo comments how some of the shots were done, Souljacker replied,
[...] most shots where the camera pans with the character we shot bursts of about 60-90 quick consecutive frames at about 3fps… we also got him to alter his movement slightly which I think helped create the strange feel, as for the gear I used my own camera 350d for some tests then borrowed a friends 400d for the main shoot.
It’s neat how the stop-motion gives the video a dreamlike quality.
