Stop Motion Glory

I Love Music Videos,
They seem to be this perfect packaging for new ideas, experimental techniques and neat little stories set to a cool soundtrack. Of course like with everything there are duds, Clips cut uncreatively from performance footage or 4 minutes of sheer self indulgence and wankerism but in the most part they allow filmmakers to do what they love to do and have fun with it, just look at clips from bands like Weezer and OK GO as well as the collections of videos created by Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry.

The Reason for this rant is because Gotye has released his new video for “Easy Way Out” This is a cool video, one worthy of its own post. Directed by Darcy Prendergast who has created videos for Eskimo Joe, Art vs Science and also created Gotye’s “Eyes Wide Open” Video. The Stop Motion in it is incredible and well planned out, and in some ways gives the format a different feel almost to the point where you question if it is stop motion at all. The Set Design is detailed and allows for many watchings.

Bout time for some Feedback so tell me, whats your favorite music video?

Just a Short one for now…

Haven’t been doing much photo stuffs of late as I’ve been busy with assignments and whatnot. However a while back i did another photo shoot with my pal Sarah and so here’s some of the shots we got.
Time to get this workload off my back and pull out the camera again.

But i can’t just leave you guys with only a few piccies to look at, so how bout some music?

First up a new one from Laura Marling, Loving this track with an awesome twist in style at the end which just works so perfectly.

Also a new one from Florence and the Machine, this song has taken me a few listens to fully get into it, but its good and its Florence so that’s enough for me.

and finally an awesome cover of the Muppets theme with OK Go, this is off a new cover album of artists doing songs from the Muppets, love the video for this more than the cover itself, but still its amazing and having listened to the whole album fully recommend it!

Well that’s all from me for now, back to Designing things and whatnot…
