“日々の音色 (Hibi no neiro)” is the name of this new music video for the band SOUR, directed by Japanese designer/art director/video guy Masashi Kawamura. The amount of choreography involved in this video, which is comprised of clips of fans shot on their webcams, is so staggering I don’t know how they possibly could have done it…but I also don’t know how they could have faked it. After the jump, more work from Kawamura, who’s done a lot of other cool, clever stuff in various mediums.
“Goodbye London” is the new music video from Luke Jackson, directed and animated by London-based animator Murray John. It combines stop motion photography of London with some nice hand-drawn animation added with After Effects. “I set out to capture the bitter sweetness of London life, using urban sketchy drawings on walls,” says Mr. John.
I’ll start this post by saying that I’m not a fan of Lady Gaga’s music but you can’t deny that this video is one of the most bizarre, creative, disturbing music videos that has been made in the last couple of years.
Directed by Jonas Åkerlund (Madonna, Prodigy), the epic 8 minute video starts slow but right around the 3 minute mark all hell brakes loose as she is tossed off a balcony and left a bloody mess, riding around in a tricked out wheelchair with a bedazzled neck brace, dancing in crutches and bustier and matching helmet. The costumes alone deserve an award.
