Why do some bands and musicians even have videos? I mean, where do they play them? MTV doesnt really show anything, MTV2 shows what MTV shows only 24 hours a day... Do videos actually get played in other parts of the world? Sometimes it seems like a bunch of money is spent making a video, but who gets to see it? They play it once and thats it.

I was so excited when MTV2 first started and they actually played good videos. Now it's just garbage. Every once in while they'll play something good on 120 minutes which seems to only be on at 2 am. I get Much music and even though it's a Canadian station they sometimes play videos from bands that are practically unknown from the US (Dredg, etc.)

Considering your people never even heard of Kylie Minogue until last year, you should be aware that there is large market outside the US,. namely the UK, which spreads to germania and down to australia. sheesh. So to answer another one of your increasingly banal questions, some bands make videos cos they don't give a shit what you think.

This is true. Nick Cave has said that he doesn't like making videos because no matter the artistic merit they may possess, he always feels the plain truth of it is he's "being filmed exhibiting his desire to sell". Even with that intention a whole fuckload of excellent videos don't get shown on MTV, but they get shown everywhere else where the networks are not too concerned with being pop-popular (outside the US), is my point.

actually, I was really surprised about music videos here in England. The british students are opsessed w/ american pop stars. They watch a program similar to MTV, but it has numbers you can call and request a certain video, which for a rather large charge, will be automatically played on your screen.
These students love talking about these annoying American pop stars like Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, etc. I got here, and was kind of upset, because no one really listens to the classic southern rock that I pretty much listen to. Doesn't anyone like CCR here? hehe...

I just watched some on ifilm that were pretty good. Sigur Ros - Untitled 1 and Spoon - Everything Hits at Once. The storyline of the Spoon one isn't anything great, but it's animated by the woman that did the sequence in Waking Life where Wiley talks to the red head in the dark. I'm obsessed with Waking Life and that animation technique so I loved it.

It's really funny because I just arrived in the UK two days ago and I just turned on the TV and who should be on but CCR. The number of bizarre british pop acts here though is ridiculous. You have no idea how many times I've heard the T.A.T.U. song (that and the eminem song, probably due to the release of 8 Mile here last month). Yeah, but seriously, british pop is strange.

Post by: mogwai on February 18, 2004, 12:17:19 PM
When MTV launched on August 1, 1981, the first music video it played was "Video Killed the Radio Star" by The Buggles. What an awful video. In those days, all a music video needed was jiggly girls in bikinis, big hair, fast cars, and if you were lucky, jiggly girls with big hair driving fast cars. No huge costs, just a little something to complement the listening experience.

Then came along Michael Jackson's "Thriller" in 1983. "Thriller" wasn't a music video, it was a full-fledged crotch-grabbing experience. At 14 minutes long, "Thriller" suddenly opened the doors of creativity, proving that a music video could be more about the video and less about the music. Today, companies will spend millions of dollars to make a 3-minute video (most of it spent on computer animation and huge sets). We are proud to present a list of opulent indulgence: the 10 most expensive music videos of all time.

To be fair, though, we've instituted some ground rules:

1. A group/artist can only appear once on the list. Known as the Michael Jackson Amendment, this rule makes the list a whole lot more interesting. But artists doing a one-time collaboration with others are fair game (allowing Janet Jackson to pop up 3 times).


2. If the video is for a song from a movie, then it doesn't count. Otherwise, Celine Dion's warbling of "My Heart Will Go On" would win hands down (because it included expensive scenes from Titanic). To qualify, the images in the video must have been created solely for that video.

3. Studios lie about how much they spend. They don't want to seem too wasteful, so our figures are probably a little off. But it's an interesting list anyway, so deal with it.

10. "Girlfriend/Boyfriend"
Cost: $1,500,000+
Artist: Blackstreet (featuring Janet Jackson)
This video is completely computer animated, taking place inside a pinball machine. The basic "plot" is that Blackstreet and Janet Jackson feel like pinballs, bouncing uncontrollably through their lives, when it's all really just a game. What made it so expensive? Well, computer animation ain't cheap, and neither is Janet Jackson (the same cannot be said about sibling Latoya . . .)

Janet's wardrobe: $10,000
Blackstreet's wardrobe: $25,000
Janet's travel costs: $50,000
Blackstreet's travel costs: $200,000
3-D animation costs: $600,000

9. "November Rain"
Cost: $1,500,000+
Artist: Guns N' Roses

An 11-minute video extravaganza, this video tells the supposed tale of singer Axl Rose and model Stephanie Seymour getting married, having a party, and living out their lives together until death. And all it took was 11 minutes? . . . A classy video that combines storytelling with live concert performances, Guns N' Roses actually paid for the video themselves, to insure that it looked as they envisioned.

Renting a symphony orchestra: $25,000
Specially constructed chapel: $150,000
Wedding dress: $8,000
Specially constructed coffin: $8,000

8. "Unpretty"
Cost: $1,600,000+
Artist: TLC

While their video "Waterfalls" was technologically more groundbreaking, "Unpretty" ended up costing more because the group argued over every little detail (almost doubling the projected cost). The story of the video starts out with women in a plastic surgeon's office contemplating breast implants, but they somehow get involved in a gang fight in a back alley. All the while, TLC sits on these weirdo floating pods while doing yoga chants. Nobody said these videos have to make sense . . .

Floating yoga pods: $60,000
Field of purple flowers: $50,000
Laptop computer animating breast enhancements: $63,000
Flying robot camera: $35,000
Hairstyling: $11,000
Makeup: $25,000
Costumes: $11,000

7. "She's a Bitch"
Cost: $2,000,000+
Artist: Missy Elliot
For some videos, you have no idea where the money went. What made it cost so much? Greedy accountant skim off the top? Tons of footage never used? Missy Elliot's "She's a Bitch" is a perfect example of such confusion. A rap song that essentially features Miss Missy mugging for the camera in a rubber body suit (or dancing on an M-shaped stage with her Missy-ettes), how this video ended up costing $2 mil is a mystery.

Missy Elliot's rubber wardrobe: $10,500
Glow-in-the-dark cape: $3,500
M-shaped stage: $30,000
Silver suits for the extras: $12,000
Total set: $850,000
Makeup: $6,000
Special effects for a stormy sky: $20,000

6. "Miami"
Cost: $2,000,000+
Artist: Will Smith

Will Smith is notorious for spending googobs on his music videos, especially because they often serve the dual purpose of promoting his movies. The video to "Wild Wild West" cost $3 million alone, and the video to "Men In Black" is also up there. Of course, such videos aren't allowed placement on our list, but they go to show that Will Smith is no stranger to spending money on his videos. For "Miami," Smith chose to follow the ever-popular path of using computer morphing techniques, sending the budget sky-rocketing. The entire video consists of the Fresh Prince morphing from location to location (we counted at least 40 morphs), and each morph costs about $14,000. The sad thing is, the song ain't that great.

Private jet rental: $15,000
Each morph transition: $14,000 (and there were least 40 of these)
Floating Miami set: $500,000
Models: $10,000
Choreography: $200,000

5. "Larger Than Life"
Cost: $2,100,000+
Artist: Backstreet Boys

Fine, fine, they're all hotties. No use denying it. But unlike their competitor über-boybands *NSync and 98°, the Backstreet Boys are actually pretty good (they were even nominated for a Grammy for their second smash album, "Millennium," proving that they have industry respect). The Backstreet Boys made more money in 1999 than any other entertainer, $66 million, so dropping $2 mil on a video is chump change. In "Larger Than Life," the story is that the B-Boys are space-fighting robots in some bizarro Star Wars meets Voltron cyberworld. Replete with computer animation and special effects, it doesn't make much sense but it looks pretty cool.

Cryogenic chamber model: $20,000
Flying surfboard scene at beginning: $90,000
3-D animated models: $45,000
Robot costumes for the B-Boys: $56,000
Exterior shot of the space station: $70,000
Dance stage: $80,000
The cost to fly the crew to the set: $150,000
Director's fee: $150,000 (for just 4 days of shooting)
Total special effects: $600,000

4. "What's It Gonna Be"
Cost: $2,400,000+
Artist: Busta Rhymes (featuring Janet Jackson)

A tremendously cool video involving tons of special effects that Busta Rhymes co-directed. The story involves Busta (as some kind of morphy glass creature) hookin' up with Janet (also a morphy glass creature). They sing, they morph, they sing, and they morph a little more, and at the end of the video, they both explode into little glass shards. Gross. But in a good way.

The visuals are reminiscent of movies like The Abyss and Terminator 2: Judgment Day in which a humanoid creature is able to change its appearance, yet still appear completely believable. In "What's It Gonna Be," Janet and Busta are constantly mushing around each other, sometimes transparent (like glass), sometimes reflective (like mirrors). Believe us, you can see where the $2.4 million went.

Virtual set: $100,000
Each morph: $30,000 (boy, did these add up . . .)
Busta's glass costume: $40,000
Janet and Busta's explosion: $20,000

3. "Heartbreaker"
Cost: $2,500,000+
Artist: Mariah Carey

Here's a video that makes almost no sense. Mariah starts out on a movie date with B-level star Jerry O'Connell, when some hoodlums start throwing popcorn at them. To escape the trauma, Mariah runs to the bathroom, where she encounters her evil twin (portrayed by Mariah in a black wig). Good Mariah and Evil Mariah start getting all Jackie Chan on each other, when they turn into cartoons. Then the video ends.

Much like Missy Elliot's "She's a Bitch," we have no idea why this video turned out to be so expensive. We can only suspect that the first version stunk, so they probably did some re-shooting. We would've hated to see the first version, though.

Movie theater rental: $100,000
Mansion rental (in the movie): $40,000
Hairstyling: $13,000
Dog and its trainer: $6,000
Fight coordinator: $7,000
Animation: $80,000
Jerry O'Connell's cameo fee: $10,000

2. "Victory"
Cost: $2,700,000+
Artist: Puff Daddy (featuring Notorious B.I.G. & Busta Rhymes)

"Victory," like 5 others of the videos on this list, is a rap video, and what a rap video "Victory" is. It has everything, including exploding airplanes, suicidal leaps from buildings, helicopters, and shootouts. Like much of Puff Daddy's repertoire, this video is about a man's escape from the police who are wrongly accusing him of a crime. As P.D. runs across the city's rooftops, a bunch of snobs in a party look out the window at the ensuing action, obviously wishing that they had such excitement in their lives. And playing through the background of the entire video is an opera aria that lends the entire video a dramatic flair. While it may not have much computer animation, this video definitely has a "movie feel" to it; this level of detail is what makes the video cost so much, and seem so cool.

Building an airplane and blowing it up: $55,000
Pyrotechnic special effects: $100,000
Artificial rain: $10,000
Helicopter rental: $21,000
Stuntman fee: $5,000 per jump from building to building
Security on the set: $10,000

1. "Scream"
Cost: $7,000,000+
Artist: Michael Jackson (featuring Janet Jackson)

Michael Jackson's videos have always been ridiculously expensive. In 1983, he spent $800,000 on "Thriller," which would be about $1.4 million today. But remember that before "Thriller," no one even came close to spending that kind of money, and he had to do it with limited technological capabilities. As technology improved, Jacko's videos became more expensive, spending over $1.2 million on "Black or White" in 1992, and even more on "Remember The Time." But if he can keep an oxygen chamber, a petting zoo, the Elephant Man's bones, and an entire plastic surgery team in his mansion, it's certainly no biggie to drop another $7 mil on a video with his sister.

"Scream's" $7,000,000 price tag is more than twice as much as the next most expensive music video (Puff Daddy's "Victory" at $2.7 million), and it's easy to see why: he spent $5 million alone on 11 sets. Yet while watching the video, it all seems incredibly wasteful, not coming close to the film quality of "Thriller", "November Rain," or "Victory."

Computer-generated spaceship: $65,000
Breaking guitars: $53,000
Morphing artworks: $50,000
Michael's makeup: $3,000
Janet's makeup: $8,000 a day
Choreography: $40,000
Giant video screen: $80,000
Lighting: $175,000
Cost per day: $636,000 (about 11 days)
Total cost of 11 sets: $5,000,000

Speaking of animation, I'm surprised you didn't mention your namesakes' video Hunted By A Freak (http://www.mogwai.co.uk/video/16.mov) (10 MB Quicktime file).  I've only watched it once...  it's horrifying, sad, and dreamlike all at once.  I'm glad I saw it, but it'd be hard for me to watch it again.

it's not a perfect video, for one thing Karin Dreijer is only in it at the end dressed like shakespeare (above), just in time to watch the video fall apart. and it only gets more inexplicable from there.. is she leaking milk? hairy apples? the flying chick is not too attractive either. there's an abundance of pretentious imagery.

yet despite all these things i looked everywhere for a link to share the video, it's been my favourite song of the year since the album leaked.

these caps above are my favourite shot of the vid, at my favourite part of the song, wherein the director (some dude Martin de Thurah who also did a video for Mew) at least got the colours right. perfect even. it's sort of like Frozen but not, well the good bits anyway. if the whole thing had been the shot above cut with the first cap way up there, it woulda been the best video for sure.

I liked everything except for the last minute or so, once things start getting weird (the apple, the collar, etc.). The house and the floating and the milk leaking? Beautiful. Like the song.

He is Danish and lives in Copenhagen. He is doing videos for all the big artists here. I'm not a big fan of his work. I think his videos aren't connecting with the music and therefore steals the focus. A musicvideo should be 90% music and 10% visual. But no doubt that this guy will make videos for all the stars in a couple of years.

"All These Things that I've Done" by The Killers. It's Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! with a little bit of an O.C. vibe. It's clever and kinda sexy. I like The Killers a lot to begin with, though, so that might be a requirement for enjoying this one.

I used to set the VCR to tape 120 minutes everytime it was on before i went to bed so i could wake up and watch the videos i missed before school. If i'm not mistaken..that's probably where i saw "Just" for the first time as well...great video btw.

"Maps" by Yeah Yeah Yeahs. (I know, I know--it's old. Well, I just saw it for the first time.) What with the close-ups on the changing color filters alternating with the close-ups of Karen O's face bathed in said colors, I'd say it's cf. A Woman is a Woman.

Have you seen the video for "Y Control"?  Absolutely insane.  It's basically the band in a grimy room surrounded by little kids doing incredibly disturbing things (cutting and disembowling and what-have-you).  It's been a while since I saw it, so I don't remember a lot of details, just that I'm glad I wasn't watching it alone late at night.

Mogwai...I certainly applaud that selection.

My two favorite videos are Pearl Jam's "Do the Evolution" and Radiohead's "No Surprises". They're both incredible (and I'm certainly hypocritical). I just saw Radiohead and the entire crowd responded to No Surprises to a degree I was unprepared for...but in a good way.

But I still love in the Almost Famous audio commentary when Cameron Crowe discusses how Crudup was really into Nothingman during the shoot. Brilliant.

"Juicebox" leaked and set an underwhelming first impression of First Impressions in late '05, so in blog years it was ages ago -- but when a Lucasfilm art director (Warren Fu) says he's "determined" and inspired, why not take him up on his intergalactic cinema chops. The vid is composed "entirely of CGI ... [paying] homage to Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey as well as the NASA spacecrafts of the 1970's." After a cool use of the abrupt outro cut from Impressions track "Ize Of The World," Fu's film unfolds, giving a futuristic spin on possibly the best Strokes song to date (i.e. 1977 A.D.)."

for the first minute i was thinking "this is woeful", the reason why fan clips probly shouldn't appear in this thread.. then the actual gimmick began and i gotta say it's pretty well done. dude handling the camera had the easiest job of keeping the guy's head out of the shot and he failed miserably, so boo-urns to him.. but the idea was great, i especially like the combination with -ER words.

Bat For Lashes - "What's A Girl To Do"
(http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y154/pubrick/vidcaps/furrybike07.jpg)
watch on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1wnOUH2jk8) or download in better quality (22.6MB, QT mov) (http://extreme.colonelblimp.com/directors/dougalwilson/movies/Batforlashes_Whatsagirltodo.mov) if you like it. 

this is a video directed by Dougal Wilson who has previously made vids for Benny Benassi, The Streets, and Jarvis.
(http://extreme.colonelblimp.com/directors/dougalwilson/images/DW_benassi_satisfaction.jpg)(http://extreme.colonelblimp.com/directors/dougalwilson/images/DW_streets_fit.jpg)(http://extreme.colonelblimp.com/directors/dougalwilson/images/DW_jarvis_dontlet.jpg)
all downloadable from his page on the colonel blimp site. (http://www.colonelblimp.com/directors/dougalwilson/)

i became a really big fan of the Benassi ("Satisfaction") because it was such a brilliant improvement on its original video which consisted of pretty much a static image of loser nobodies. the new concept by wilson was obvious but it's also one of the best of those made in the last few years. i didn't think much of the streets one or jarvis especially. then i caught this new one for Bat For Lashes late one nite and i was kinda blown away.

it took what i'd seen used in that Feist video  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8Z-DIAthbM) and made it spooky. i don't think the video has much to do with the lyrical content but it matches the music perfectly in atmosphere. i love the lights that pass by the far right/left edges of the frame and enhance the foreground via matching-coloured lens flares. most ppl would prolly prefer the feist video cos it looks more complicated but this hits a different spot just as well if not better.

the song's great too.

This was from earlier in the year, but I had just heard it.  I remembered hearing Robyn came out with a new CD, but being the girl that did "Show Me Love," I didn't really take it seriously.

I guess that's all behind her now and she's always been a huge fan of breakbeats and grime.  The sad part is... it's actually pretty cool.  I wish she would've at least changed her name so I wouldn't have to admit listening to Robyn.

Comparing the Mountain Goats to MadTV certainly parallels the ratio of great moments in a heavily prolific run.

Though Mountain Goats edges MadTV out since he's had some good albums, whereas MadTV has yet to have any consistent season episode.

this is one of those hip hop videos that artists dont seem to make anymore.  its filmed in a very low grade style to remove any of the gloss and glamor of todays more popular artists.  the video (well, short film) shows the reality of greed, lust, violence, and lost innocence of a dice game gone wrong.

what starts off as a harmless phone call turns into tragedy via gritty, realistic special effects, lesbianism, and a "macguffin" discused as a shadowy figure wearing a bandana

coldplay took the same idea into crazy extravagance:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYtk1Z0UUuE

it's weird, i am amazed by the imagination of lower-budget stuff like the Oren Lavie video, but when i see a huge band do the same thing my mind switches to cynical: i can't believe they would actually do it the hard way. so i set out to find some proof that coldplay (as i like to call him) was only there for a minute to get into the right positions and costumes and the geniuses at Shynola would do the rest over several painstaking days.. it didn't take long to be proven wrong, here's a short quote about the process, for anyone interested:


Talk us through how you created the video.
... The drawing was incredibly laborious. By the end, the tips of my fingers were all numb and I had worn a weird dent into one finger. They still feel a little odd now, weeks later. However, our discomfort was nothing compared to the uncomfortable poses we made Chris Martin hold for long tortuous minutes. He has pretty good core body strength - imagine having to stay straight as an arrow, balanced on a small skateboard at your waist... It was all pretty nerve-wracking. Shynola has always been 4 people, but late last year our friend and colleague Gideon died suddenly after contracting a virus. So now we are 3 and not so sure of ourselves anymore. On top of that, we hadn't made a music video in 4 years. So here we were, rusty, plunging into a technically difficult shoot, one man down, and it's for the biggest band on the planet! Luckily, we had a great producer, and the label seemed more confident than us that everything would be great. And, as it happened, it was.

and here's an excellent article (http://www.promonews.tv/2009/09/23/breaking-news-shynola-respond-to-strawberry-swing-%E2%80%9Csimilarities%E2%80%9D-claims/comment-page-1/) on the technique, their influences, and the ensuing controversy surrounding claims of plagiarism (must be a coldplay thing).
Title: Re: Favorite Music Videos
Post by: ᾦɐļᵲʊʂ on October 20, 2009, 02:27:12 AM
I can't even believe the controversy, it's so stupid.  The video [Andy J Gallagher - Something Else] isn't terrible, but it suffers from the same problems of "Her Morning Elegance," there isn't really a story just a gimmick.  Shynola really knows how to make something work, and their Coldplay video really works.  Except for the song, but whaddyagonnado?

None of them have anything on Blu (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uuGaqLT-gO4), though.

LCD Soundsystem - Drunk Girls

Dir-Spike Jonze & James Murphy

having seen it 50 times this week, i knew it was only a matter of time before this got posted.

didn't know it was jonze, just that it was awesome. highly watchable. everyone is riding these guys nuts over here cos it's their last album and their touring soon. seriously only know them from Daft Punk Is Playing At My House which as i've said already in this thread..

Quote from: mogwai
lcd soundsystem "daft punk is playing at my house"

what's her deal with outkast? in her first video she flat out ripped off Andre 3000's shtick (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHgbzNHVg0c#t=45s) and now she's got Big Boi rapping about asscracks? not complaining tho, cos the video's amazing.

apparently directed by someone called Wendy Morgan whose other videos are too forgettable to link, i think she got lucky with these dancers cos even tho she does feature choreography in a lot of her other work it's not this nice.

yeah i know about her, i read her wikipedia page.

i just think a clip that boring should have come with a warning. especially when the relevant part was 3mins into it and then a bit at the end. you can set the starting time on youtube clips for halfway or whatever to facilitate this, rather than exposing some of us to extremely tedious avant-garde that is near impossible to watch unprepared.

This is just a personal list, mostly to draw attention to a few that don't normally get attention.

Margot & The Nuclear So and So's - Quiet as a Mouse (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=na7xJ7wQ-iw) (perfect band, perfect song, perfect video)

Nico Vega - Gravity (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOkKufaZ84s) (there's something legitimately shocking to me about the violence in this video, which is saying a lot from someone as jaded as I am.  I don't know what it is, but I like it)

Death Cab for Cutie - Little Bribes (http://rossching.com/little-bribes/) (fan-made video, better than 99% of professional music videos)

Coldplay - Life in Technicolor II (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXSovfzyx28) (yeah, I know, Coldplay... but this song and video are both great)

Ellie Goulding - Starry-Eyed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PULdPep_xfs) (the video's nothing special, but this artist and this song in particular are my favorite new things)

A Fine Frenzy - Blow Away (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7N5L1yCFUc) (the ultimate feel-good song, and an utterly charming video)

Talking Heads have a lot of good videos, most David Byrne had a hand in directing, or co-directing. True Stories is interesting, too. It really needs a Widescreen release with a bonus CD with all the actor versions of the songs.

great concept, great cast.

the director's site (http://www.tom.as/) explains a bit about where it came from:

Diesel "The Duel"

Promo made for the band Dancing Pigeons, that Diesel supports through Diesel U:Music.
A longer short film version will be released on Diesel.com soon.
The film is based on Diesel’s theme for their new collection - Fire & Water.

he's got a few other noteworthy projects, including a short film called "Sorry i'm late" (http://vimeo.com/4862670) made using the seemingly obligatory method (overhead shot of stop motion live animation) used in countless videos and short films since time began. good for him tho, cos he seems to put in a lot of hard work, whoever he is.

Of course, man.  It made me check out the rest of the album that it's on, which was sort of lackluster compared to that single.  Having checked out more of his stuff, I liked Alegranza!.

He was supposed to be at Pitchfork this year but by some twist of fate, he couldn't show up, which really sucks to find out now but whaddya gonna do.

Skinemax is Koyaanisqatsi for a generation raised on late night television and B-movie VHS tapes. It's long form entertainment for short attention spans.

METZ - "Wet Blanket"


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krGDNbT4CSE


I really liked this video, it suits the music. For me it kind of had a Harmony Korine feel to it. And I've been drawn to music that tends to blow eardrums to shit lately so win win.

As a Seattle native, I'm contractually obligated to hype for Macklemore, but this song is legitimately the catchiest thing around.

last week or so was art walk in culver city, and i was there for that, and eric wareheim was there for a comedy central premiere of some show or another. i was standing outside the premiere venue and wareheim came out with his gf (?) and they walked down the street. then back up the street and into an alley. i had to go through the alley to get to my car, and wareheim was at the end of the alley saying "i'm sorry, i've lost the car" in an earnest way and without reply from the girl. they turned and walked back through the alley. i got in my car and drove back through the alley, and saw wareheim walking down the street i'd already seen him walking down previously

seemed really wareheimy of him, seemed like life imitating art

I love RiFF RAFF's music videos. If you haven't seen Spring Breakers yet, then I guess you're not familiar, but James Franco's entire look and persona are based off of him. He's just a really magnetic personality, or maybe I'm stupid...IDK. I think it's interesting to compare Spring Breakers and The Master in how they portray some sort of desirable figure of 'wealth' and 'the dream' but in the end, what do they really have to offer?


anyways... RiFF!

I also like the Massive Attack one but one thing is not clear with me. Is that vodka or wine she's drinking? If it's vodka then it'd be a very short video.
Title: Re: Favorite Music Videos
Post by: wilder on August 04, 2013, 04:30:14 AM
Vodka. She's really drinking for part of it.

Actress Kirsty Shepheard on what it was like to film the video for Live With Me – “It’s about a woman who attempts to drink herself to death as she is desperately unhappy after breaking up with someone. It’s not like a pop video – it’s like a tragic short film. We filmed the first part in the off-licence when the woman I play picks up her booze after work. Over the weekend, she locks herself away in her own flat. We mixed up the shoots, so there are some parts shot on the street where I have to act drunk because they didn’t want me to be under the influence in public. They wanted me to drink to see the changes that actually happen. You can act drunk but it’s not as convincing. I had a hangover – because I mixed my drinks. But it was a controlled situation and I made my own choices as to how much I drank and at what pace” [Daily Record Newspaper - March 2006]

:) for us it's a pleasure that nobudge wants to show the short. kentucker is expanding the movie community, and it's a treasure to be an installment in that process. i chose december for nobudge because october is so halloween, and the mood and emotions of the short are better for a different holiday

i worry that at xixax only doom and gloom await me. i mean if the short is talked about like i'm talked about, i'm fucked. one person here has seen it because the person emailed me when i felt downtrodden and alltheway bounced from here (for like a month). i'll share that person's response and ask the person not to share anything else

I really enjoyed your film.  It has a great pace to it and some fresh editing. As a student of film, I'd like to say it seems modern, but I do not intend this to be a back handed compliment.  I just mean it has this new quality to it, while still maintaining some classical elements.

There's just something there. There's something to it. it works. It's inspiring it really is to see something simple yet complex I don't know that sounds so pretentious but damn it man you've done something

out of place because this isn't the thread! for the thread, back to the suave (http://i.imgur.com/0d28dvD.png)

Don't be a pussy, show it to us! We may talk shit but that's just the envy verbalizing itself. You know we'll be brutally honest, but that's a good thing. We'll support you buddy. 

My only goal for 2014 is to shoot my short. When I get my shit together and finally do it, I'll upload it here first just to let all the hate (masquerading as constructive criticism) and the brutal honesty roll out. After that shitstorm, I will be able to take any criticism effortlessly.  So yeah, don't be scared, let us watch it.

I can barely even rationalize why I'm so obsessed with this song and this video lately, but it's been like a month and I still keep going back to it.  The song is basically straight-white-Bloc-Party, and the video is like a tiny little Larry Clark film, but the two come together in a way that hits me right in the sensibilities.

(Mildly NSFW. I don't know why you're watching music videos at work anyway. Get back to work.)

she's so good. I too like getting high by the beach in order to get away. have you all watched this video? it has contemporary characteristics we could hypothetically chat about. invisible narratives, possible through emotional textures so I adore them, and their photographic equal charms me, one day in the future we might-could chat about "anxious cameras" and the growing popularity of such form.
