This isn’t new, but we just stumbled across it, and thought it would provide some comic relief going into the weekend. It’s a live, one-take, in-front-of-an-audience music video (for the song “zZz is playing: Grip”) that is also a demonstration of common motion graphics techniques and video transitions, performed by folks on a trampoline. Ya gotta watch it more than once to pick up all the details, like the musicians on the left and right (the drummer on the left is also the singer), and the person painting the progress bar in real time underneath. Hang around until the end to see that it was indeed in front of an audience.
If you want more, here is the video of preparation, and here is a video about the shoot itself. You get to see extra details not visible in the compressed video, such as the “names” on the shirts of the musicians…
Some background on the project from its creators:
The project was commissioned by the TAX-videoclipfonds. The important criteria were that the audience at the opening would be able to witness the whole shoot, and that the videoclip would be added to the exhibition immediately after the shoot. This meant we had no option to reshoot or edit if something went wrong. This made the whole crew so focussed that we performed even better than any of us could have imagined.
Have a great weekend –
