Fantastic!

well, not quite so.
a lighter version - with more of a tickle than a punch line - of smack my bitch up, shot with what i assume is a 10.5mm and a rig, which becomes quite tedious to watch after one minute or so.
         
otc, September 18, 2009 1:09:27 AM CEST
I enjoyed it the whole way through though I think I lost the narrative after a while. Must of been fun to shoot.
         
piore, September 18, 2009 1:31:20 AM CEST
i was totally in it. but i thought ending would've been much better if hand reached up and grabbed her boob. like it was all just to get laid.
that wouldve been cooler IMO

This is great. Track is banging. Very interesting, held my attention all the way. Nice photography. Great edit. I'm in love with that girl.

it's been done before and it's been done better. cute girl, though.
         
Alanedit, September 19, 2009 7:35:41 AM CEST
No it didn't hold my attention despite being beautifully shot.

Because the track is too laid back for a POV video, and it reminds me too much of Smack My Bitch Up. That's the thing about such a great video is that either you reinvent it if that video is a conscious inspiration. I love the cinematography and the best thing of it.

Great work on the tech credits, handicap was the track it's all a matter of taste though.
         
NickyGoose, September 19, 2009 10:30:09 PM CEST
Show me one POV video (BESIDES Prodigy) that's done this kind of thing better. I don't believe it exists.

If you're not feeling it, I question your overall taste.

To me, the laid back track with the crazy visuals fits nice. If it was an uppity vibe then THAT would be a rip off of "SMBU".

I'll take this over every single video Beyonce has ever made.
         
Bunny Greenhouse, September 20, 2009 12:23:07 AM CEST
yeah, the POV is done well.
yeah, the girl is well cute.
but it's so cheeseball and preachy it comes off like a low-budget PSA.

& this is despite my love for inventive (even gimmicky) cinematography. the plot plays out like a high-school english assignment (esp. w/ the CYOA-esque flashbacks), & when the big stylistic precedent is the Prodigy vid, maybe it's wise to try an idea that doesn't involve troublemaking?

that being said, i am curious, are there other good POV MVs?
         
progosk, September 20, 2009 1:20:54 AM CEST
erm, i liked it. (great edit.)
         
hipgnosist, September 20, 2009 2:33:05 AM CEST
Very nice work & a pretty fresh take on pov too.
More Run Lola Run than SMBU.
The "plot" could have used some rinnging out,
but overall a well executed effort.

Dig it.

"POV" stands for "point of view" which doesn't actually define anything. So technically this is a "1st person POV". That said, here is an interesting thread from metafilter talking about 1st person POV in films (and yes, they mention the Prodigy video as well): ask.metafilter.com
         
Alanedit, September 20, 2009 3:36:36 AM CEST


"POV" as in shot defines what we are looking at, represented by the camera. It means everything.

Still like the video, it's very good stuff. It could benefit from less sweetness and more balls. That's just my opinion, it does it well.

Oh for example of POV done well (as well as it's finest example) look above.

And below.


         
otc, September 20, 2009 5:34:52 AM CEST
The most technically accomplished version I've seen is guy ritchie's nike ad (another awesome edit). Also Chris Milk did it twice, once with the the exact same camera rig.
         
Alanedit, September 20, 2009 8:15:57 AM CEST
Yeah I agree on that Nike Ad but we're talking music videos, not a fan of the Chris Milk ones for some reason (overrated).
         
NickyGoose, September 22, 2009 5:25:48 PM CEST
To all pretentious snobs - I know what POV means. Assumed we all understood I was referring to music videos, and ONLY music videos, that employed a 1st person POV the entire song.

("Strange Days" is a letdown IMO by the way)

So far only @Alanedit has posted an additional POV video besides SMBU, and it was the cute but still inferior Lily Allen "FU" vid.

I'll still take "Luv Deluxe" just behind SMBU. For me the combo of the music and said imagery really works magically.

So yeah, hit me with more of your brilliant choices for top POV vids and I'll tell you why you're wrong!
