various by Laurent Briet
another one missing from the directory: Laurent Briet. among other things, he's done RHCP's"fortune faded" and chkchkchk's "hello, is this thing on" (also apparently just completed videos for jem and tori amos); but i find these two more interesting:
Radiohead "Like Spinning Plates" (not aired) homepage.mac.com ideas on the filming technique here, anyone (it was a prep for the RHCP)?
Rex the Dog "Prototype" homepage.mac.com
I admit, the light thing was does look pretty awesome, but I mean, this guy's not that great. His videos aren't necessarily bad, I just don't think that they're anything special.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure on his website (which, last time I checked, was not working, though I'm not sure how you found these links) he mentioned that he did that radiohead clip as a test. "Prototype" is probably his best work, I think anyway.
no, not a-list, but interesting enough. the dog's p.o.v has been done so many times, i think here it's been done very effectively (the ending's a bit of a dud).
the site seems to be working: www.cauchemars.com
any guesses on the technique for the light? i so wish it's in-camera but at the same time i so doubt it...
I've always liked his stuff, but agree w/ both your comments. His best video is for Mellowdrome, of which he won the MVPA "best Under $25K" video. My biggest qualm w/ the site is posting unwieldy 60mb+ mpeg4s.
The light are paintfx matched on 3d space. Probably.
lightFx originally done pipslab.nl
probably done using www.timetrack.com
...but both videos made me yawn.
A guy who did roto work on the Chili Peppers video with the same light painting effect told me it was created in XSI. I was hoping it was some multi-camera interpolation dealy, but oh well. Still cool.
That timetrack thing is rather impresive.
re: the radiohead light video
of course it's in camera. what would be the point if it wasn't?
i come to this argument two years too late, but to set the record straight:
how it's done: set up a matrix style string of cameras through the warehouse. turn off the lights, open up the shutters. draw for as long as you can stand it. then hit the flash - that's what puts in the image of the warehouse itself, and the human (smeared in time) figures throughout.
why i think it's in-camera: a) the human figures, b) the light flares that happen as the flashlights errantly hit the lens now and again, and c) the fact that many of the in-air drawings they did didn't quite work out in the end...
yes, you can tell the chili peppers video is all CG, but I feel pretty confident this one is not. it's not a huge video, but a brilliant experiment IMHO.
