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) ideas on the filming technique here, anyone (it was a prep for the RHCP)?

Rex the Dog "Prototype"

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:

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.

Most likely the light effects are made with trapcode plug ins for after fx or combustion. Trapcode 3d stroke plus trapcode shine. check here:

lightFx originally done

probably done using

...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.
