Planet Funk "Stop Me" by Maki Gherzi

bleak future ahead...


here's the making-of (in italian)

(oh, and: no, it's not a dom&nic/chem. bros. rip-off, it came out nearly the same week)

it reminds me of a short film shot in South Africa in a shanty town with a police robot - cant for the life of me remember but i will try and find the link

for some reason safari downloads those mp4's as .ram files. correct the suffix, and then they work fine. (firefox handles them correctly.)

boost is 'tetra vaal' what you were thinking of?

it was done a few years ago by neill blomkamp who's gone on to some amazing stuff for embassy visual effects.

boost, July 1, 2005 5:11:36 PM CEST

yup thats the one. Blomkamp is a bit of a don.

progosk, July 1, 2005 5:17:01 PM CEST

embassy being where the citroen robot was done. here's the direct link to the tera vaal mov (it's from may 03)

loved it. The ideas are nothing new but it was a great execution. _ "Short Circuit" from the director of "City of God", maybe? Wish there was a tad more story arc, but even the location was enough to make a slick video.

najork, July 2, 2005 10:34:50 PM CEST

yeah, this is great footage.

veronica90, July 3, 2005 6:14:42 AM CEST

I agree that a bit more narrative would lift this work. I found I was skipping though it to get to the end and see what happens and all we get is a "sshhhhh" which was a bit of a let down. It's not nearly as engaging or powerful in terms of style & message as the above mentioned short that this seems to be so heavily inspired by. But the location is great.

najork, July 3, 2005 6:17:53 PM CEST

I think a contrived narrative would detract from the documentary quality of this. These people are scavenging gold and other raw materials from discarded western electronics, subjecting themselves to highly toxic chemicals in the process. The robot is only there to heighten the eeriness of reality.

gwan, July 3, 2005 6:32:26 PM CEST

Western Electronics? Nno no no no...

najork, July 4, 2005 7:32:48 PM CEST

Thrown out by westerners I meant, not manufactured. Of course there would be some more nearby sources too. I read about it recently, not sure where.

Absolutely love this. Napoli should be proud, great vision great record, I mean GREAT record, if this tune does not go luge in UK I will be so shocked, the mood the production is superb. Heard it on Italian radio station when I was snowboarding last year and it got me straight away. Love the mega plazbot recycling itself into his own religion. This is plastic at its very finest ladies and gentlemen, absolutely Killer....well don PF. OH YEAHH...

i'm looking for that video in decent quality...can someone help?

progosk, January 6, 2012 12:54:30 AM CET

depends what you consider decent: 've got a 640x360 1MB/s mp4 (32MB) and a somewhat more compressed 1024x576 800Kb/s mp4 (24MB) kicking 'round. let me know; i can wetransfer.

discoteer, January 6, 2012 1:59:33 AM CET

the 640x360 would be nice.

progosk, January 8, 2012 1:19:38 PM CET

ok - where to send?

discoteer, January 10, 2012 3:04:28 PM CET

you're the best :)
