Petra Jean Phillipson - One Day
Very nice, simple all-in-camera video(I'd guess)for one time David Holmes collaborator, Petra Jean Phillipson. Eerie and beautiful song. Don't know who directed.
this was so...so amazing... you were right. eerie and beautiful indeed. ironically, i just saw a friend's puppet performance on a big stage and it definitely prepared me for this one.
i "accidentally" loaded the video on two windows and the second one somehow started perfectly on the eigth bar a beat behind and my whole room rung out from the harmonies of her voice and the guitars and there was a slightly more prominent swing with the brush snare and shit!! haha! try it!
how was dat done? wires?
Beck's "e-pro" by shynola used this technique too, as did this commercial ( www.boardsmag.com )and probably some other stuff probably.
hey wait! i can totally see these guys in black suits! this video is totally cheating! i want to see an artist that can actually PERFORM gravity-defying dance moves.
the puppet performance i mentioned earlier was an old style japanese drama and they had a team of puppeeters dressed in black animating complex movements with these elaborately decorated puppets. i believe this video is inspired by that.
i'm not sure what it's called or if it's a contemporary thing or not, but it was fackin awesome! really clever and sharply done. when i saw this video for the first time, i was awed all the same and then some!!!
