too like his bro's rolling stones vid i think, tho the technique is different.

plus, the band look like twats

excellent! such fun, just the right look, the band is true to their previous nerd-hip image, the whole thing's seriously infectious. best twist yet, if memory serves me right.

(with the runaway success of their previous net-released video, i'd be surprised anyone gets upset this gets snuck out there...)

I still prefer his video for that French dude though, the time lapse shot across America one - that's still the definitive Twist video to me.

Exactly, it's gonna take a while for Twist to beat his Lacquer vid.

me? i was disappointed.

The edits seemed off and too slow. I didn't think the camera placements were clever enough... plus the lighting annoyed me..
I mean, if we're going campy with the camera, might as well introduce different colored lights... I didn't feel the band performed their usual gusto.. if this was them playing at a house party, i highly doubt they would have played this soft.. this is where the technology hurt the performance.

i grade this harshly because i had this idea a while ago and never have had the budget to do it. However, Bravo to Twist for doing it.

Also its pretty hard to follow up the wit and intelligence for "A Million Ways"

You know what's weird? I believe in all honesty that in the music video world, that adage about 5 people having the same idea, but only one capitalizing upon it... That happens a lot.

I am involved with a project that had a ton of treatments written for it, and it was uncanny how many had similar ideas; and these were mostly directors who have bigger reps.

It was just a weird collective unconscious thing but very obviously expressed.

If you have a killer idea - do everything to get it out of your system.

otaku - death cab?

kevathens, December 14, 2005 9:20:36 PM CET

Philip Glass has said a similar thing about when he started out - minimalism was just in the air, he and his contemporaries just allowed it to happen.

No, not Death Cab (gross!). It's a musical adaptaion of a Jennifer Weiner short (In Her Shoes). She's pretty good. It should be REALLY good, I'm going to make it happen. It's about a fat chick with a lot of insecurities who, through love, dieting, and exersize discovers that she's not fat in that 'i eat junk food all day and watch soaps on tv' fat, she's more like 'i'm big boned' kind of fat. Essentially, it's pro BBW short. Drop some comments in support of my new project and let's talk about how good my previous work is and what good taste I have! If you're really cool I'll send you a list of my favorite movies, music videos, and what makes something successful.
