Hi everyone, do any of you know any good examples of really nicely nice split screen action??? Moving panes etc...
Any help would be much appreciated,
The best place for information on split screen film is James Seo's excellent site: www.splitscreen.us .
Wow, that site is awesome. Anyone know of any work online about how the visual cortex processes split screens / average numbers of independent visual feeds a brain can process at once and what that's doing to the Brodman parts of the brain? Like I think psychiatrists have proven that the average person can only process two audio streams of conversation and decipher them intelligibly at once. I wonder what it is for visuals, given that we all have much more processing power dedicated to that chunk. On the odd occasion I've called a live edit I'm always amazed it even works.
The best split screen ever committed to music video is Michel Gondry's Cibo Matto video for Sugar Water. I don't think there's any disagreement on that.
Bloody great!!! Thanks guys :)
I love videos.antville....
Here's a PoP-ish example: Tegan & Sara "I Hear Noises" video www.mtv.com
The whole split-screen thing was heavily used in rap videos from the late 90's, early 00's. You know, the whole video-slice thing, they all did it. Hype has been using B-roll footage in the letterbox-bars in his latest videos, which hasn't proven to be his best idea, although somewhat interesting.
There have been a ton of these, so here's a couple off the top of my head
Porno For Pyros "Pets" (Dayton/Faris) Presidents of the USA "Some Postman" (Grant Marshall) Semisonic "Closing Time" (Applebaum) Destiny's Child "Emotion" (Lawrence) Hexstatic has done a few Los Del Rio "Macarena" (right?) Amon Tobin "4 Ton Mantis" (Sigismondi) Amel Larrieux "Get Up" (I think) (Sigismondi)
How about.. Madlib "Slim's Return" - and anything Blue Note related (St. Germain? that new Gabin vid?)
Hehe don't get me started!
