Massive Attack - False Flags (Dir. Paul Gore)
Another new promo for Massive Attack, this time from Paul Gore, filmed using a Vision Phantom.
Paul Gore has done an amazing job on this, looks amazing, engaging, great casting............love it..........
Looks fucking great... who shot this? suffered a little at the end waiting for the big pay off, expecting money shot of bottle exploding..... shot so well you could take a great still from any frame..
What's Vision Phantom?? Has it something to do with High Speed camera's... Can't find much info. Looks amazing though. Anyone good enough to tell me what kinda lenses this fella used? thx.
Love it too. Always a fan of slow motion. I'm wondering about the message, though. Down with the European Union? Or could that flag have been any flag at all?
Awesome video. Information on the camera type can be found here: www.visiblesolutions.com
mm.. love it.... kinda reminds me the burning man from SPIKE JONZE.. right guys??
the phantoms are pretty cool, they used them on the last citizens here and away video
I think this promo is really average, just couldn't help feeling it looks so derivative of so many current directors work in its (over)use of slow motion. It can't really be compared to Spike Jonze's buring man clip (as when he actually made that it was so fresh, which made it so remarkable)...think more Daniel Askill/Reign.
This video has an incredible look to it. The camera work is fantastic. It's just too slow. I mean, it's fantastic to watch the first time, but I could never watch it again.
I feel the slowness adds to the frustration & repression of the character... i'm actually glad they didnt include a 'money shot' of the car exploding, it would've cheapend it. IMO its about externalizing emotion.
sorry but this, like the song, is beautiful and BORING. as per daniel askill's drab video for 'reign'. sorry but i'm bored bored bored. this just smacks of heavyweight (but slightly past it?) band and director having a creative wank fest in the pursuit of cinematic gravitas. gorgeous looking rubbish. hey.. lighten up.. it's pop music!
i second the vidiot. (especially the case given the political pretense...)
Bad ending, vid kinda lulled. Liked it otherwise.
Couldn't watch all the way through. I drink a lot of coffee and this was too slow for me...all the high production value elements are there but it can't prevent this going to snooze town.
Pretty. Too bad the ending shot absolutely decimated anything good it had going for it.
I drink a lot of coffee, too. It's tasty stuff.
I think this video is quite nice. I agree with the mothman about the slowness, it works here. i wouldn't have minded the 'money shot' though... as for a 'big artist' and a 'big director' having a wankfest i'm not sure about all that. From what i understand this video's budget was around £7,000 (as they blew all the money on the glazer vid). I think for the money, they came up with and executed a clever and nice looking video. is it groundbreaking? maybe not, but hey.. lighten up.. it's pop music!
link doesnt seem to work, any other links??
I worked on this vid . It was shot for about £5k with a very small crew in about 6 hours. Its not always about money but it is great to work with good people who love what they do.
I will never understand why poepe encode with quicktime and use a windows codec, it defeats the point of using QT, and noone with a mac can view it.
Promo used the Phantom V5.1 digital high speed video camera from GreenDoorFilms. Phantom Crew Tony Allen, John Hadfield. DOP Robbie Ryan. Most sequences shot at 1,000pps. Serious slo-mo. Camera details www.greendoorfilms.co.uk
this video is a great piece of art: it's compelling and transformative. I can't believe the posts about wanting a 'pay-off' car burn at the end. Surely, the focus on small details - the eyes and the fingers - humanize the minutia of massive public unrest. The choice not to give the Hollywood smash-em-up ending states, clearly, that the object which ultimately takes the most heat isn't the car but the EU. This was made for 5000? Yes please and more of it.
