Paul Gore has done an amazing job on this, looks amazing, engaging, great 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:

mm.. love it.... kinda reminds me the burning man from SPIKE JONZE.. right guys??

tblunt, February 9, 2006 at 10:52:06 PM CET

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.

mothman, February 10, 2006 at 2:32:21 AM CET

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.

vidiot, February 10, 2006 at 1:28:24 PM CET

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!

progosk, February 10, 2006 at 1:46:23 PM CET

i second the vidiot. (especially the case given the political pretense...)

kevathens, February 10, 2006 at 2:26:14 PM CET

Bad ending, vid kinda lulled. Liked it otherwise.

sandcrab, February 10, 2006 at 3:59:56 PM CET

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.

gaps, February 10, 2006 at 4:46:53 PM CET

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.

presidentofvice, February 10, 2006 at 6:50:32 PM CET

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!

c-dub, February 12, 2006 at 9:04:45 AM CET

link doesnt seem to work, any other links??

harveyk, February 22, 2006 at 12:35:09 AM CET

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.

gwan, February 22, 2006 at 1:00:24 AM CET

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.

highspeed, February 24, 2006 at 12:05:42 AM CET

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

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.
