Green Spirit: dir. Ramon Bloomberg
Just saw this on his site. Is this a music video or a short?
anyone know anything about it?

bill viola meets red riding hood(ie).
paging mr. bloomberg...?
bill viola is 100% spot on, its the crispness of the photography and the slo-mo humanity of it
really nice piece
Beautiful, hyper-real curiosity.
I'll need to watch this some more to try to get the meaning of it, but my immediate reaction is a feeling of enhanced vision. Maybe it is that there is not dissonance from seeing these people at normal speed. Whatever technical tricks it took to make this happen certainly left no fingerprints. Very polished without being shellacked.
uummmm......well.......uummmm.......if you shot some one sneezing, someone, coughing, someone burping at 150fps then it would look fascinating. After about 30seconds i had to fast forward. The VERY abstact narrative could have gone places, should have gone places.
isn't this more than 150fps? what would you say this was shot on/with?
from what i heard.. shot by the mega talented Luke Mcoubry @ 500 - 1,000 fps on a photosonics something or other.
film or dig (phantom, et.al.)?
got to be video, look at the highlights...
would've thought so - p'haps i misread scooby as meaning the ol' 35mil photosonics. i see they've gone digi too...
i think its about a turning point for the young lady - some kind of journey from daughter to independence
helped land ramon a whopping commercial for novotel in paris and he beat off some heavy opposition to do it
not bad when you don't speak french...
Yeah this really is a worthy piece of work. Those blades of grass are soooo juicy. And smallpoint: it's a short, says his site.
This was shot on the phantom from vision research. They're great people and are really trying to make their cameras available for some creative experimentation.
And yes, it was shot by the mega talented Luke McCoubry, with the help of his awesome crew who didn't mind humping generators through the woods/in the rain.
You see on some shots in the forest, the highlights just dont quite hold.......poor latitude.......hey lets turn this this into a debate about the death of film, the rise of the genesis and D20..........blah blah blah...........seriously.........slept on it and looked it over..........BEAUTIFUL
i think that the techniques used in making this are cutting edge and it has the potential for great new applications. but i found the subjects and the storyline way to boring. this could have been one hundred times better by using other more interesting visual elements.
