I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness "The Owl" Dir./Anim. Emmanuel Ho
i think it was great, but i did have to fast forward through it.
i generally don't like most animated videos, but this is definitely an exception. rad!
Stunning (as in, I'm stunned). Not a style I've seen animated before.
Very cool. Slick. Reminds me of Japanese Animation and The Raven with the tables turned.
fischinger fans will want to check out the geometrical abstract expressionism of his silent short shapepron.
Nicely directed but unfortunately it doesn't get anywhere... it needs something in the end to make it more interesting, it falls flat at as it is.
Very cool. Ironically, coincidentally, the only thing holding it back is that cord. It was brilliant to identify it with the guitar strumming, but then it syncs the bird's movements with the strum, and throws me off. A small but vital issue to deal with. Again the animation is so exact that one needs to see it on TV..
I agree with citrus - very stylish and I liked the symbolism of the raven flying to the light and the owl sitting in darkness, but I don't understand why lipstick and crap kept falling in through the window.
This really captures the mood of the song with graphical precision.
Brilliant. Great work on the site too.
how quick you all are to reward something that lacks ambition in the first place.
"lacks ambition"? care to expound?
Scratch my last comment, I've gotten over that issue. The video's animation is stunning (right), but the direction is not as impactive as Pyramid Song or as intoxicating as Peter Gabriel's Zaar. Certainly a notable vid, though.
Peter Gabriel's "Zaar" video (mov/mpg) was created by Stefan Roloff in 1987, originally as his second Moving Painting "Lunch". Gabriel's music, composed for Scorcese's "The Last Temptation of Christ" (1988), was only added later. The video is featured in Phillip Noyce's (awful) "The Bone Collector" (1999). Emmanuel Ho's site now here, "The Owl" here and "Shapepron" (2004) here.
