that was an awesome shoot.

..waiting to watch this on TV, but: how did Tim and Cathy (Refused TV, who produced this) hook up? Seems surprising from this vantage point.

i dig this video. i grew up a fan of Jason and the Argonauts, so im a sucker for that right off the bat. i kinda wish there was less comp'ing, but the skeletons were well done. good to see tim mixing it up with a video.

Ray Harryhausen is what i'm ALL about.

2006 is the year of the skeleton video

Mr Burton doesnt have a production company. Cathy was the best choice to keep it close to home.

yeah I REALLY liked that. First too much hype, then early reviews weren't great. It's a really solid video from a (IMO) uneven director.

But this has been done before:

Removing skin, Robbie Williams / Rock DJ

Everyone's a skeleton, Chemical Brothers / Hey Boy Hey Girl / Dom & Nic

still it felt fresh. Funny, cool, charming.

Close to home indeed

Imagine what they could have done with a bigger budget???!!! The lyrics are downright awful to boot...


         
alan hansen, October 26, 2006 11:28:06 AM CEST

fair do's its pretty nice, but one flaw i think and it's probably expected...

aren't the performance parts of this video are really dull?


         
alan hansen, October 26, 2006 11:28:36 AM CEST

oh and captainmarc.... what part of it was funny?


         
poorboy, October 26, 2006 3:24:15 PM CEST

Cathy also commissioned it, no? I would say that's how they got hooked up.

So the girl is Devon Aoki, who is the guy?

And I liked the video. I'd like to see a thread someday about videos directed by feature film directors.

what do you think about Daft Punk's 'Primetime Of Your Life' video? Pretty scary!


         
captainmarc22, October 26, 2006 10:45:13 PM CEST

funny: when the skeletons are running at eachother in slow-mo and smash into each other on the beach.

I really have been unhappy with Burton's work since Mars Attacks - I HATED Big Fish & Planet of the Apes. Choco Factory was okay. But I was really skeptical about this.

El Capitan - please tell me you liked corpse bride though? You are on the money about the rest of Burton's latter filmography. Is this off topic?


         
framescourer, October 28, 2006 11:36:45 AM CEST

Wish they'd used someone more anonymous than Devon Aoki - I found the modern starlet vs classic film excerpt thing awkward. Thank goodness the rest of it was fun.


         
hassinator, October 30, 2006 12:34:13 PM CET

didn't stylewar do something like this for john spencer blues explosion?

i thought this was ok but the band performance is insipid

Lets be honest. This is well below par for the money and the talent involved. The Killers are O.K but what is Brandon doing with that f*ing limp tash on his lip, IDIOT!

The Chemicals brothers video has better effects and that was made in '99, have we not come on since then. Also if you are going to dare to use Ray Harryhausen's timeless genius in your video you should at least attempt to match his work with stop frame animation and not opt for dull and frankly poor 3D work - no matter how long it takes.

Also an uninspiring in choice of location The Killers have already shot one video in a desert with a large back projected screen, making it a drive-in doesn’t wash for me. The humour is also weak, as is the compositing. Sorry Tim stick to the movies.
