The Decemberists "O'Valencia" dir. Kurt Nishimura
Shades of Cronenberg = better than expected.
an flv-link for the olde-worlders in da house...?
first off, kudos to mac overdrive - hack or MTV got their shit together?
and 2nd, this was pretty great. Maybe lost a bit of steam towards the end but a pretty brilliant use of minimal footage. It never felt like a contest video - I even bet a commissioner would get fooled.
erm... couple o' storytelling and acting/directing problems aside: i thought that was a really strong piece for its reading of the song, and for the main style choices. way outdid any expectations i had for that contest. kudos, kurt. (thx kayz - no need for the mirror, even.)
cant see the choice of interacting with tv-sets anymore. even though this here was quite intense due to the drama. not bad.
Official: Interacting with tv sets is to 2007 as interacting with polaroids was to 2006.
I'm really glad that bands are able to get videos this good absolutely free!
The future for young videomakers looks bright!
