New Bright Eyes video - "Hot Knives" dir. Patrick Daughters
I live for Daughters' videos but this one feels like a lost opportunity. The back projection of dyes mixed in water is really cool concept but the video just stays like a flat performance video w/ the band looking a bit too much like the Flaming Lips.
this makes it's a real drag for having had to wait to release a video i shot in january...
this is strange
this video for Bright Eyes is very simliar to a video for RX Bandits that came out like 6 months ago....Some shots are identical
if you go with only 46 seconds left in this video that exact shot is in RX Bandits and at 32 seconds left that shot is also in RX bandits (like the exact same shot and same basic premise)
the theme and style is pretty similiar just imbelished a bit since they probably had more of a budget I think.
I'm curious what others think?
here is a link to RX Bandits and let me know if it seems similiar:
it is also 20 videos down on this page
another excellent video from patrick. simple idea pushed to its limit, beautifully paced and shot.
I'm not too fond of their new image.
pretty hodge-podge (the inks were really bland in there); and, yeah ronster (&vs), quite uncanny that (back)projections are so, erm, back. i much prefer the rx bandits one.
back projections have and will always be used in music videos. this video doesnt tred any new ground and for that reason i find it disappointing. however, it could have been saved by tying together the idea of the background being generated live during the song much more. overall, well shot but feels like i've seen it before one too many times.
Has the Patrick Daughters video for Mika been shelved. I heard it is pretty awful...
i heard mika keeps asking for changes, and they are having trouble getting a picture lock.
Live Video feed projections are definitely nothing new. But I think he simply did a nice job. No its not ground breaking but I'm not so sure thats really the goal. I don't think a director has to break new ground every time to achieve success. Somehow this feels quite right for the track. I like the RX bandits as well for what it is.
For anyone interested in seeing a really slick job of putting a band in front of projections check out this Paul Fedor video for Hoobastank from several yeats ago.
Shit I did say Hoobastank. Next thing ya know I'll say Limp Biscuit. Yikes.
Hootie and The Blowfish.
I am a bit lost on this one, sure.
