Emily Haines "Our Hell", Dir. Jaron Albertin
Thats going to be ripped off a million times. So cool!
lol Emily's so "hot".
Wicked job Jaron.
nice technique, good song
one fav of the month
a HUGE fan of jaron's work and emily's cd. very interesting where they went with this song for the video. very cool.
That is goddamned mesmerizing. Emily is both gorgeous and ghostly creepy at the same time. And with one simple heat vision effect flipped on!
The last shot is so beautiful and creepy in the same time. Humans as light bulbs. Brillant.
I'm really stunned by this one.
if you download it and take it into any editing program, say after effects and invert it, it looks really cool too!
Terrific. A really horrible, Satrean video. I need a shower.
Beautiful, your best yet.
Just brilliant and beautiful. The people look like they are made of porcelain sometimes. I cant express enough how much I love this, I love Jaron's work but this is definitely his best yet.
Sexy as hell.
Dark and haunting- without being cliched.
My second fave Jaron vid this month.
i like the effect but couldn't get through the whole thing.
Great gag for a music video. Beautiful.
I saw footage with a similar visual effect. Not a music video but I think it was shot with one of these cameras...
i hate to jump on the bandwagon but i seriously love this. performances are spot on and the track is heart breaking.
The only part I really get is the end. The rest I'm clueless on. I like Jaron's Dave Gahan vid, though.
Another ref would be Naqoyqatsi.
a bit negative putting this clip to the song Jaron! lol
This is really very good. Not wanting to take anything away from the video, this is an excellent example of how the best ideas are the most simple. I have to be honest and say that in the past i've not got the hype thats been around some of Jaron's previous work (in fact its made me feel that perhaps I was completely out of touch) but this and Dave Gahan have both been fantastic.
Jesus, Emily simply rocks! And Jaron is her perfect partner to transform her sounds on images.
What! I was bored in the first 15 seconds. WOW!
The infra-red camera use is interesting. Though it doesnt save the video.
And people looking like radioactive lepers is not sexy.
and why clowns?
I love the effect, but this is a gimmick video. Once the initial excitement of the look fades, theres nothing else. It is somewhat rejuvenated by some truly haunting random images, but that is just what they are, random. Or at least they feel that way, maybe thhe director fully had a purpose for the random images. Still a GREAT video. Now i gotta watch this gahan video...
C-dub - if you think about the song (title and lyrics) and then think about why a THERMAL imaging camera was used, you'd understand it's maybe not so much of a gimmick, as it is a good idea.
yes this is a very good video!
Notice that this thermic camera has been used before in an incredible movie called "la vie nouvelle" of philippe grandrieux.
unbelievable that so many are lauding this clip as the 2nd coming. jaron is incredibly talented and it's doing a disservice to his body of work to claim this as a strong piece.
this video is boring, feels unfocused, and it screams gimmick in search of a purpose. albertin's promo for gahan was excellent. now that's making videos. here he lets the song down and rehashes a look that's been done many a time and often to better effect.
for a similar gimmick done much much better check out muse's stockholm syndrome (which i can almost guarantee albertin referenced).
let's keep a talented artist honest, call a spade a spade, and use those spades to dig the grave in which this let-down of a clip belongs.
K: Sorry. :)
And to kind of close out the category..
Super Furry Animals "Juxtapozed With U"
Interpol "NYC (New York Cares)"
Bjork "It's In Our Hands"
Clor "Good Stuff"
The Apes "Black Tears"
Justin Timberlake and 50 Cent "Ayo Technology"
George Michael "Freeek!"
Chemical Brothers "Out of Control"
Garbage "Push It"
I think Stephane Sednaoui messed around with infra-red/thermal stuff a bit.
Ugh. Watch it guys, this is the director you can't critique without the côterie getting viciously involved. To the point where I won't even say what I think. Then again, maybe Antville has been in need of a little drama. ;)
I'll never understand the people that have to look at every body of work they ever see as in one of only two categories: "fucking spectacular" or "soul destroying". Believe it or not some people can just enjoy a video on basic terms and move on.
Agreed. "Hey, if I had to put a number to it, that was somewhere between a 5.8 and a 6.8. It didn't offend me. Let's watch the next one."
well well well. All i have to say is that i was in this video and it may sound biased but i think Jaron did a phenomenal job.
I've worked on many sets and this one was the calmest and most inspiring. Jaron is a great director and treats all cast and crew working on his pieces with the utmost respect.
Great Job Jaron!
hey, where did all the nasty comments go? antville's self-healing - who'd'a thunk..?
along with his clip for dave gahan, this video has the perfect complimentary visuals to the track. Look at most videos and they do not evoke anywhere near enough emotional engagement, they are just pretty pictures or something else to wallpaper the music (sorry to generalise but on the best part, i feel that is true).
With this video in particular, the tone and mood and power in the music is totally represented by the images. Now THAT is what a music video SHOULD do...surely?
I really enjoyed this video. The camera effects compliment the message in the song perfectly. I think the intersection of beautiful and creepy is the best. Jaron goes there a lot and I love him for it.
this is really, really beautiful, eerie and mesmerizing. this goes way beyond a simple "gimmick", come on.
yeah, right - just f*cking beautiful!
