MGMT "Time To Pretend", Dir. Ray Tintori
who's it by? j sumner? d perez? ray tintori? anyone? UPDATE: tintori it is (i strongly presume).
in a jan 07 interview, tintori says: "What I'd really like to do in the next few years is start directing music videos. I have a bunch of other shorts I'm writing that are narrative things, but I have a lot off respect for guys like Michel Gondry and Spike Jonze, who go back and forth between these visually inventive music videos to really imaginative narrative projects. And I love pop music; I would just be tremendously thrilled to start working as a video director and have the opportunity to keep making my narrative projects." said, done. awesome.
makes me feel dizzy. but in a good way:)
gimme more ray!
Tintori signed with Partizan. Your presumption was right.
I was thinking Sumner too.
It works really well. Sort of makes me feel like a sucker for trying to make my keying all nice.
without doubt the best video for the year, and to prove it it will hold off all contenders through the next 11 months. Genius
Eh, it was fun for a while but then it just became sort of masturbatory with some very obvious rips from 70s surrealist and psychedelic cinema. I liked the song more than the video. I did like Death to the Tin Man but I just don’t think this video will hold up even by years end. Maybe he should go back to his Weimer Era / Guy Maddin style of his other films instead of falling too deep into that hyper-color hipster aesthetic that’s permeated so many of today’s young creators.
yes. the shot of them sitting around the table pushing money into the fire is an exact copy from Alejandro Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain. if you want to see 'genius' see The holy mountain. it is lame how everyone seems to be 'paying homage' (which actually means ripping off) to great visionary filmmakers like Jodorowsky's, who is struggling to get his films made.
Holy Mountain homage acknowledgement;
You wanna see Holy Mountain 'homage'? Check out the Santogold video for "L.E.S. Artistes". Must be contagious.
Chris Edley's costume design on this video inspired Gucci's creative director Frida Giannini, who dedicated her Spring 2009 menswear collection to the band's styling.
