Santogold - L.E.S. Artistes (Dir. Nima Nourizadeh)

so, here's not the new bravia-spot, it indeed is the new santogold-video, directed by nima, who, by the way, has a sparkling new website up (nice intro).

and here are some - as always - wonderful first words by popjustice.

to me, the video's a bit close to ace norton's SMD one, talking of colours etc etc. on the other hand, the splashing paint reminds me of "ready for the floor". you see: i already got confused...

in related news: when's this ace norton-video for "creator" coming out?

weird disconnect between first and second section (or indeed, between artist & concept). photography and edit feel somehow off.
the latter half, however, is a very intriguing/compelling watch.

framescourer, March 5, 2008 6:54:40 PM CET

I didn't get it.

alejandroj, March 5, 2008 7:22:25 PM CET

an homage

and this little gem from a couple of videos ago

lisanowak, March 5, 2008 8:34:05 PM CET

I agree with prog re: the disconnect. I'm not quite sure what links the two halves of the vid. I'm happy to hear any theories...

And I agree there are similarities to ace norton's hustler in terms of the production design. however they thematically differ. ace's vid is more or less about consumer culture. nima's vid is more or less about the apocalypse.

Anyway, the vid is incredibly haunting.

nu_shuz, March 5, 2008 9:18:03 PM CET

how unpleasant.

mva, March 5, 2008 10:53:24 PM CET

she sounds so much like Tegan & Sara it's frightening... i don't know if i like the video yet

familiar, March 5, 2008 11:01:53 PM CET

Strikes me as a real winner for readers of Nylon Magazine.

scooper, March 5, 2008 11:03:49 PM CET

strikes me as a real winner for WEARERS of nylon...

nicely shot. nice use of colour. nice homage indeed...

shatner, March 6, 2008 11:07:12 AM CET

why so conservative antville? why perturbed by this so called 'disconnect'? I found the change of scene/ the incongruity pretty thrilling...

I've always admired Sam Brown's work for juxtaposing what seems like unrelated imagery... but 'working' (like that James Blunt vid with the balloons and the run through the woods). I like it when directors do stuff you aren't 'supposed to do'.

Go Nima. This is ace.

progosk, March 6, 2008 11:48:25 AM CET

alejandro: enlightenment, plz.

alejandro jodorowsky, March 6, 2008 1:13:10 PM CET

hola Antville!

The Holy Mountain (1973 film)
by myself
Alejandro Jodorowsky

This pop musica takes my "haunting" or some might say "compelling" demonstration scene towards the end of the film shot for shot and thank you

if you have not seen the film - look at it ! it is a greatest work

is a packed full of disturbing disconnected ideas that are very ready to be put into pop musica please

and i'm also available for new films if anyone has the energy or te money to work with me please and thank you


Ale Jodorowsky

a link for me

progosk, March 6, 2008 1:20:15 PM CET

the embarassment...
erm... hi a.j. awesome to have you round. very much hoping a new john&yoko pop up to get you filming again.

alejandro jodorowsky, March 6, 2008 1:21:48 PM CET

or you might like to not watch the film if you do not have time and look straight at trailer here for new ideas

thank you

alejandro jodorowsky, March 6, 2008 1:24:12 PM CET

i forgetted how many ideas i have for all ! look at the ideas they are for all thank you

captainhairy, March 6, 2008 1:28:33 PM CET

well this is a well executed hommage.
but jeesh - thats a lot of "hommages" in a row for nima... dire straits, bat dance, jodorowsky.
creativity running dry?

progosk, March 6, 2008 2:10:00 PM CET

the demonstration scenes are at 9:25 here.

matei-alexandru mocanu, March 6, 2008 2:11:36 PM CET

dearest alejandro, it's pretty funny to see how your iconic on-screen violence turns pulp. it's so appealingly postmodern it renders you obsolete.

sincerely yours,
matei barney

cleptomanic, March 6, 2008 2:54:04 PM CET


lisanowak, March 6, 2008 6:11:05 PM CET

Ale, thanks for enlightening us!

...I tried to go see The Holy Mountain last year at the Hollywood Cemetery but it sold out. I hope they screen it again soon...

otc, March 6, 2008 9:27:45 PM CET

Time to add another one to the list. I'd put this one in the uninspired category.

robodrug, March 6, 2008 9:34:49 PM CET

How unpleasant 'n I'm not talkin' 'bout the clip...
I can't get me 'ead 'round the fact that various comment scripts don't seem to remain shaded once u've read them n jump back into life
It's confusing and irritating
Possibly the worse idea the 'ville boffins have come up wiv
The video? Pass... I got a 'eadache

Tho' I guess, thinking bout it may have little to do with antville n summit more to do wiv me updating to the moronic pedo sterilizing protection of IE7

kappadonna, March 7, 2008 12:52:38 AM CET

otc: That last still looks awfully like one of the scenes in MGMT's "Time To Pretend". Does that promo have any other references I missed (bar maybe Lord Of The Flies?)? Does it make your list too?

matei-alexandru mocanu, March 7, 2008 1:32:04 PM CET

the boy bands have won..., indeed

vidbot, March 7, 2008 2:49:35 PM CET

Bloody disappointing! Is this really the same Nima that did "Over and Over". Finger out of arse dood!

kayser_sauze, March 7, 2008 3:52:39 PM CET


progosk, March 7, 2008 4:21:24 PM CET

alejandro: does the other video you noticed (with this scene

in it) have any other references to your film?

matei-alexandru mocanu, March 7, 2008 4:48:45 PM CET

come on stop it already; impersonating jodorowsky was fun at 1st, now it ain't

alejandro jodorowsky, March 7, 2008 5:08:34 PM CET

I am not impersonate

riyadh, March 9, 2008 9:59:41 PM CET

otaku-house, March 25, 2008 3:31:31 PM CET

ever since the dvds were issued of jodorowsky's films i have been counting down how long it would be until we started seeing all the imagery showing up in music videos.

kee, June 13, 2008 8:26:53 AM CEST

@lisanowak: Where is the "Creator" video?? I thought it was due in May? So restless...

lisanowak, June 14, 2008 1:57:18 AM CEST

oh, that was a poor attempt at humor.

Budweiser bought the rights for Creator and used it in an ad for their new lime flavored beer, which hits stores in May 2008.

kee, June 14, 2008 7:14:20 AM CEST

Ah yes... that commercial.

I saw behind-the-scenes photos of "Creator" about a month ago in a magazine I cannot recall.

kayser_sauze, June 18, 2008 2:46:59 PM CEST

Ace's got nixed, Tim observed

kee, June 19, 2008 8:03:54 AM CEST

Figured as much. Who is taking over?

kayser_sauze, August 4, 2008 6:10:53 PM CEST

Hello Mark Romanek doing the XXXChange Mix for the Ford Flex: "Grid".
