Cut Chemist, 1st Big Break Dir. Kyle Ruddick
This perspective is less jarring than i would have guessed.
Pretty rad, though there is much room to develop this method still.
Close to deserving one of these:
Sweet. :) -j
Technique is really cool for sure! and who hasn't had the 360 idea? Props for pulling it off. But it could really have been put to better use, felt a bit too much like a tech showcase, and performances were annoying.
btw, didn't francois vogel pioneer this? www.youtube.com
more constructive edit
I must say I stand by our work in this video.
Same technology implemented here years ago.
i dunno. i like the idea, but am with igor on the annoying performances - very cool looking, but needed to seriously do something more.
They don't make false claims to be the first to employ this technique. Choreography is the emphasis here, and that will be totally uninteresting to lots of people.
The direction seemed good for it's ambition.
for the record: P.O.D. "Goodbye for Now" (dir. Meiert Avis) GM Hummer H3 "H to the 3" (dir. Arni & Kinski)
Note to directors: Please only use effects that are completely without precedent.
I think it is brilliant work. Considering the grass roots nature of it, we as "artists" should all be supportive of each other, especially when one of us takes a risk or tries out something new. I would hope that our community be a nurturing space for new art....we should all be brEaking boundaries and cutting edges, and keep the criticism constructive when necessary, who cares who did it first? The point is that this was done well.
