Röyksopp: The Girl and the Robot
I like the song, I like the lighting, and I like the vibe in the apartment. The sparkly robot scenes I could do without. ;)

Elegant vid but I expected quite more from it. I'm starting to get fed up with the knoll light factory effect. A shame because the happy Up Here video was excellent.
Too literal, and maybe not literal enough if that was the desired path. Also, It needed a larger movement through space, the Royksopp sound typically screams for this.
Though, the Robot advert was my favorite section... ...Robyn searching Robot Singles adverts online would have been hot. A little Robot sex chat with strong hard machines.OMG. Robot human love verges on creepiness so easily, well i guess this video avoided that, but at a loss I think. You can't help compare this theme to Chris Cunningham's "All is Full of Love Video." Creepy, romantic, and starkly beautiful at the same time. It's a God damn benchmark, and it's hard to avoid. Well, the video is pretty anyway, props for the pretty.
I think those are actual flares (likely from a streak filter, and maybe from anamorphic) im sure they were enhanced a bit though
love the look of this vid
Been deep in the trenches of loving this album so it was interesting to see this video pop up when I was just today thinking how much I like this song.
Regardless that, I'm as equally meh as the rest of you guys on this one. Basic idea, nice shots, great lighting, it just didn't expand upon the idea enough. Just seemed like it could have done a lot more.
Side note: Does Robyn remind anyone else of the Childlike Empress from The Neverending Story?
it looks like anamorphic lens flare to me
i feel as though ive seen enough of those for a lifetime after star trek
but they do look cool, so i understand.
