Manchester Orchestra - "Simple Math" (Dir. DANIELS)

uglykittens, April 12, 2011 at 7:04:39 PM CEST

Impressive. Love the car POV at the end and the exploding trash cans.

Daniels are the american Megaforce.

saddy, April 12, 2011 at 7:11:57 PM CEST

starts off a bit slow but the last half was awesome.

progosk, April 12, 2011 at 7:36:02 PM CEST

epic. thatisall.

(oh, and: gondryesque.)

pancho, April 12, 2011 at 7:42:25 PM CEST

so good. one of my favs this year. a cleaner color pass would have made it even better imo, but i can't argue about the technical achievement, super editing, beautiful narrative, and all around creativity. shit am even forgetting my grammar. oh and it's even got an emotional ark. aah yeeeah. this is money well spend.

arno-s, April 12, 2011 at 8:06:09 PM CEST

pretty great. deserves a better song.

blastido, April 12, 2011 at 9:20:21 PM CEST

fantastic! Moving, creative, ambitious

rgallagher, April 13, 2011 at 12:22:09 AM CEST

this is by far my favorite daniels video. technically brilliant. epic. moving. D) all of the above.

my only comment (if anything really) is that i would like to see some of the more beautiful hand held shots a bit more steady, just so i can take it all in.

but what do i know? i make shit videos. epic win for daniels here.

Kranskian, April 13, 2011 at 3:58:53 AM CEST

Commendable and epic. My only criticism is that it's almost too 'gondryesque' - predictably so even. Reminds me of an emotional version of Gondry's Deadweight for Beck

As above i'd also like to see some longer, less shakey shots of some of the effects. It all becomes a bit of a blur after a while. I'd almost like to see Daniels calm down a bit and stop trying to cram a thousand moving shots and effects into the one video but I guess that's their style and maybe it's an ADHD generation thing. That said I'm a big fan of the air bag stomach, exploding woman and garbage bins. Although exploding garbage bins does remind me of Nima's L.E.S Artistes. Kind of like the performance from the kid.

There are pretty heavy post moves throughout. To my eye the shakiness is added to gloss over DIY-ness of it. A good way to go, I think. This is about as smooth as it could be without expensive motion control and CG. Content trumps slickness anyway.

otc, April 13, 2011 at 5:56:33 AM CEST

epic win indeed.

joyless grade, the deer won't move because she not alive, she be just a photo; too many cuts & shots crammed in at the beginning to make the crash look more spectacular & dynamic, like trying to bring a zombie back to life. not too believable. i didnt watch the rest

shoplifter, April 14, 2011 at 5:50:23 PM CEST

Haha. You have to laugh at 'my name is legion's comment there!

Way to get your knickers in a twist and not watch one of the best videos of the year dummy!

my name is legion, April 14, 2011 at 6:34:23 PM CEST

penis envy, shoplifter?

Kozoru, April 14, 2011 at 6:59:04 PM CEST Such a great video. All these drama, script, characters and great acting. To shoot all this stuff we see in the video is really great, innovative and original idea. The atmosphere is epic yet intimate. Nice edit, by the ways. Also I really like After Effects special effects. Fuck Gondry and great job, Daniel!

blastido, April 14, 2011 at 7:18:53 PM CEST

Legion, are you implying you have a larger penis than shoplifter simply because you negatively critiqued a popular video? Hilarious.

progosk, April 14, 2011 at 7:27:29 PM CEST

[erm, guys&gals, can we not go down this personal-fisticuffs road again, please? is it so hard to just let it slide?]

Kozoru, April 14, 2011 at 7:29:00 PM CEST

He's implying that implying an idiotic, boring and tasteless music video to be the best music video of the year and using the word 'dummy' turns you into a fucking gay cunt.

captainhairy, April 14, 2011 at 7:31:01 PM CEST

Kozoru - do you prefer rappy music or this kind of music?

Love the vid.

Kozoru, April 14, 2011 at 7:36:02 PM CEST

Of course I prefer raddy 'rappy' music to crappy 'indian' one.

tsaccenti, April 14, 2011 at 11:08:03 PM CEST

These guys keep getting better. Love it.

my name is legion, April 15, 2011 at 12:04:33 AM CEST

@blastido - all i implied was that i have a penis

hasafgagen, April 15, 2011 at 2:45:57 AM CEST

I agree! Legion has a penis and this music is soooo indian.

Great thread everyone! Let's keep this going!

baudfather, April 15, 2011 at 6:23:24 AM CEST

One of the best I've seen this year. Awesome edit, love the creativity. Imagination is in short supply these days (or at least people willing to pay for it).
