When the budget is on the downlow, I used a skateboard and hometrainer-turned-to-shouldermount to shoot the footage in the nice big location provided by the good people at Muziekodroom. Math whiz-kid M. Tytgat let me use his brain and K.U. Leuven’s over-the-weekend digital infrastructure to make what I believe is the first ever ANSCII music video. The band’s calles Polaroid Fiction, I think thehy were satisfied. Though in retrospect, the ASCII conversion effect can be used in some different ways I haven’t explored here due to temporal and financial restrictions.
So, Putrock, a local festival, sort of last minute-d me to make a promo vid for television. It’s in a mine, so the sucky metalband musicvideo alarm started-a-ringin’. I think I gave it a nice musicfestival feel with the awesome powers of 2D animation, morphing from one shot to the next with an architecture-like style using the blueprint background and black (inverted) heavy ink lines. Most of the animation ended up at 24-25 FPS, due to the 30 sec. time limit for tv. lots of work there, but the flow is really natural because of the high frame count.
FYI, the names are wiggeld mask paths in AE, no time for making real loops sadly.
I saved director/drummer Noah Melis from an oldskool photoshop nightmare, pimping re-edited “teenagers from outer space” footage. A movie from back when teenagers weren’t aliens by default.
basically, the mission was to go purple crazy:
Also, long time brotha from da hood Faisal Chatar (yes, I am a gangster) made this exquisit musicvideo for JFJ (a band) using the best the www has to offer: animated GIF
I laughed out loud and so should you:
Right now, editing a 5 clip promo campaign video thang starring Regi, from alt. folk band Milk inc. and derivatives, hang on to yer butts!
Martijn Ravesloot, friend and fellow band member of Stad Van Licht, happens to be an ace director and all round good idea guy. Made this video where – among other hipsters – I jump around in at 2000 fps.
For the record, I talked him out of blending a goldfish in reverse, taped stuff to cardboard and operated the lens/focus bit
