Juxtapoz did a behind-the-scenes piece on Mark Whalen, aka Kill Pixie, and his characters being animated in a music video for Autolux’ “The Science of Imaginary Solutions.” Kind of insane how much work goes into the making of one music video for an indie band. When people complain that nobody cares anymore, think again.
The name of the game is lightworks. This particular video, made for J Dilla’s Donuts track, Lightworks, was a fan made music video for a Stones Throw video contest. And it works really well, colors and such. Good Monday to you.
When you are in a cold place, you want to go to a warm place, and Slow Club’s new video for “If We’re Still Alive” (directed by Charles Watson, Suze Olbrich and Mike Bradley) just makes us a feel good. Both in song and video. (via)
Youth Lagoon is 22-year-old Trevor Powers. The youngster is making some great music and this video directed by Tyler T. Williams is breathtaking. Many of our friends are becoming fans of this band. Maybe you’re next?
Charles Bergquist is a very talented director, designer, and photographer based in San Diego, CA, and he put this amazing video together for Matthew Dear. As Charles put it, “The lyrics drove the photography and the sound drove the texture and slices. For most of the edit and post-production work, I let the track dictate the visuals.” The video seamlessly blends with the track to create a experience that seems more wholesome than most music videos.
Music videos, because no one is trying to get them on MTV anymore, are being made far more interesting and far more creative. Except perhaps a Peter Gabriel video. Those are always good. This is really good.
