I was on set yesterday for the upcoming Kristine ElezajÂ single Souvenir, and the experience was so captivating that it inspired a music video post. However, before I start talking about that I have to mention the Sony Red One camera the director was using for the video. Prior to that shoot I had never seen or heard about this camera but it is hands down the best picture quality I have ever seen. Retailing at about $30,000, the Red One is to video what the SSL is to music, and I predict it’s going to lead to some outstanding work in years to come, so far anyone into film you might want to do a little research.
With that said, I thought I’d repost one of my favorite recent videos, Stress by Justice.
These days it seems like a song can be discovered, blow up and fade away all in the same week. Unfortunately, this video was a victim of this new rapid pace consumption. Possibly inspired by Mathieu Kassovitzâ€™s â€œLa Haine,â€ â€œStressâ€ captures the not so romantic side of the Paris suburbs. Hard. â€ Hereâ€™s the live performance of â€œStressâ€ from â€œA Cross the Universe.â€ Sounds like your watching Hitchcock or something, I can only imagine how crazy this concert was. Bad ass.
