So it was in the amazing Phoenix video "Trying To Be Cool," directed by CANADA, where both the band and the production team do it entirely live: The band plays live and the crew captures each shot without any breaks.
Derick G provides the official Behind-The-Scenes look at "God Bless Amerika". There's no flag footage, so anyone looking to Zapruder that segement is out of luck. Instead you get an artful look at the NOLA neighborhood where they shot.
Creating absurdity requires absolute seriousness. To a point. Behind The Scenes director Jarred Alterman lets us walk along "Wishes" video director Eric Wareheim as he orchestrates an insanely odd, yet beautiful celebration of sport.
A great recap of the complexities involved in making director Grady Hall's "history of dance" video for Capital Cities "Safe And Sound." Lots of insights — bet you never realized the Charleston and the Kid N Play dance were so similar — and footage that takes you from initial rehearsals, to the shoot location and then the post process.
This Behind-The-Scenes of "Asphyxiation" offers far fewer leering opportunities than you might expect — and they don't explain how some of the shirts here defy physics and remain attached to their torsos (I know: tape) — but, it's a good look at a two day shoot involving lots of balls. (Sorry.)
Whether the underwater title sequence in this new Daddy Yankee video sets the tone or steals the show is a good argument, but there's no denying that VFX artist Aaron Vasquez gets that if you're gonna have opening titles in a video, you've gotta make them interesting.
