Elevating Colored Powder Gags to Art in SALIENCE (Paul Trill, dir.)

S A L I E N C E - A short by Paul Trillo

Salience isn't a music video — although the score by Noah Cunningham should appeal to fans of Explosions In The Sky and similarly epic rock minimalism — but it plays with the frequent music video gag of exploding bursts of colored powder. Director Paul Trillo takes what's usually a gag and takes it to artistic heights with an invisibility effect and super slo-mo Phantom Slo-Mo footage — perfectly laid out in a Making Of.
