The following music video was submitted for the Modest Mouse video competition by Max Tyrie.
What’s amazing about the video is how they made it. Here’s Max Tyrie’s blog post of what they did
Myself and a couple have friends have entered the above into the Modest Mouse video competition. Using green screen footage provided by the band we cut a simple music video. We then degraded the images and printed out each frame sequentially. (all 4133 of them) We then nailed each “shot” of 50-100 posters to various structures and posts. Then using a digital SLR camera with a long exposure we frame by frame shot each poster. Oh, and theres a little video projection (again, frame by frame on the SLR) just to mix it up. There is no compositing, no shortcuts, just lots of blood, sweat and tears, and a huge Kinkos bill!
I really can’t imagine myself printing out so many sheets of paper and then taking the time to do long exposure shots of each single photo in different locations. It must really have been a lot of work. But this might be a good technique to pick up if you are only given a budget for photocopying instead of one for a video crew plus equipment.
