I've loved TMBG since I heard the song Birdhouse in your Soul from the album Flood. I was a teenybopper at that time and they've continued to produce quirky and interesting songs. I swear I've heard them doing themes to kids shows such as Higglytown Heros (I really hate that show. It's creepy how they jump inside each other. Nothing against the animation. It's great.)
Back to this video. Beautiful compositing and color scheme, lots of motion blur and 3D layers... it's a wild ride. This was done by ColourMovie who did that terrific video for 311, Don't Tread on Me.
This is a crazy bumpy world and she doesn't even wear knee pads. Red Head Speedskater, directed by Kompost, has some really cool and interesting animation. They're doing that 2.5D thing really well. The music is from the duo behind The Black Eyed Peas. Via if:mv.
Rap du Québcuois. I have no idea what they're rhyming about, but this is a cool retro-style video with lots of neon effects. I love the guy floating on the neon donut. The neon guy swallowing is also tre magnifique. The Rubix cube heads are awesome. Directed by Jérémie Saindon
I like their older song better - a lot better. The video is Flash-animated and is about vodka, carmel and chewing gum. How could that not be great?
I caught the trailer for Across the Universe on tv tonight during Colbert Report and it looks awesome. As the comments on Slashfilm read, I also have been impressed with the musicals of the past few years. Loved Moulin Rouge and this one looks even better. I'm a huge fan of the Beatles and these renditions are excellent. I hate it when Beatles songs are ruined. I love the "Sadie" rendition of "Oh, Darlin;". Gotta be Sexy Sadie. I've noticed that the characters are named after characters from Beatles tunes (Prudence, Jude, etc.)
It looks like it has a strong plot too. The effects look pretty damn cool. I'm digging the quick shot of Uncle Sam. This one is a must see for me.
The Smashing Pumpkins had a video contest and their fans had the opportunity to use their green screen footage from the video for Tarantula to create their own music video. Levi Ahmu won the contest. It's as good as the original. I do see a lot of Trapcode 3D Stroke. The original video was featured at Toolfarm Inspirations on July 2, 2007.
I do think this is one of the better rock tunes that SP has come out with since their Mellon Collie album.
Toolfarm Forum Expert Jim Geduldick worked on a video about the Red camera. That's the back of Jim's head at 1:11.
When I was 18 I worked at Chi-Chi's as a hostess. I'd have to check IDs in the evening to let people in the bar. The jukebox played Kickstart My Heart non-stop. I can't hear Motley Crue without thinking of Chajitas.
