K.TV 10 – 26.11.09


K.TV CLASSIC

 

JAY-Z | 99 Probelms
Regie: Mark Romanek – 2004

shot entirely in 35mm, black-and-white, the video will not look like any other rap video currently on the air. per jay-z, it will be a more artistic cinematic exploration, filmed in and around brooklyn’s marcy projects. the piece will have a tough, natural, documentary look – human, raw, visually poetic. the spine of the video will be jay’s performance of the song, filmed in several highly visual locations (tbd). only jay’s 1994 encounter with a cop will be dramatized. (the lyrics will not be performed here as “dialog”. the scene will be depicted in a purely visual way.) with the possible exception of a few high-profile cameos (e.g. rick rubin) the video will make exclusive use of real people from the area. it will avoid the clichés of “life in the projects.” instead it will zero-in on rarely emphasized details of neighborhood life, showing both positive and negative aspects — always with an artistic eye, never judgmentally. that said, since the track has a such a hard, old skool feel, the attitude and tone of the piece will definitely emphasize many of the tougher realities. the final effect should have an unforgettable emotional impact. think of it as “reality-tv” with soul.

BAT FOR LASHES | What’s a Girl to do
Regie: Dougal Wilson – 2007

“I’d always wanted to do a video on bikes,” continues Wilson. “I like it when things that aren’t cool become cool. I’d always wanted to do a choreography scene on bikes. Natasha had pictures with tigers’ heads on people, so I thought animal heads, bikes, and that’s how it all happened.” Dougal Wilson (mehr hier.)

TROELS ABRAHAMSEN | end of Scene
Regie: Steffen Bygebjerg – 2009

“This video was made by Steffen Bygebjerg for the song “End Scene”. The track is taken from Troels Abrahamsen’s album WHT from 2009. The animation work was made in Adobe After Effects. Each frame was then printed and the print was subsequently scanned back into the computer. The scanned frames were then assembled back into the original animation, now with a new rugged look, created by the visit in the physical analogue world. No effects added after scanning.”

big Ideas don’t get any
Regie: James Houston – 2008

“I graduated from the Glasgow School of Art’s graphic design course. This was my final project. Radiohead held an online contest to remix “Nude” from their album – “In Rainbows” This was quite a difficult task for everybody that entered, as Nude is in 6/8 timing, and 63bpm. Most music that’s played in clubs is around 120bpm and usually 4/4 timing. It’s pretty difficult to seamlessly mix a waltz beat into a DJ set. This resulted in lots of generic entries consisting of a typical 4/4 beat, but with arbitrary clips from “Nude” thrown in so that they qualified for the contest. Thom Yorke joked at the ridiculousness of it in an interview for NPR radio, hinting that they set the competition to find out how people would approach such a challenging task. I decided to take the piss a bit, as the contest seemed to be in that spirit. Based on the lyric (and alternate title) “Big Ideas: Don’t get any” I grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed them in a situation where they’re trying their best to do something that they’re not exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there. It doesn’t sound great, as it’s not supposed to. I missed the contest deadline, so I’m offering it here for you to enjoy.”
