Here’s another creative video for our brains to chew on.
Musician Travis teams up with directing duo Matt Robinson and Tom Wrigglesworth of Wriggles & Robins to create this cool and subtly beautiful music video. Check out the behind-the-scenes to see how they pulled it off.
It’s not Father’s Day but that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate and honour our fathers daily. During the past few weeks, I had the opportunity to take a glimpse into the lives of a few young working dads.
Fathers have a bad rep of always busying themselves with work and not spending much time with their kids. However, these dads I had the chance to film were different. Although they are busy with their professional careers, they are also very much engaged in the upbringing of their children. And that in itself, is a quality worth honouring.
Most of the shots were done real quick as I only had a brief period of time with each of the dads. Also, it didn’t help that we were shooting at places with tight security eg. a bank and hospital. This video challenged me to think on my feet and string together a series of comprehensive shots under time constraints. But truth to be told, I enjoy the thrill of filming guerrilla style.
All the other home videos were sourced from the husbands’ wives. Raw, personal, and fun clips of the dads spending time with their children(s). Love it!
Definitely one of the more meaningful projects I’ve worked on in a while. Also, this was my first time inside an operating theatre. Film really does take you to places!
The concept of speed and time have been worked and re-worked by many music videos. But this music video by “Walk off the Earth” makes most reverse and slow-mo videos look cute and pale in comparison.
Walk off the Earth is an unconventional, multi-talented five-piece band. They’ve been making music and Youtube videos for the past five years and their 5-man one-guitar rendition of “Somebody That I Used to Know” exploded on Youtube last year. Their videos are innovative and really fun to watch. Plus they make really good music/covers.
Shot this video for a vimeo storytelling competition about a month ago. The competition wanted us to tell the story of someone doing what they love. Winston has a love affair with food so I thought that his story would be a right fit for this video.
I don’t think he knew what he was getting himself into but a phone call and a few of hours later, I was at his place filming him and his dad cooking dinner. I wanted the video to be as authentic as possible. So rather than directing, I was happy to let the event unfold naturally.
The interview was impromptu but I’m glad that I did it. It was through this that I was able to learn more about what food meant to Winston and the kind of culture that he’s trying to cultivate in the food blogosphere. The goal of the video was to communicate Winston’s food philosophy and to capture a precious moment of food bringing people together. Hopefully I was able to just that.
