Now this is not as cool as seeing it in the Moma on 3 screens. You had a center bigger screen (What you see on the video) and the 2 smaller screens on the side (which you don’t see here). It was shot with 3 cameras and the images on the 2 side screen are complement of what you see on the center giving you a bigger context of where everything is coming from. Chris not only does the video but layers in sounds, beats and SFX from the visuals on the song making his collaboration not only a visual interpretation of the video but an actual creative collaboration with the other artist, in this case Gil Scott-Heron. Enjoy!!!
Wow… it started with Mr. Snuffleupagus being able to be seen by everyone, Bert and Ernie not being in the tub together, etc and now parents have an issue with Kate Perry’s dress on the episode she did for Sesame Street. Now I am not a big fan of hers but really..waht is the problem? Is a 5 year old going to have impure thoughts becasue of it? We are the ones that corrupt, create misconceptions and mold children’s POV by educating and mentoring; giving a solid set of values for them to rely in the future.
As far as I remember the “children hosts” of my time were more provocative and flashy yet nobody was creating such a big deal. I don’t know where do this women, sorry but they are the majority, get this idea.
I am sad that companies are so quick to react and bow down to the pressure of some. Like Jon Stewart put it so eloquently on his Rally to Restore Sanity: Some of us have jobs, wives and lots of worries to be spending time protesting issues that are not really an issue unless i guess you have the issue. cheers
So now that I helped fucking up an industry I am going to grab my millions and open my ego factory. That seems to be the message I get from all the buzz on this article that appeared in Adage, creativity and who knows how many more publications.
Yes, they do piss me off. All these heavy hitters, agency gods, multi awarded geniuses; they all have chosen to leave these so called “not fun agencies” to open their own shops. Now there is nothing wrong with that, believe me we all want better and more creative shops, but please don’t do it by shitting on the same industry that gave you the opportunity, knowledge, experience and wealth.
So please spare us your “sad story” and do something about the state of our industry… After all, you all are at least partly responsible for where it is now. cheers.
