05 May sci-fi music vids
lots going on as Cannes is a week away! working on a new poster and website for CERTIFIED, expect to see those soon.
until then, here are two different sci-fi themed music videos.
Hooray For Earth’s “True Loves” video is a great low-budget science fiction film. It’s almost ALL natural locations and features a very small cast. the effects are limited and judiciously used. the cinematography and editing are top notch. all these combined creates a ethereal and compelling story.
on my first viewing I was surprised when it ended. I was so engaged in the world and vibe that I wanted MORE. and it’s pretty rare that a music video inspires that sort of reaction.
and for something completely different in scope, here’s Katy Perry’s “E.T.” it’s big, bold, and over the top. the production value and effects are top notch. the editing is tight and the photography is gorgeous. did it leave me wanting to see more? not really… but I enjoyed the 5 minute ride.
