Lo-Fi Projection Mapping Music Videos
Two videos released within 24 hours of each other utilize similar projection techniques.
The first, Avicii and ‘Wake Me Up - Conte Remix’, utilizing simple cardboard frames and inventive visual manipulations in a small space - video embedded below:
The second video is from David Bowie. Directed by himself, with the help of a couple of good friends, and filmed in a few evenings - the video cost $12.99 to make! The track is the sterling remix by James Murphy of ‘Love Is Lost’ - video and details below:
Last week David Bowie had an idea. His new single, 'LOVE IS LOST', was to be released this week and a video clip was needed.
Eschewing both celebrity guests and splashy production, Bowie picked up his domestic camera from home, rescued a couple of puppets from his legendary archive and wrote, shot and edited the entire video over this last weekend in the darkened corridor of his office in Manhattan, New York.
With his assistant Jimmy King on camera and best friend Coco Schwab handling everything from continuity to sandwiches they worked through the evenings finishing on Monday morning, sending it out to the rest of the world.
The result of this speedy production is a strangely moving gothic inflected storyline perfect for Halloween. And the cost? Just $12.99 for the thumb drive to download the finished video on.
