Analog is back! At least for this low budget but very creative stop motion… We asked director Jorrit Spoelstra to give us some insight on the film-making process. Though commisioned for this promo by Popunie, Jorrit felt an instant connection with the band as they were already working with an analog feeling, having recorded their first demo on second hand bought tapes. He had already been thinking of makig an analog stop-motion, and as the budget for the promo was quite low, he decided to sieze the opportunity and just go for it. “I shot 80 films, scanned them and didn’t do any grading apart from applying a negative filter”, Jorrit says. “We needed two days of shooting instead of one and that was just 1% of the highly underestimated work. Scanning took ages…” The project ended up needing a little over two months to get completed, but in the end Jorrit says all the struggle was completly worth it!

    2Pause | Freezing Music Video Culture

    The world of music videos has traditionally provided a perfect breeding ground to test new visual styles, VFX and editing techniques. It has also proven to be an extraordinary springboard for some of todays most acclaimed film directors, such as Spike Jonze, Baz Luhrmann and Michel Gondry, to name but three. 2Pause is the second installment of our curated music video website. The old Pause website is still online here.
