The (faux) Docu-Style Music Vid It’s an ongoing trend: the (faux) documentary-style music video. Upped this week on 2Pause: Daniel Wirtberg & Jonas Rudstrom‘s 2009 promo “Burial” for Miike Snow video. The promo opens with a gorgeous, albeit somewhat cliche footage of what appears to be ancient city of Varanasi at the Ganges River in “Beautiful India.” Sort of similar to “I Believe,” Simian Mobile Disco’s ’07 promo directed by Romain Gavras. Gavras used rural Romania and a bunch of colorful small town locals as the main subject of his video.

    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.
