The lovely story of an adventurous butterfly as imagined by Miranda Stet and Vincent Uilenbroek for Krater’s “Lightning Bulb”. A couple of words from director Miranda Stet about the creative process:   “We wanted to find a nice synergy with the song, about being stuck in a moment: not daring to look into the future, with an endless restlessness but in the same time being confident that you do not want to say goodbye. Feeling always insecure and desperate is in a way also a form of security. We wanted to create a surreal world, a bulb. An environment filled with swarming animals and insects that appear as shapes and become synonymous with the main character. We felt it was important to emphasize an imperfection and therefore most of video is freehand recorded. The animations show a certain awkwardness to illustrate the difficulty of making any progress.  It was a conscious choice to minimize the digital effects. Only the colors were manipulated.”

    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.
