Great things can come out of commercial and artsy collaborations! The latest interactive music video for Aloe Blacc initiated by Lincoln Motor Company (also responsible for Beck’s Hello Again extravaganza) and directed by Radical Friend, is proof of this. The concept is quite simple: choose to follow one of the four different perspectives ( of singer Aloe, of dancers Leo and Hannah, or of the producer Nick), each resulting in a spectacularly choreographed one shot music video, or go for the director’s cut and see how the story-lines actually mix. Exploring the individual narratives is actually very rewarding (even though the switch between them is not particularly friendly, and jumps back and forth in the song are not possible, just as it was happening in Bob Dylan’s interactive vid, done with the same Interlude technology) as it allows also some shifts in sound perspective as well, beside the unique story of each character. Aloe is at one time in an elevator and during the ride, we hear him singing a cappella. As soon as the doors open however, the instruments resume. In the same way, when he is in front of a microphone, the sound design changes!

    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.
