This incredible music video for John Mayer was shot entirely live-action, with no post-production effects. The animations were done using the ombro cinema – an old technique where the silhouettes appear through the film and the movements are resulted from the stroboscopic illusion. Check here for more ombro cinema examples. Other technologies used include: lenticular sheets - a set of lenses designed in such a way as when viewed from slightly different angles, different images are produced; and autostereoscopy - displaying stereoscopic images (3D for instance) without the use of special headgear or glasses on the part of the viewer. via Motionographer Read here more about pre-cinema animation!

    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.
