If you thought that David Wilson had just about explored every single nook and cranny of his uber-creative brain (see his strata-cut, Garden of Eden love-story, face-painting stop-motion, praxinoscoped life evolution circles, or these insanely psychedelic animations), then think again. Wilson returns to 2Pause with two music videos that are galaxies apart. Charon is a touching animated story of a desperately depressed puppet that makes even the most convinced happy-go-lucky optimist see the glass half empty. Metronomy’s The Bay, on the other hand, is rather odd outing in Wilson’s oeuvre, in which he marries Helmut Newton’s 1970′s sex-glam with an overall nerdy, retro chill-out mood that just makes you crave for a Euro-trip to some quaint, formerly upper-class resort like Saint-Tropez or Monte Carlo (from before the P Diddy’s).

    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.
