Made from Stock

13 Dec

When a friend showed me this video for the first time, I asked him, “How would you go about making a video like this? How would you describe this vision to a director?” It turns out that you don’t. Carl Burgess was given complete freedom in creating this video for Ratatat, and the finished product was made entirely from stock footage. Here’s a full article on the production: http://www.fastcodesign.com/1662128/carl-burgess-director-of-the-years-creepiest-coolest-music-video

And while the above is my favorite, I think it would be dishonest of me to post a Ratatat video for a community like the DPV without  tossing in at least one more. I’d say Falcon Jab is probably the most traditionally psychedelic of their videos–that I’ve seen, anyway–but there’s just something all too human in the video for Drugs that made me choose it for my headline this Saturday.
