Dr. Devious and the Wiseman – Dance In Cyberspace (1992)

12 Jul

Music and video production from the late Guru Josh.

In his own words:

I thought, why not mix computer graphics to music and sell them as a visual album. There was no market. Woolworth’s and HMV said if you sell 2 thousand that’s good. Visual videos do not sell.

Despite no market I believed this was the next big thing and put my money, over 150 grand into digital video equipment, computers. I took 15 unemployed computer kids on the street, converted the 2nd and third floor of a building into visual design studios and spent the next 9 Months creating a 50 min video called Dr devious and the Wisemen, VR Dance in cyberspace, I was DR Devious but no one knew, the only hint was the company, GJ productions.

That video sold 220,000 copies and set a world trend. Dr Devious was the coolest character in the world, and no one knew who he was.

After hearing that Mr.Pyrnoski had directed it, I was an instant fan. He has since gone on to great things like starting his own studio, Titmouse, and directing on the oh so awesome show Metalocalypse. He uploaded an early animatic from the movie:
