Unique. Interesting. Impressive. That's how I would describe this music video I watched today. For the first reflective response of the year, I'd like to talk about this really awesome video I saw today on Vimeo. If you don't know what Vimeo is, Vimeo is the same concept of YouTube, sharing your videos online, except, Vimeo is more professional and serious and is dedicated to film-making and creativeness and art, rather than YouTube which has all kinds of videos out there. Anyways, As I was saying, I saw a really awesome and cool video today and I think you guys will like it as much as I did. The video was a music video for the song, "Save Me" by Cameroonian singer-songwriter, IRMA. You guys probably don't know the song or who the singer is, and neither did I until I stumbled upon this unique music video. This music video is much different from most kinds of music videos. Instead of multiple shots in a sequence to tell a story as you probably would do when creating a music video, this video does not do that at all. Here's the kicker: This music video is a total of one shot. One shot to fill 4 minutes of the song. Pretty crazy, right? You may be thinking why I'm so excited to talk about a music video that is a total of one shot. Well, never underestimate that one shot. This one shot is so special and interesting because they used projectors! They used a total of four projectors to project designs in this cube-like room that reminds me of the green screen room we saw at Full Sail University in Florida and It was like optical illusions, with 3-dimension objects and everything was just very mind-blowing. You just have to see the video for yourself! You'll be amazed as what 4 projecters, some camera movement, and one shot can do. Never underestimate a single shot (like that PSA from Searider with one shot using a slider on eating healthy). You can watch this video below. Other than that, that's it! Thanks for reading guys, Check out the video below and have a nice day!
