I came across some cool videos on /Film this week, thought I'd share. Both videos were done in one camera shot, and I thought they were pretty interesting. Curious to hear what other people think.
The first one is Tick Tock, a short film by Ien Chi. It plays in reverse, and according to Chi, "traces a young man's few minutes trying to fulfill his highest potential." Not sure I get that from watching it, but it's certainly cool to look at. Chi said it took 36 takes to get the right one, and it was filmed on the Oxford College of Emory campus. I'd say Chi was influenced by Memento, which in my book is a good thing.
The second video is a rap song, T.Shirt's "24 Frames." I don't know how many takes they needed for this one, but it was shot on two floors of a theater in SoHo. I could do without the cheesy blond, but the lyrics, 120 movie titles, are kind of cool. I'm not much of a rap fan, but I thought this was pretty creative.
