For a second year in a row, Santa’s Elves find themselves with a bit too much time on their hands. Thanks to a great deal on the Acer Aspire R11 Laptop this holiday season, the Elves have fewer toy orders than ever before. But these industrious Elves aren’t about to sit around feeling sorry for thems’elves. Instead, they’ve put the time to good use and mastered a new art. That’s right, they’re voguing.
The response to last year’s holiday retail spot for Acer was so positive, that instead of a side promotion, the Elves were chosen as the headliners to promote another fantastic deal, this time for Walmart.
The retail-focused campaign features 15” and 30” films, created under the watchful eye of our LA-based Creative Director, Shawn Preston. The spots will air on Walmart’s video walls across the US, and appear on news, lifestyle and shopping websites, close to the point-of-sale.
This video shows a part of the process of making my music video 'For As Long As It Lasts'. You can see Lorenzo Pignataro (vimeo.com/user10148841) dancing who I asked to create a rough choreography for my song and then change it up and improvise in each motion capture take. It was great working with him and I am very thankful that he put up with the tight mocap suit without flinching. Thanks!
My bachelor thesis is an experimental music video in which every single moving and deforming object is connected to the motion capture data of a dancer. The beauty of abstractly representing his choreography is that through the technology of motion capturing it is possible to somehow magnify human motion and make visible slight unintentional movements that we could not see with our naked eye. I find that these 'flaws' reveal a dancer's soul in contrast to, let's say, a robot or a machine.
I want to give special thanks to the dancer Lorenzo Pignataro (vimeo.com/lorenzopignataro) who had to go through all the dancing in a a tight mocap suit and my brother, David Scheler (vimeo.com/davidscheler), who created a wonderful song around my lyrics.
