A music video for the artist Ali. We really went above and beyond with the props and homages to films here. The piece all started with Ali wanting to re-create a scene from Boyz in the Hood, which serves as the comical intro to the music video. In line with an homage to a film, Lone Cricket Pro collaborated to design several sets inspired by pop culture horror pieces. Twin peaks, Re-animator, Dexter, True Blood, and others, even a tribute to the body bag scene in Korn's Adidas video, along with random death scenes became the concept of the piece. The song is both comical and dark, and we wanted a video that complimented those themes.

To further emphasize the macabre feel, we filmed macro shots of various liquids, textures, and chemical reactions to get that embalming fluid, blood, and decomposition feel. They served as excellent transitions, and what we were most particularly drawn to was filming through a microscope. We got an adapter for an EF mount to a microscope mount, collected some rain water from a wheel barrow in the side yard, and filmed a mosquito larvae acting erratically in a drop of water under the lens. Using screen and multiply blend modes in premiere, this served as such an excellent distressed transition.

We love music videos because "anything goes," really. You don't have to explain why you choose certain lighting, you can just do it, and it's fun. Check out this dark, funny, weird, and very artistic music video.

Internet didn't kill the video star, it creates them. Music videos on Vimeo.

NOTE: Most common asked question: "How do I add videos to this channel? A: Most important thing is to make sure your video is enabled to be added to channels and collections. Then add me as a contact and share a link.

Or if you prefer videomilitia.com is now Tumblr integrated so go there and follow the submit link. I look at every email but don't feel bad if your video isn't added or given a response, email volume is rather high. If the production value is good then I probably didn't like the song. Yes song is a factor.

LASTLY: No cardboard robot videos. EVER.
