David Wilson has been a busy guy recently since dropping back-to-back videos for We Have Band and We Got Time. However, this recent piece for Little Boots’ “Remedy” caught my attention for a different reason.
I know most of you are thinking, “not another kaleidoscope video.” Well yes, it is. However, I’m posting this as proof that a process, even as tired as the kaleidoscope effect, can be pushed back into relevance. It fits right in with his growing body of work that explores pattern, composition and meticulous planning.
Rather than leaning on this stock After Effects plug-in, David has a crafted an intricate structure of visuals that directly connect to the effect he is using. Take a moment to examine some of the detail and synchronization in the effects shots and you’ll see the great attention to detail that must have gone into the pre-production of this shoot. If every idea has been done, just do it better…
The release of this one slipped under my radar, but hopefully its new to many of you as well.
This black and white piece is packed with stunning cinematic moments as well more human vignettes that fit with Ne-o’s past work. I personally love what they’ve done with the shadow-play on the environment. It’s an added visual layer that really pushes the theme of light to the next level.
