This is really impressive. It’s described by the makers as the “shortest shooting ever” – a 3m30s pop promo shot from a car driven at 50Km/h in just five seconds using the Phantom Flex 4K camera.
In an industrial area of France in autumn last year, writer/director Guillaume Panariello placed 80 extras along an 80 metre stretch of road and filmed at 1000 frames/second from the car while the extras set about different tasks, such as lighting a barbecue, talking on the phone, shooting confetti into the air, using light sabres, etc.
Panariello says the slowed down footage, stretched over the length of the promo creates a “dreamlike mural”, which it’s hard to disagree with.
It’s a shame the song is so uninspiring – Unconditional Rebel from French artist Siska is retro trip-hop by numbers, sounding at best like a Portishead or Morcheeba B-side from the early 90s.
