Marco Brambilla

I recently saw the teaser video for Kanye's song "POWER", and I was blown away. I looked into the director, Marco Brambilla, and was really inspired by his work. Apparently, he directed Demolition Man, starring Sylvestor Stallone and Wesley Snipes, a personal favorite of mine. But, after Demolition Man, Brambilla turned to more experimental installation pieces. His work is really incredible and you can even see one of his installations, CIVILIZATION, in the elevator at the Stand Hotel in NYC.

In my previous post about datamoshing, I mentioned that I was working on datamoshing a music video. The video, posted below, is for Astro Club Blonde's latest single, NIGHT SHIFT. Astro Club Blonde has their next album, BLUSH, on the way and we thought this video would be a fitting time to give everyone a sample. Make sure to check back for leaked tracks from the album in the next few weeks.

NIGHT SHIFT was shot on both the Canon 7D and on the Canon 550D. Our DP, Joel Neville Anderson, shot our exterior scenes in Upstate New York on his 7D. The rest of the video was shot in Brooklyn and in Adolfo Vargas' photo studio in midtown. I want to thank Adolfo Vargas for his kindness in letting us use his space and Tom Perry who waved a flashlight around at me while I ran in place.
