Hi People,

can anybody help me with this question: The Music Video of the French Hip Hop Group IAM has a very unique style of zooming in throughout the whole clip.
Any idea how this was done?????








THANX!!!!!!

This is an early Michel Gondry video when he was still starting out. They talk about it a little in the special features on his director's series dvd (which I think you can netflix, well worth it). From what I remember the zooms are a type of morph from one shot to another. Each shot was set up to be a CU within the previous shot or a continuation of the story "move". Most of Gondry's work is just preproduced to death, the amount of planning done to pull off amazing feats with otherwise normal effects blows my mind. Wish I could add further explanation, but thats the limit to what I know about the video.

Watching the Gondry DVD is like taking a masters' degree course in video/film, and I don't know about you, but when I watched it, it just energized me into a fit of my own creativity. Very inspirational. I also recommend the Spike Jonze and Chris Cunnimgham editions of this DVD series to anyone in the biz.

and speaking of amazing work to watch and get inspired, check out the pre-District 9 work of Neill Blomkamp and his colleagues
