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!!!!!!

Sascha

Seems to me that each shot it's own setup with transitions added in post to give the appearance of a lens push.

Quite remarkable for a 16 (!) year old clip.

Yep, it's definitely a bunch of pushes done either electronically or at the point of telecine with different camera setups. Lot of precise choreography among camera and talent going on there.

There was a period when Blink182 was doing a very similar (although slightly more refined) technique in several of their videos.

I don't know how Gondry did it, but I think how I would try to do it would involve a lot of storyboarding first, then I would use a monitor and laptop on the set to line up the next shot based on the previous shot, and use zoom effects in the edit to link/transition between the frames. If you overshoot a little bit, you give some room during the zoom/morph to re-align the shots. In a way, it is like the HP printer fpot with the recursive frames in that you sort of shoot it going forward, but post it in reverse. Maybe Gondry shot the music video in reverse scene order as this would seem to help a lot in creating the setups. See his Ciba Matto video for the song "Sugar Water".

(Gondry is awesome)

Not having one of those fancy gadgets, I'd stay a bit wide so I match the clips in AE.

I agree- quiet a state of art - music as well as clip!
