Shake Me Down

music video

This music video features Cage the Elephant's, Shake Me Down, in a visual expression of life on this planet; the beauty, harshness and isolation. The projection combined with experiments in editing made creating this music video extremely fun and visually interesting. 

This project was a collaboration between Alex Campbell and myself, experimenting with projection and illusionistic editing. The process of filming the video was tedious but fun, taking turns lip-singing the lyrics in different places in the composition, creating a mug-shot like montage. Making sure not to move the camera throughout the filming was key to creating the illusion of having multiple of one person in the shot at a time.

Software : Adobe After Effects, MadMapper

Equipment : Canon SL2, Optoma HD28
