i.n.s.p.i.r.a.t.i.o.n.


Thank you Chloe (via Amy) for showing me this enchantingly innovative music video. And the song itself is quite lovely, too.

Fun Facts:
* The video was shot all stills - roughly 3225 still photos for the entire video, using one camera, hanging from the ceiling for the main body of the movie.
* It took 4 weeks before shooting to create an animated computer generated storyboard for the video, with 3d dummies for the characters.
* It took only 2 days of shooting for the live actors on set to re-create the 3.5 minutes computer sequence, frame by frame.
* Some of the bed sheets used in the video were taken from Oren’s own bedroom and are now considered collectors items, worth at the moment not very much and therefore used as bed sheets. *Each of the wonderfully talented people above have worked on the video for a fraction of their normal rates (except Oren who worked for his normal rate of zero).

Kaizen: Actually quite an accomplishment for me today--ate a bit more food than I normally would, except I didn't allow myself to feel guilty! Healthier body, here I come! :)
