sigur rós have given a dozen film makers the same modest budget and asked them to create whatever comes into their head when they listen to songs from the band’s new album valtari. the idea is to bypass the usual artistic approval process and allow people utmost creative freedom. among the filmmakers are ramin bahrani, alma har’el and john cameron mitchell.
“we never meant our music to come with a pre-programmed emotional response. we don’t want to tell anyone how to feel and what to take from it. with the films, we have literally no idea what the directors are going to come back with. none of them know what the others are doing, so hopefully it could be interesting.”
They have opened up their experiment to all filmmakers over the world. You too can make a video for Sigur Ros. Details are on their website. What you need to do is download their album, pick a song, make a music video for it, upload it to vimeo or youtube, and enter details on the Talenthouse Facebook app page. You can vote on your favourite music video (so expect posts coming up with links to our entry saying, ‘vote here!’).
The winners get a great deal of promo on Sigur Ros’ websites, and masses of kudos. And $5000.
Last weekend, I was a camera operator on an entry by filmmaker Matt Thomas.The song? Varuo
My friend Dan has made a short film to a song he has written.
My friend, Dan who lives in Melbourne, has been experimenting with making short films to his songs. He’s a very talented musician, and it’s great to hear what he’s doing. Below is his latest on Vimeo. I’ve given him some feedback, and asked if I could put his piece here so others can too.
So, please to enjoy. I think you’d like the music if you like Sigur Ros and Arcade Fire.
With this project I wanted to experiment more with both film and music. Essentially, I wanted to capture beauty in its simplest form, which is also why I opted to work with black and white visuals.
As well as that, I wanted to work with my friend, Lou, on a track so I asked him to come up with a bunch of guitar lines to use. On top of these ideas, I layered instruments and ambience as well as some interesting edits to create this finished project. Hope you like what I did Lou!!
