Visual effects studio Moneyshots (www.moneyshotspost.com
) of Santa Monica, California recently completed design and compositing work on WASTING MY TIME, a music video from London artists Kosheen, the second release off their Kokopelli album on the Moksha/BMG label.
Directed by Mike Lipscombe, the video features three planes flying along the beach and over the streets of Venice, California, each with an enormous banner trailing behind. On these banners live footage of the band performing the song is projected causing people on the beach and in the streets to stop, whether sunbathing, skateboarding or shooting hoops, and watch in awe and surprise.
Lipscombe opted to shoot the planes dragging three chroma-screen banners, one blue, one green and one red. Moneyshots utilized flame to composite the band in action onto the banners.
Said Moneyshots' creative director, Elad Offer: "Kosheen was a very simple effect, but with a very striking result. Our job was to put the band's moody and dynamic performance onto these banners and make it look real."
The production company was Frank Films. Katya Baker was the exec producer and Claude Morello served as producer.
Flame artists for Moneyshots were Offer and Raphael Mosley. Chris Eckardt was the exec producer.
