Turn up your Volume for Higher Maths! -or- My Teeth Aren't Really That Yellow



video


Do you enjoy music? How about videos? Do you love fun? Balloons? High-fives?
Me too.
That song I posted with the last entry? Yeah...I had a Music Video assignment for my Music Video class and I couldn't think of a song I like more right now.
But the dilemma is thus: I don't know anything about fractals or equations and am under a very short deadline! What to do? I love a song about math, but I don't love math.

So I made a music video about...well, let's just say it's about how much I love the song, and makes minimal reference to actual fractals. Ok: no reference.

I went to the basement of the Film/Animation/Video department and holed up for two nights with some friends and some balloons...the result is above, and I hope someone out there will enjoy it! :D I had a lot of fun, and for such a silly, quick, animation/video assignment, I'm really pleased with how it came out! Props to Lia Marcoux and Liz Mooney for hanging out and being my attractive lady-type assistants :)

It's only part of the song. The assignment was only to do 1min of stop-motion animation...and this is already over 2min.
I'm really excited for my music-video final...I have a DJ friend set to the task of mixing up some power-metal to some pop/video-game music and I've got a few ideas up my sleeve. Anyways, more pictures to come this week...
In the meantime, I hope it is sunny where you are. It is here.

Enjoy!

Also: (and this is so this doesn't become a hidden secret of mine) But, if you think you might like to hear/watch some ESL Danish candy-pop brain-crack, I highly recommend:

Alphabeat - 10,000 Nights of Thunder

Alphabeat - Fascination

The word is on your lips.
Say the word.

:D

Sorry for all those with "taste".

lol Jonathan Coulton is awesome and your video is really cute. :o)

My favorite songs of his are "re: Your Brains", and "Creepy Doll". Oh, and "Chiron Beta Prime". Did you know he wrote "Still Alive," the song at the end of Portal? Okay, I love that song too.

Keep having fun!
