    Music video for Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaur's "Tapes & Money"

TOTALLY ENORMOUS EXTINCT DINOSAURS
TAPES AND MONEY

I’m so honoured to get involved with Orlando’s ventures again (check the 4Play doco I made last year), this time promoting his Tapes & Money single which received a bunch of new vocals (though I really didn’t mind the original version). He wanted to transmit the energy of the live show, something that is hard when shooting a video in a studio. So the idea was to film at one of the shows to capture the real thing: pretty simple, and I think I’ve got the hang of these live event videos (REBELRAVE / Richie Hawtin / Matthew Dear).

I really enjoyed editing this as I’m particularly inspired by a lot of these acid/VHS style videos, and I wanted to try to make something similar using the live concert footage as I think it really matches TEED’s esthetic. This style is something you can’t really predict, you’re just overlaying images on top of each other and building compositions on the fly, and until you render it out you don’t really know how it’s going to turn out. As I was editing I was really impressed by some of the still frames which looked more like oil paintings than anything else, however you probably miss them when watching the video as it’s so fast-paced. So I saved some of the stills on my Flickr, check them out!
