Anyone seen this MV yet. Putting myself on the line I think it is one of the best cinematography efforts in a long while

Sigur Ros MV

what do you think? Looks like long ultra primes (T2 to T4) and a serious TK with fabulous art direction in natural light and a nice story all in extreme Iceland - can't get better than that - OH and no unmotivated camera movement :)

thanks

yeah this video is absolutely fantastic. lush and gorgeous. great concept and stunning photography. just shows us californians how amazing day exteriors can be when you're not in LA sun haha.

but yeah if anyone has any insight into how this was shot (lenses, stocks, special processing) i'd love to hear it.

also really impressed by the new carpark north video also on boards' website - great imagery and speed effects.

Wow. That was kind of humbling to watch.
Definitely a unique way of executing a music video. Beautiful!!

And yeah, if anyone knows anything more about the vid, please post! Anyone know who the DP was?

Thanks for posting that Rolfe!

Iceland sure does like somthing teleported from a distant planet! :)

Definitely anamorphic - you can see the ellipticial bokeh and even the odd elliptical aperture ghosting. Not too much breathing though but I guess there aren't really any major focus racks.

Anyone venture to guess the actual lenses?



cheers,

DP was Chris Soos, 35mm (2 or 3 day shoot) shot with 2 anamorphic primes, tripod, natural light and some filters, magic done in TK, stylist Raven (Bjork's stylist)

Got this from a sigur ros fan

seems accurate

thanks
