My new Little Boots promo for "Earthquake"...
NB. Please pay particular attention to the second verse where we've created a stroboscopic effect by synchronizing the frame rate of the camera to that of dripping stream of water. Each droplet is unique, but has been captured in mid-air with such precision that it gives the impression of a single droplets being held mid flight. This effect was not created through stop-motion animation techniques, or through computer trickery, but was matched live on set with a camera turning over at 12 frames per second in order to allow the artist to lip-sync and interact with the water in real time.
And I'm really proud of it :-)
