I’m not sure music videos for a book release is a thing, but it is now! We shot some test footage last year and decided to cut it into a music video: the clip features a groovy track from the forthcoming interactive ebook version of MAX & CHARLIE (built with Zyndo, a software company I/we started to make awesome interactive ebooks — much more on this soon enough!) Please oh please watch/listen and let us know what you think!
MAX & CHARLIE short 3D demo
↑ Here’s a “short 3D demo” I recently made that highlights moments of the route my upcoming feature film MAX & CHARLIE will take through New York City. Quick disclaimer: this demo was made using a consumer-quality 3D camera (JVC GS-TD1) and in no way reflects the plot or eventual visual goal of MAX & CHARLIE. That said, it will give you a better idea that creating compelling (and unique) 3D is quickly becoming within the reach of a small guerrilla production. Please put on your 3D glasses and watch in the highest quality your computer and internet connection will allow…
Need 3D glasses? Visit free-3d-glasses.com and I’ll send you a free pair. Another disclaimer: I own the site. But real talk: there’s no hassle, no swindle, just free 3d shades. Sweet!
If this short demo whet your appetite, I strongly urge you two spend the twenty minutes watching this extended version. 3D is often more compelling with longer shots (that is, shots long enough to allow your eyes to focus and explore the visual planes), and there’s a lot of great stuff that might just blow your mind in this extended version. The same disclaimer as above applies (consumer camera, no plot, etc), though I’d additionally like to add that this is a mere “trim cut” and is thus somewhat rough around the edges. But I trust you’ll still enjoy the uniqueness and beauty.
Music is Clams Casino “All I Need” from his instrumental mixtape (unauthorized; sorry and thanks!). Google it and get it, it’s free and great.
And thanks again to Koo and B&H for hooking up the camera (and Steadicam Merlin). If you haven’t yet, peep nofilmschool.com; I’m positive you’ll find something rewarding (Koo is also my fellow co-creator of The West Side and 3rd Rail).
