“Why Can’t We Get Along,” a video for fashion brand rag & bone combines a mix of talent from the worlds of cinematography, music, choreography, dance, and film.
Co-directed by Benjamin Millepied, Aaron Duffy and Bob Partington, with cinematography by Darius Khondji, the video continually shifts perspectives for the viewer.
Valeriya Safronova describes the video as a “six-and-a-half-minute phantasmagoric vignette about shifting perspectives, set to an original track by Thom Yorke, best known as the lead singer of Radiohead.
“All the actors wear Rag & Bone’s new collection, though it can be hard to see the clothes given how dizzying the visuals are, an effect achieved through the use of camera rigs that swing through the air, turn the landscape upside down and spin in circles.” To read the full article, click here.
“The film constantly shifts perspectives,” explains Alexandra Jardine , “with cameras swinging from pendulums and moving upside down. It also includes iPhone footage captured by [actor Ansel] Elgort.” To read the full article, click here.
Khondji collaborated with camera rig expert Tony Hill to deliver a film that choreographs the dancers and actors featured, but also the cameras used.
“Shot on the ARRI Alexa Mini, the film features different points of view from the subjects through the use of the five rigs,” says Eliza Williams, “which were made up of three originals created by Hill and two that were based on his innovative designs, dating back to the 1970s.” To read the full article, click here.
