Darwin Deez’s Up In The Clouds by Tom Kingsley
Ironically-coiffured Darwin Deez's new single has inspired a wonderful video by Tom Kingsley.
Taking the familiar video-map of a plane's flight progress as its starting point, the video for Up In The Clouds is bursting with ideas, comedy, charm, nice performances (Darwin's ex is a sweetheart), literary nods - and lots of effects, accomplished heroically by Chris Bristow at Munky.
To be honest, someone sporting a loose perm shouldn't really have a video this good.
Tom Kingsley on making the video for Darwin Deez's Up In The Clouds
"This was my first post-heavy video, and I really enjoyed it. I got to film a plane crash, read some quite interesting books about clouds, and spend lots of quality time in Munky - the loveliest post house in Britain, and arguably the world.
"Munky's resident After Effects hero Chris Bristow boasts After Effects super skills. If he'd been in the Scouts, he would have won literally all of the After Effects scouting badges. Not only did Chris complete 147 beautiful effects shots in ten days, but he had to cope with a double whammy of green-screen nightmares.
"The 3D text plug-in kept crashing the computer like there was no tomorrow. And the noisy compressed 7D footage made everything very difficult to key, especially Darwin Deez's famously crazy hair. Luckily he could take a well-earned rest for the nine shots that didn't require any SFX. And I like to think he shared my excitement that this might very well be the first music video to feature a book by Alain de Botton."
