Ting Tings’ Shut Up And Let Me Go by Alex and Liane
Alex and Liane's new Ting Tings video is a corker: weird hand signs, clever transitions, touches of anaglyph 3D, kung fu, great art direction - and loads of sexual chemistry.
But just what is that hand sign thing all about
A and L reveal all below.
Alex and Liane on making The Ting Tings' Shut Up And Let Me Go video
"We seem to have a lot of ideas based around hands - not sure why. Actually we've been sitting on the finger transition idea for a while, thrown it at a few people who didn't pick up on it.
"The shapes come from us waving our arms around and gesticulating a lot while we talk to each other, and our interest in the Neoists, who have also used the gesture as a symbol for the art movement since the Seventies.
"We reached the stage where we just wanted to realize the idea. We wrote some fighting sequences into it - which the band picked up on and expressed a desire to do some kung fu and wirework.
"It was probably a bit over-ambitious for a one day shoot and we had to drop quite a lot of the stunts because they were just so time consuming to get right - we shot 6 rolls - and follow precisely with a Technocrane.
"We did have some concerns about translating our mini DV test onto film but Will Bex was really encouraging and great to work with so we knew we were in good hands.
"Amanda James at Final Cut had a massive task with all the layers she had to work with but she is a whizz and between her and Marcus at Rushes, they really pulled it out of the bag for us."[/pay]
