The Notting Hill Carnival is just around the corner, and Clemens Habicht gets us in the mood for the weekend's festivities with an impromptu carnival of his own, for Lokate's Flow.
Friendly Fires’ Skeleton Boy by Clemens Habicht
Those funky St. Albans lads Friendly Fires are back with the funked-up Skeleton Boy, and a new video by Clemens Habicht, who recently created some splendid live visuals for Clinic.
Those visuals capture various strange objects, usually in motion, in a kind of cool portraiture - and one of the materials Clemens used in his Clinic film plays a major part in this video: tiny polystyrene balls.
Rather bravely, the band are performing wearing black suits with only their faces visible. The balls, in a wind-machine assisted ball-storm, then give them stick-man bodies, followed by, appropriately, full skeletons. They start looking like motion-capture characters, but it's all done in-camera.
"Taking out all the excess information and concentrating on their movement through this pseudo-motion control, meant we could focus on the performance dynamic of the band, especially lead singer Ed's great dance moves," says Clemens.
