Just when you think you can’t find another YouTube video trick, someone goes and manages to choreograph an elaborate piece across webcams across the planet. But perhaps this piece isn’t really about YouTube so much as it is coordinating movement across performers and dividing the screen space up in creative ways — something that could be even more interesting in live contexts.
This music video was shot for Sour’s ‘Hibi no Neiro’ (Tone of everyday) from their first mini album ‘Water Flavor EP’. The cast were selected from the actual Sour fan base, from many countries around the world. Each person and scene was filmed purely via webcam.
Director: Masashi Kawamura + Hal Kirkland + Magico Nakamura + Masayoshi Nakamura
