Marc Donahue and Sean Michael Williams are two very talented dudes. Plus the fact that we’re posting a music video on Sick Chirpse means we must really, really like it, because we hardly ever post music videos on Sick Chirpse.
This video, entitled ‘Dream Music: Part 2’, is a music video made in time-lapse style but with the creators very own twist which they call ‘lyric lapsing’. Dream Music: Part 2 takes you through a musical journey of several very different style tracks that are meant to represent the perception of time within dreams. Marc and Sean say that it took around 6-8 hours of work to produce just 3-4 seconds of footage. That works out at 44 days of filming if you were to film 24/7. Wowsa.
Have a read of what Marc and Sean have to say about their project, check out the video and then go follow them on Twitter. They’re releasing a behind the scenes video next week so check back for that.
Dream Music: Part II is a musical voyage into the depths of the subconscious. This lyrical narrative reflects on the perception of time within dreams and waking life. Filmed on location in 2 states over the course of 6 months, we explored our new production technique of what we call ‘lyric-lapsing’, to achieve the surrealistic feeling of movement. We built upon the foundation of Part 1 with ambitious ideas that usually took around 6-8 hours of work for 3-4 seconds of footage. Our goal was to pioneer a new film genre by telling a story through art and music. Part 2 was made to transport the viewer from their own reality into a world of dreams and at the end, they awake to wonder how we were able to take them there. Each scene was born from the symbolic meaning of the lyrics and overall message of the film; Time is the illusion within the dream of life.
