"FIREWORKS" VIDEO FOR SHARING:
ABOUT THE VIDEO:
Gregg McNeill and Lesley-Anne Morrison of Big Baby Productions worked directly with the boutique analog photography company Lomography on this video between London, New York City, and Vienna. The team compiled the equipment and expertise to film the vision McNeill and Morrison hatched with Echo Bloom's Kyle Evans, and then traveled to the Isle of Bute in the highlands of Scotland to execute it.
In Evans' words: "The shoot hinged on the Lomokino, a new take on a really old concept - a hand-cranked motion picture camera. The camera takes rolls of regular 35mm film, each of which gives you about 10 seconds of action (depending on the speed you're cranking). We did some tests cranking at a reasonable speed and estimated that we would get about 6 frames per second, far less than the 24 fps for movies (not to mention the 30 fps for television). To combat this we decided to slow down the song by a factor of 4, lipsync to the song veeeeeeery slowly, and speed everything up in post. Fashion for the shoot was done by the haute couture designer Milu Milu."
