Risky Underwater Long-Take Music Video Features World Champion Freediver

highlysuspect-lydia

Directors TS&R spent a few years planning one of the riskiest music videos I’ve seen in awhile. It’s risky in terms of the actual production but also in what it asks of the audience. The team at Pier Pictures had a bold vision to make a single-take music video featuring a character in a life-or-death situation, filmed entirely underwater for the duration of the song.

While it was not my favourite thing to watch, I applaud the efforts of those involved (especially world champion freediver Marina Kazankova) to create something more experiential than your typical rock music video.

Watch the video for Highly Suspect’s “Lydia” below.

  • I could only watch it by convincing myself there was a scuba crew with an oxygen tank hovering just out of the camera’s view. *shudder*

      Ha! That’s an excellent coping mechanism!

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
