empire music video
« on: June 08, 2006, 09:02:18 pm »
i just got this idea and decided to post before i forget.

the intro starts with a japanese young woman (20ish), short black hair just long enough that you never get a good look at her face, dark clothes in a room with some fine fancy glass window/doors and some stone walls. the whole thing is set at dusk where you can't really make out the colors. the light is such a faint yellow that it appears white (from the sun). the dark in the room is such a dark blue that it appears black but isn't quite the black you're familiar with yet it's so close that you call it black. aggressive low angle camera switches almost in time with the guitar riffs. fade to the band on a rooftop looking out at a metropolis in the distance. no faces through the whole video. shadows, fading sunlight, stone and glass buildings, maybe even some of that accelerated time storm clouds.....and a metropolis that stretches to the horizon.

While I refuse to sit here and try to come up with an entire music video, for some reason if I were to picture one I imagine everyones faces to be simply skin. I don't know if that makes sense (think Matrix mouth thing in the "dream" scene, but extended to the eyes and the nostrals as well) just as a representation of "Those without a say" etc. =P

Fortunately for me (And all of you) Machinae is much more creative than I am, and I'm sure their first music vid will be amazing. =)

As if that would be new to the world of music videos. :P

Empire would contain 6 minutes of Soviet Fiindil.


sad cow, what\'s the point of the girl? what has she got to do with an empire?
I like the idea of not seeing faces, or the faces being blank - its the mood of everyone being a puppet to the regime - but why a girl in a room?.

I don't know if you were responding to me or the original post since you didn't quote it, but hit reply to #5.. but anywho... if you were talkin to me, I already said it's a good thing Machinae is in charge of their videos and not me (or half the other people here for that matter, sorry guys =P. I've seen a ton of video ideas on these forums over the last few years and most of them frighten me :P)

I like the idea of not seeing faces, or the faces being blank - its the mood of everyone being a puppet to the regime - but why a girl in a room?.

for one, i'm not entirely sure, it just seemed to fit subconciously. for two, i've seen a lot of music videos that i still don't know why anything was in them besides the band because they sang the song. for three, empire is my favorite track thus far and i just want to see a music video. for four, i would say that all Machinae songs tie together somehow and that it would be great to speculate which song(s) a girl like that would be an allusion to.
