Modest Mouse Music Video by Max Tyrie

Max Tyrie:

Myself and a couple have friends have entered the above into the Modest Mouse video competition. Using green screen footage provided by the band we cut a simple music video. We then degraded the images and printed out each frame sequentially. (all 4133 of them) We then nailed each “shot” of 50-100 posters to various structures and posts. Then using a digital SLR camera with a long exposure we frame by frame shot each poster. Oh, and theres a little video projection (again, frame by frame on the SLR) just to mix it up. There is no compositing, no shortcuts, just lots of blood, sweat and tears, and a huge Kinkos bill!”…. Max

“Modest Mouse want a video for their new single “Missed The Boat”. They know there are tons of talented fans and video directors out there that have what it takes to put it together. So that’s where you come in.

The band has shot performance footage of the entire song on green screen from multiple camera angles. Footage is posted HERE for you to download. The director can download performance footage and other digital assets and then make your own video using Final Cut Studio.

Use all of your own footage, use some of the band’s, it’s all up to you, just use your imagination.”
