Dream Music, a Time-Lapse Masterwork: VIDEO

Dreammusic

A static screenshot fails to do justice to this time-lapse masterpiece of a music video, which was created by Marc Donahue and Sean Michael Williams and took around 6-8 hours of work for 3-4 seconds of footage.

They write:

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...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.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. Strangely moving. And timely, considering our current "reality"…

  3. There are like 5 different banal songs held together by pretentious, overly dramatic music and visuals. "Sorta interesting" is not the same as good, at least as far as art is concerned. Why don't young people make fun or sweet music anymore? It's all of this whinny, pretentious crap, and I forget the music the minute the music stops. Millenials should stop trying to go viral and just make some GOOD MUSIC.

  7. What a visual treat (yeah, the star of the vid). Interesting how they did the music video portion. The ending was pretty, but have seen this effect quite a bit recently. Nice job.

  8. Nightmare music, you mean. I could take only a very small dose of that. Also, not a lot of thinking went into the video, either. For instance, the guy at the end with his back to the camera kept looking like he was twitching, because the shots were cut into the film....nothing smooth here. The scenery was easy to film, and just stick someone in the picture "admiring" it, and you have a standard vacation film to show your friends and family. Nothing smooth about the music, either. Right on, Miguel!

  12. In 1985, he visited his brother (current owner’s uncle) who lives in the US, and sold it to him because he loved it so much
