Nosaj Thing — “Cold Stares” ft. Chance The Rapper & The O’My’s [music video]

Nosaj Thing — Cold Stares 3

Fantastic music video for track by Nosaj Thing and Chance The Rapper, put together by Rhizomatiks and features dancers from Elevenplay. The video uses drones, 3D capture and performative dance to create a sense of alternating between digital and real worlds:

Creative Director + Technical Director: Daito Manabe (Rhizomatiks Research) / Video Director: TAKCOM / Choreographer: MIKIKO (ELEVENPLAY) / Dancer: Kaorin (ELEVENPLAY) & Erissa (ELEVENPLAY) / Technical Director-Hardware Designer-Hardware Engineer: Motoi Ishibashi (Rhizomatiks Research) / Computer Vision Programmer: Yuya Hanai (Rhizomatiks Research) / Drone Engineer: Katsuhiko Harada (Rhizomatiks Research), Momoko Nishimoto (Rhizomatiks Research), Youichi Sakamoto (Rhizomatiks Research) / Video Producer: Takahiko Kajima (PICS) / Video Production Manager: Syuhei Harada (PICS) / CG Designer: Akira Miwa (McRay), Kohki Okuyama (McRay) / CG Producer: Akira Iio (McRAY) / Motion Capture System: Crescent, inc. / Costume Design: Yaepon.

While CG effects are nothing new, the use of little drone cameras to capture the movements of the two dancers teetering on the edge of reality and illusion gives everything a very unique feel. Learn about the making of here >rhizomatiks/coldstares/<
