A Beauty Overblown (Krasota)

It is the summer and the heat is making Lumiere and Son feel lazy - 'lets make a Russian pop video for Zemfira ' they say. After several hours working on an elaborate story board with a cast of thousands and much dramatic action they realise there is no need for lights, camera, action as they have something in the can already that fits perfectly.

  1. nice!
    fine intro to zefira, & straight son montage
    a pleasure to see the whole stuff unreeled at a 3rd of the speed, with quite superb color overlays... and great with the two white sidebars..

    " For example, in painting the form arises from abstract elements of line and color, while in Lumiere & Son the material concreteness of the image within the frame presents - as an element - the greatest difficulty in manipulation." Sergei Eisenstein

  2. It maintains a fine balance between total excess (beauty overblown) and perfection. The tension maintained in some way by the figure(s) with their backs to the the audience gazing at the screen.
