Roman Coppola (Youtube warning) battles Nokia in extreme slow-motion, reminding me of a previous post.

I don't understand. Did RC direct one or both of these? Did Nokia rip off his video or vice versa?

Two links to ads, tighttrousers?

Always did like the idea of every day objects exploding in SF action scene ways. Not like this, where it's real explosions slowed down. Imagine a tree branch falling to the ground, bristling with flames and explosions like a spaceship in Starship Troopers. Then it hits thhe ground, and detonates, a mini shockwave spreading across the lawn. I'd like to use that in a music video or something one of these days.

I think Coppola was first; I just like the surreal quality of slo-mo.

Bullet through water - excellent. Nokia phone, probably not that good.

brundlefly I think I know what you mean. Back broken, integrity can't be guaranteed anywhere on board. People spilling out into space propelled by air. The intimate details of the ship structure is visible, exposed to a vacuum.

tighttrousers: Zabriskie Point was first. Not Roman Coppola. ZABRISKIE POINT. Thank you.

The Fatboy Slim song with a video barely had a point. Without, well, it was as empty as my current analogy-creating abilities.

In other words, "I got nothing." But so does Fatboy Slim.

I prefer slo-mo dogs in my videos.

Blowed up real good.

Roman Coppola can't do anything original, as anyone who's seen CQ and David Holzman's Diary can attest.

It was stuff blowing up. What more do you need?

I second Antonioni's Zabriskie Point as the earliest use of extreme slow motion explosions of everyday objects. I was trying to find a link to a short film some friends of mine made using a DV camera by Photron. It captures at 2000 frames per second, and is much slower than Coppola's footage.
