Sometimes genius is quiet!

I posted a while ago about the video for the track “White Knuckles”  by group OK GO. Have a look at the making of clip below the video underneath, it just goes to show how many people and how much effort go into realising creative ideas!

(The video that was finally broadcast was ultimately captured on camera in one take after several weeks of rehearsal, the footage of the take starts around 6:30 into the clip)

Headcast info…

A few people had asked a while ago about lifecasting, or making a mould then casting it, from someones face, hands or even whole body. They also wanted to see some more pictures of the headcast I did at Bentley Chemicals with Rob Price.

Here you go!

Q3’s Qube Theatre gets a taste of strange…..

Richard Allport Q3

Wednesday evening saw the opening of Q3 pupil designed “in animi sonus” music and visual fused installation.

Invited guests were treated to a surreal exploration of students’ emotions, feelings and thoughts on life, expressed through sound-scapes, visual imagery and some bizarre props, all installed in spot lit darkness.

Sarah Mellors, Deputy Head of Q3 Academy commented:

“Never in my time at Q3 Academy have I ever seen anything like this, amazing work! I felt an array of emotions from sadness to joy, amazing maturity to vulnerability. I am overwhelmed!”

Creative Partnerships and Q3 Academy are considering potential plans for a public viewing of the installation next month and repetition of the event annually.

Special thanks go to Miss Burroughs, Miss Mellors and Mr Dawson for their assistance and enthusiasm on this project.

Interesting stuff! Watch this space for more news…

Enjoy!
