Animated Music Video Jumps Across 14 iPhones and iPads in One Shot

By Andrew Liszewski on at

In a time where everything you see on TV and in the movies could easily be faked with computer graphics, it's nice when someone goes the extra mile to create something special using old-school techniques. For its new single Knock Knock, the band Brunettes Shoot Blondes created an animation that jumps across 14 different devices, and filmed the accompanying perfectly-synced performance in real time.

The animation itself was mostly like created with software, but perfectly positioning the iPhones, iPads, and iPods while the animated characters and objects appeared to jump from screen to screen is where the real performance happened. There's no word on how many takes were required to nail the final version, but you can safely assume that rehearsals probably lasted much longer than the actual shoot.
