Weekend Video: Plan Of The City

June 18, 2011


I am back with weekend video segment of my blog showcasing some of the most beautiful and creative videos out there. This weekend’s video “Plan of the City” is a 13 minute long audio-visual treat. What would it be like settling in Mars by transporting all the sky-scrappers from New York and Shanghai? Ofcourse you are allowed to carry  bunch of canned food (Tang cans) to survive the trip. The video creatively utilizes animation, live action footage, illustrations and photographs to create a beautiful visual collage. In fact, in order to give more realistic feel to the visuals,  images taken by Mars rovers Spirit and Opportunity were used. The audio for the video, Change,  was created by Judd Greenstein and performed by NOW Ensemble who also star in the video. The audio and visuals were both developed in parallel and compliment each other in the video but they also stand out on their own expressing artistic intentions. The whole project was conceived and directed by Joshua Frankel. About the video and live performance of the audio-video in New York, Washington Post writes:

An antic piece with repeated, shifting patterns that snap together like building blocks, it (Change) was played alongside a film by Joshua Frankel called “Plan of the City,” starring the members of the ensemble, in which the buildings of New York shoot rocket-like to Mars. This proved one of the best matches of visuals to music I’ve seen: The film’s low-key jokiness was tailored to the loose conversational tone of Greenstein’s music, and neither overpowered the other. Judge for yourself… [Washington Post]
