A Stereoscopic Music Video for Mint Julep's 'To the Sea'

More

Rapidly alternating between two similar camera angles, Vivien Weyrauch and Fabian Röttger's video for Mint Julep creates a 3D effect. The Berlin-based directors, who work under the name a nice idea every day, refined the stereoscopic look they developed for the band's "Aviary" music video

They describe the creative development of the video in some notes via email:

The band asked us if we were interested in directing a follow up to the "Aviary" video and after listening to the song we feel in love with it immediately and the ideas just started flowing. We loved working with our friend Luisa who already acted in the "Aviary" video so we asked her if she would be interested and luckily she agreed immediately.

We've always been fond of good books with beautiful covers and to include this in the video just felt very natural to us. The video was shot in a small lake town outside of Berlin that our producer found and the mood just fit perfectly with what we had in mind.

It was pretty clear to us that we didn't want to work with the exact same technique again. It took us a lot of coffee and cappuccino breaks to find a way to significantly improve the camera shift technique and we're very proud with the end result as we think it is something unique and never been done before. The post production was insane for such a small production and involved several computers running straight for days.
