Following film and TV, music takes stab at 3-D
Question of the Day
“You would think classical music is pretty static and you would not feel that much stuff going on, but actually because of the depth of 3-D, you really actually enhance the listening experience and connection to the music by having that shot in 3-D,” he said.
“It can actually be overwhelming to have too many cameras and too many different angles,” he added.
Outside the Shakira clip, others have since produced 3-D music videos and content. Guitar Center Sessions, a program on DirecTV Inc., features live 3-D performances, including recent shows with Peter Gabriel and Jane’s Addiction. A representative for the channel confirmed that there are plans to shoot about 15 more shows before the end of the year.
Rock duo Broken Bells released a 3-D video for their latest single, “October,” and the video for Bon Jovi’s new single, “What Do You Got,” was shot in 3-D.
Wayne Isham, the director behind the Bon Jovi clip, says 3-D music videos are an opportunity for “music videos to blow everyone’s minds again.”
“I think it’s going to be a rebirth of performance again in music, because with everything that’s going on with the Internet and everything that’s going on with the lack of a true MTV channel where people are not having … the ability to show their videos, I think now bands are going to be able to showcase themselves … in the most simplistic sense,” Isham said.
