Rainy Day

Rainy Day” is now the most “liked” HD “true” video on Vimeo. The first one in that list is a timelapse made out of digital pictures rather than a real video. As far as I am concerned, when shooting video with the limitations and difficulties this encompasses, no one has made anything better than this video, after 9 months since it got released. I expect “Rainy Day” to surpass all videos in that list anyway, as it still gets over 200 page views per day…

To me, this is the benchmark to beat.

It makes me wonder why. After all, technically, it’s pretty straightforward shot (ok, they used a hamburger bag to keep the camera dry, but that’s nor really technically challenging). Also in postproduction, nothing special was done in editing (some color adjustment and two flash transitions). So what makes is different, really? My guess: the pretty looks of the boy, the dramatic music and the dramatic lighting caused by the weather. All combined, it has a chemistry that works.
Unless of course it is yet another example of viral advertising and it was shot not with the hv20, but by professionals…

This is the admin speaking...

It’s the whole composition that makes it special. It looks like an artistic music video clip, while most other clips don’t deal with humans at all. This one does, and so it captivates.
