In anticipation of their upcoming studio album, New York band Vampire Weekend recently released their newest single, “Sunflower”.
Lensed by cinematographer Sam Levy and directed by Academy Award-nominated actor Jonah Hill, "the stylized cinematography and celebrity appearances make the two-minute video feel a lot longer, but the trippy, meandering vibe ... suits the jam-band-influenced song perfectly" says Uproxx.
"Jonah wanted the frame to rotate 360 degrees in order to create and maintain the music video’s psychedelic 70s feel," says Levy. To tackle this difficult feat, Levy combined shooting on 16mm film paired with a “Skater Scope” snorkel lens, which has an intricate internal optical system that allows the user to spin the frame, with the use of Steadicam - a first for the cinematographer.
“Sunflower” is the fourth single to be released from Vampire Weekend’s highly anticipated FATHER OF THE BRIDE, out May 3.view more - Creative
