DUST BOWL III
Other lives and Genero.tv asked for an Music video his last single "Dust Bowl III", a song based on the severe dust stroms that greatly damage the ecology and agriculture of the US and Canadian prairies during the 1930's . With our video we wanted to transmit the suffering and the impotence of the human being against the force of nature. Three characters with the same stage that changes as it turns over and over like the hands of a clock. Again and again, in a closed circle that symbolizes the passage of time and the feeling of entrapment. From the flowering of the fields to the devastating consequences of drought and sandstorm.
Circular video mapping:
Time and nature are two elements that man hasn't control over them. So we decided to create all the video concept on the idea of a circle that spins and spins endlessly. We built a circular screen of 30 meter of diameter, then in the center of the circle we installed a giratutto with a video projector and a video camera. When the giratutto starts to turn the camera and projector turned with it, showing the different actors and stage elements of the story.
Real stage vs video mapping:
We want to mix the video mapping technology with real actors and elements, so we built around the circular path small elements to give a more real and also a theatrical look and feel.
