Ask Katy

I just watched the video for “Someone Else Not Me” from the website (loved it!) and wondered... Did the guys actually act for this video and then it was turned into the end product we see? Or was the entire thing done by computer to begin with? Did that make sense? Whoosh! Amy

HI AMY. THE VIDEO WAS CREATED USING FLASH ANIMATION TECHNOLOGY BUT THE RAW MATERIAL WAS SHOT BY A STILLS PHOTOGRAPHER OFTEN USING A MOTOR DRIVE ON THE CAMERA, HENCE CREATING THE SLIGHTLY BROKEN SEQUENCE OF IMAGES THAT MADE IT TO THE FINAL CUT OF THE VIDEO. SIMON ALSO RECORDED A VIDEO LIP SYNC TO THE SONG SO THAT THE BAND COULD INCLUDE SOME FOOTAGE OF HIM SINGING THE WORDS. THANKS FOR YOUR QUESTION.
