Music Video Made With Jelly Beans
November 4, 2011 by staff
Singer / songwriter Kina Grannis and music video director Greg Jardin decided to do something unique with a new music video Grannis “in their arms.” From beginning to end, the video shows dozens of moving scenes made of jelly beans. As explained in a garden behind the scenes video, the idea was inspired by the jelly bean art, which reproduces famous photographs and paintings using nothing but Jelly Belly candies.
Of course, a still picture made from jelly beans is completely different to make a music video moving away from them, especially when you are inserting a human being in most scenes. The team created the framework after careful structuring and shot them in what is essentially a music video in stop-motion. Grannis then lay down on a piece of glass over the frame in odd positions, but needs to get the perfect scene. They even made a plaster cast of her body at one point to make a version of the jelly bean in her body.
The whole process took more than a year to complete, but the result is the music video you see above. The video has not been for 24 hours, but accumulated more than 4,000 like on YouTube, and that number continues to grow.
“One of the hardest things to work on the video was that we could put in an eight-hour day of work and see that they have not a second full-length video,” Grannis says Mashable. “Psychologically, it really can play with you! On the positive side, it gave us time to see what we have created at the end of each day. Rewards small They kept us.”
Grannis first attracted mainstream attention through the media, specifically through their song “Gotta Digg” which quickly zoom to the top of the social news site Digg (this was when the site was relevant). He won a contest where her music video “Message from Your Heart” was featured in a Super Bowl ad. Grannis also happens to be the winner of one of our last Home Face-Offs YouTube song specifically for her performance (with the imaginary friend) Foster Popular “Water Pump kicks.”
