MUSIC VIDEOS 36: Chemical Brothers - Star Guitar

Gondry's flame-artist brother Olivier spent two weeks taking every railway out of Paris and videoing from the train window. Gondry then found a perfect strip of railway and filmed the scene four times in one direction. The simplicity of the shoot did not extend to post-production however, which involved the DV footage being composited and matched precisely with the bass, high-hat, synth and all other elements of the music. The process took more than two months but has resulted in a multi-layered work of note.
