Surreal Lyric-Lapse: Dream Music

Dream Music (Part 1 and 2) has been created by Marc Donahue and Sean Michael Williams at Perma Grin Films. Part one is only about 2 something minutes long, but the latest Part 2 featured on Vimeo is the Mother Of All Timelapse Videos. The craziest thing is that the lip-sync is better than 90s N’sync miming on stage!

The photographers mention-“Dream Music: Part II is a musical voyage into the depths of the subconscious. This lyrical narrative reflects on the perception of time within dreams and waking life. Filmed on location in 2 states over the course of 6 months, we explored our new production technique of what we call ‘lyric-lapsing’, to achieve the surrealistic feeling of movement. We built upon the foundation of Part 1 with ambitious ideas that usually took around 6-8 hours of work for 3-4 seconds of footage. Our goal was to pioneer a new film genre by telling a story through art and music. Part 2 was made to transport the viewer from their own reality into a world of dreams and at the end, they awake to wonder how we were able to take them there. Each scene was born from the symbolic meaning of the lyrics and overall message of the film; Time is the illusion within the dream of life.

Incredible…Phenomenal…Awesome…Classic…Ace…think I’ve said enough.

Note: There are so many things going on in these videos, I had to watch it again.
