More and more performers are trying to ban smartphones during their concerts and only allow professional photographers to take the shots. However, Kendrick Lamar is taking a different route. He will not ban his fans from using smartphones at his shows – but there will be no professional photographers allowed.
The music video for Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright” is a huge clash of tastes for me. First, I love black and white photography and videography, which I believe partly springs from how I look at life – as black and white, yes or no, on or off. Secondly, the production quality is great and appeals to my cinematic tastes. However, I strongly dislike rap music and feel that this song, in particular, is offensive to the very demographic he is rapping about.
But, be that as it may, the editing skill of Vinnie Hobbs in the final product is amazing. Vinnie was generous enough to give us a look behind the scenes with a timelapse video (after the jump) of his process across the three days of editing it took to compile the footage, edit effects, and present a polished piece.
(Warning: Strong and offensive language in the videos.)
