Choreographing Bjork’s Music Video

bjorkIn addition to the new music video “Declare Independence” directed by Michel Gondry, Bjork has another music video for “Wanderlust” due out in 2008. The video was choreographed by Chris Elam and features Misnomer dancers Brynne Billingsley and Coco Karol. As the music video is released, we will post pictures and videos of the process.

An interesting note – the entire production for Wanderlust was shot in 3D, in a relatively new process. The production also featured a great deal of technology on set. Isaiah, the music video director, explains all the different components:

“There are a number of different elements shot, or created in post [production], that all have to be combined, There is a large-scale, pre-human Yak-puppet, about 7-feet long and 7-feet tall, then there is Björk, then there is a version of Björk that she wears on her backpack played by [Coco Karol] a professional dancer, a large river god/transcendental beast, the landscapes shot in miniature and the CG [computer graphics] river. So each of those elements were manifested in a completely different environment and shot differently. “
