A while back we posted up a short film by Russian filmmaker Ilya Naishuller called Insane Office Escape. It garnered a lot of Internet attention due to the fact the entire film was shot in POV.
Well Ilya has returned with a sequel appropriately entitled Insane Office Escape 2 and he’s raised the bar in POV filmmaking.
The music video above, for band Biting Elbows latest single Stampede, is a clever mix of first-person-shooter spliced with the themes and stylings of the game Mirror’s Edge and the movie Strange Days.
The video was put together by the band and their friend Sergei Valyae, who is a parkour specialist. They explain on their official website Biting Elbows that:
We got actor Andrei Dementiev, whom I’ve worked with on TV before as a special guest and he put up with having to wear the mustache while we got our act in order. So, a big thanks goes out to his patience. I must also bow down to Anatoly and Ivan, who organized the shoot on the luxurious boat, and a HUGE thanks to all of the volunteers who spent hours on hot roofs and stuffy offices. We’ve had a blast making it, and I know you’ll have a blast watching it. Enjoy!
