My animation fit in with the style of beastie boys other film clips.


The theme of the animation was loosly based around the 1970’s. “Intergalatic” revolves around a space theme for example. So themes are important part of beastie boy clips.


The colours i have used fit in with beastie boys film clips. The over exposed effect which is seen in the video of the street background, drummer, jester of my animation. This effect is seen in most beastie boy film clips such as “sure shot”. The way I have altered the colours in the street footage is similar to how the colours are altered in the “pass the mic” video clip. The colours also show high contrast with the black, a theme present in several video clips and album covers.


The use of the the image of a man dressed as a smurf, and an advertisement from the 1970’s was done because thats what the beastie boys do in their video. Most of their video clips feature unrelated images of people, aswell as pictures of old or retro images. The image of the smurf was chosen to fit with the fun feel as it is not an expected image and humorous as a adult male is dressed as a random cartoon character. The graffiti was included because it looks dynamic and interesting. The beastie boys all wearing suits was to try and fit with the idea of them all wearing matching clothes which they do in almost ever vidoe clip.


The video of the man playing the guitar with a jester hat was included as it adds to the humour. This is similar to the magician seen in “ch-check it out”. Also he was a part of the 60’s/70’s and appears like he might still be living it with his tye dye shirt and colourful hat. The video of the streets of a city was chosen because of the typically beastie boys video clip being located in an urban enviroment. So the use of video footage was included to fit with the theme.


The starting purple hypnosis is quite slow. This is not consisten with other bb film clips, which is ok as in bb flim clips there is always some new element to them that has not been seen before. This is important as it keeps the viewer’s attention as they expect something different. The quick cut from video footage to overlayed images was done to give the animation some exictment and pass, which bb clips have. The way the yellow graffitii morphes across the screen was done to fit twith the idea of the purple hypnosis image at the start. The man stops playing just before it ends because thats when the music stops.
