The creation of a music video used to require days or weeks for preparation and a production schedule that utilized a crew of people, including producer, director, cinematographer, and a host of technical professionals. Now, one person can plan it in a matter of hours and make 3 or 4 real-time performances of video, with a quick edit to use best parts of each one.
"Visuals are stimulated and changed immediately and constantly by audio mix," Brewington points out, "because software draws scenes from audio and midi messages in real-time."
The imagery produces a strikingly realistic appearance of three dimensions as viewer seems to be moving over, under, around, and even through glowing, spinning objects. "The result is a harmonious visual confirmation for mind's eye, connecting what you see on screen with sounds you are hearing," states Jimmy Hotz of 3dMaxMedia.
Gone are days of 12-person "light show" crew from late sixties or early seventies. More than three decades have passed since light show was taken to great heights by such legendary artists as Single Wing Turquoise Bird, Glenn McKay's Head Lights, and Bill Ham's Light Sound Dimension.
These creators, as well as New Glory Lights, Brotherhood of Light, Joshua Lights, and Diogenes Lantern Works, once formed visual backdrop (or surround vision, in case of Ronald Nameth's work for John Cage's HPSCHD) for major concerts. But instead of big crews required for these events, one-person VJ is now taking over. The speed of creativity is higher than ever, costs are more reasonable, and complexity of animation is spectacular in extreme.
