Ray Tintori - MTV type stuff - Music Vids

gtoledo3's picture

Does anyone know if Ray Tintori is using a bunch of QC stuff for some of his vids?

I recently saw a couple things that looked like a QC grab bag. I recognized something that looked like a zuga "multiplicity" setup, but w/ chromakey, some stuff that looks particle/plus displacement mappy/feedback stuff where things are driven to make a tunnel/spikes, things that look like some flying meatball monster I remember, and then another vid that is a total datamosh affair.

I want to make sure that it's clear I'm not being critical in citing the fact that I see things that appear to me to have been derived from QC stuff I've seen. I think it's cool, and creative, though at first watch it was odd to see ideas that I associate with others pop up in mainstream work like this....but that's the same ol' song ;-)

Here are some examples of what I'm talking about:

The psychedelic QC grab-bag(?).

Mega data mosh + what looks like RII feedback effect every so often.

Despite the question of authenticity or whatever, we aren't allowed to see it down under.

No kidding!

Maybe this?

I really hate that "vevo" aspect of youtube.

If this stuff wasn't done with QC, it sure could have been.

I found some MGMT vids elsewhere on you-tube. At that res I can't be sure if it looks QC or not, I think I could tell at HD for some of those effects. Easily could be.

The drumming stuff early in gets done a fair bit in post these days doesn't it, but the psychedelic stuff and spheres sure could be QC. I'd being doing this stuff with the music video director I've art directed for on&off for years — accept he hates anything that doesn't look high-end 3D or laboriously AE, mores the pity. Mind I haven't show him anything QC for a couple of years, maybe it's 'hot' now ;)

I remember seeing someone take (literally) the zuga qtz that has a bunch of people standing in rows, patching in a video with lumakey, and it looking exactly like that drummer scene, down to a t. It certainly could have been done some other way - it just had a very QC feel to me, to the point where I think it might have actually been more difficult to not do that MGMT video with QC. Same with the datamosh thing. It is dead easy to do that exact visual in QC.

As far as AE goes....dude, I'm so tired of seeing trapcode. crapcode....

For Time to Pretend we used mostly Cinema 4D, but also Shake, Final Cut Pro, and lots of Phototshop.

Ray, thanks for taking the time to answer.

I do enjoy.

Yesterday, I had a friend suggest to me that I should look at the videos of mgmt, because they reminded him of the type of graphics I would be interested in.

After seeing Electric Feel and Time to Pretend, I "googled" to see who did them, and proceeded to watch every vid that was listed on wikipedia for you. It was really inspiring. I enjoy the way your visuals interplay with the rhythm of the music to such a great degree, and the way that when you shoot for an idea, you really take it to the hilt.

When I looked at your site, Ray, the link to your short film gives me an iTunes link and then a file not found on US Store message. Would like to see. Care to post a different link?
