R.E.M. – Man-Sized Wreath - Directed by Crush

At the point in the reblogging game if a tech savy band band puts out a video, why not make it easy to share, send or embed? As much as I’m a fan of REM’s new video from Crush called Man-Sized Wreath I’m scratching my head for a flawed strategy to distribute the video. I can only see it on their respective sites – this isn’t 2001 anymore.

In any case – the video is a very satisfying visual watch. I’ve never played the role of motion designer but can still appreciate some of the details w/ out getting lost in the quick transitions or spinning things that usually accompany “flashy” videos. I also appreciated the fact that REM didn’t feel like they needed to be in every shot so they allowed designers to create a story. I’d recommend reading the video notes explaining the concept at http://glossyinc.com/remmswinfo.html.
