The Price of Love

My friend Stephanie has made a habit of posting an 80s/New Wave music video every Thursday for a while now, and yesterday she posted New Order’s “World” (I’ve embedded the MTV Music version because it’s a little clearer):

I’m not terribly fond of the song, but the video is fantastic short-form film making. The whole thing is only five shots over nearly 4.5 minutes, and the second shot is almost 1.5 minutes alone! That’s some serious coordination and rehearsal. It was directed by Baillie Walsh who’s since directed videos for Kylie Minogue and Oasis.
