Radiohead video for their single « House of Cards » was directed by James Frost. No cameras or lights were used. Instead, 3D plotting technologies collected information about the shapes and relative distances of objects. The video was created entirely with visualizations of that data. Therefore, if you have access to the data, you can manipulate Thom Yorke as you please. I know some ladies would like that but they will be disapointed as you can only change the point of view while he sings. Anyway, if you still want to play with him just go to that page and click on the play button. It takes a while to load but it is worth it to wait.

Go to: http://code.google.com/radiohead to find additional pieces of data to create your own visualizations.

And if you still wander how they made a video without using lights or camera, here is the video of the making of. It explains everything and should answer all the remaining questions you might have.

Radiohead : House of Cards Lyrics

Songwriters: Greenwood, Colin Charles; Greenwood, Jonathan Richa; O’Brien, Edward John; Selway, Philip James; Yorke, Thomas Edward;

I don’t want to be your friend
I just want to be your lover
No matter how it ends
No matter how it starts

Forget about your house of cards
And I’ll do mine
Forget about your house of cards
And I’ll do mine

Fall off the table,
Get swept under
Denial, denial

The infrastructure will collapse
Voltage spikes
Throw your keys in the bowl
Kiss your husband goodnight

Forget about your house of cards
And I’ll do mine
Forget about your house of cards
And I’ll do mine

Fall off the table,
And get swept under

Denial, denial
Denial, denial
Your ears should be burning
Denial, denial
Your ears should be burning
Denial, denial
