Video Girl Talk: “Bounce That”

The video wasn’t actually made by Gillis, but as a part of the Open Source Cinema Project at Concordia University in Montreal. The whole video is rotoscoped, which is a ridiculous amount of work to put into any project. I heard Richard Linklater say in an NPR interview about A Scanner Darkly that 500 hours of work went into every single minute of that film, just to give you an idea of how much work must have gone into this video. Each of the students involved were given a hefty 1-3 seconds of live footage to reanimate. In a way its perfectly fitting for Girl Talk: every three seconds a new person is responsible for making the video as well as the music behind it.
