Yeh he betta do a good job of it :P

 

I was researching news about the video and found out from Wikipedia that:

 

'The music video for "Talk" is is helmed by director/photographer Anton Corbijn. Filming will take place in London during the first week of November. Corbijn has hinted that the clip will be shot in black and white, with a distinct B-movie feel to it.'

 

hmmm?

 

And I also happened to find this article from "uk.launch.yahoo.com"

 

'Corbijn shoots Coldplay

(Thursday October 27, 2005 02:46 PM)

 

Coldplay's next video is to be shot by famed director Anton Corbijn, the group have confirmed.

 

Anton Corbijn will film the promo clip for the forthcoming "Talk" single, which is to be the third track to be lifted from their globe-straddling album "X&Y".

 

Corbijn is one of the world's most famous video producers and photographers, having shot acclaimed promos for the likes of Joy Division, U2, Depeche Mode, Nirvana and The Killers.

 

Corbijn has confirmed the band asked him to shoot the clip for "Talk", having previously rejected a number of previous offers from Chris Martin and co.

 

He commented: "I have turned down a few previous requests from Coldplay to do a script for their songs, but I liked this song and had an idea straightaway, so that was enough for me to go on.

 

"It is always the idea and the song that counts, not the size of the band. I just as happily work with Joseph Arthur, for instance, as with a big band. The only redeeming factor in that sense is that I know the video from the big band will get MTV airplay."

 

Talking about the new video, Corbijn said: "Well, it is black and white, and slightly strange, as is often the way in my videos, I guess. It will have a certain B-movie feel to it, but I cannot say more than this for now.

 

"I always come up with the ideas - except for Nirvana's video - but usually there is some input from the artist. Generally, people come to me for the whole trip, if you like. Whether that is good or bad, I cannot say, but that is what happens.'

 

Hope this helps guys.

I'm very excited about this, especially since I just finished rewatching his directorial version of U2's video for "One".

 

Anton is really a photography hero of mine (and not just because I'm a U2 addict!! :lol: I swear!). This should be a great video, and I hope it's a departure from some of their previous methods.

 

I just was watching his commentary on the U2 video "Please" and he speaks about how he's not fond of filming bands playing their instruments, like performances. It's much more about the idea of the songs and having actual "characters" in the videos than anything else.

 

Eeeee I'm so excited!!

 

If you'd like to see a couple of his videos he did for U2, here are the links... (I hope they work, they should) (and yes, I know I'm completely biased towards U2, but he's a very prominent figure in this band's history, etc etc, he did the photoshoot for their Joshua Tree album, in case you didn't know that, absolutely classic):

He's very fond of black and white... If you can tell. I really hope this is an "ideas" video rather than just Coldplay playing their instruments, which of course we all know they can already do :lol:

I like that video, hopefully he'll do something cool involving all the band members and have the guys doing something other than performing the song. The guys have released too many concert-performance-like videos already. ;)
