Entity FX Creates VFX for Peter Gabriel’s "Barry Williams Show" Music Video
Delivers over 50 effects shots five days after receiving locked cut from editorial
Santa Monica, CA (Sep. 04, 2002)
Directed by Sean Penn, the music video features the world of Barry Williams, a fictitious Jerry Springer-like talk show host, as he holds court to the everyday freaks of daytime TV. By the end of this entertaining, sardonic video, the audience has begun eerily to form stigmatas and tears of blood and Barry Williams finds himself caught in a bloody maelstrom that finally leaves him at the bottom of a crimson pool.
Entity FX was kept busy, delivering over 50 effects shots in just five days of receiving the locked cut from editorial. Effects work included complex green screen composites, CG blood, CG weather effects and multiple image distortions.

Peter Gabriel: Medienwächter mögen seine neue Single nicht

Hamburg - "The Barry Williams Show" befasst sich mit den Grenzen von Reality-TV und untersucht die Beziehung zwischen exhibitionistischen Fernsehsendungen und abnormem Verhalten. Im Video, das Gabriel gemeinsam mit dem Schauspieler und Regisseur Sean Penn gedreht hat, verwandelt sich eine von Gabriel beobachtete Talkshow langsam in ein Blutbad.
Obwohl der Name "Barry Williams" fiktiv ist, enthält das Video nicht nur Parallelen zur umstrittenen US-Pöbel-Sendung "Jerry Springer Show". "Es ist eine kleine Fabel über Reality-TV, darüber, wohin es führen kann und was es den Menschen antut", sagte Gabriel. "Das ist ein bisschen wie mit Junk Food. Du hast Lust darauf, aber am Ende hast du kein gutes Gefühl dabei."
