SkyDancers Featured in Plant/Krauss Video
Northridge, California-based SkyDancers International Inc., a technology leader in active motion promotional inflatables, announced that DNA Studio, based in Hollywood, Calif. selected SkyDancers for the special effects set design for the music video entitled, “Gone, Gone, Gone (Done Moved On),” starring artists Robert Plant and Alison Krauss.
The writer and director of the “Gone” music video, Rocky Scheneck, and producer, David Robertson went to SkyDancers in search of fulfilling a set design idea that was “an eye-catching special effect” for the video. The result included Plant and Krauss singing their new crossover country rock song amongst a variety of SkyDancers with their power cords artistically laid out as a type of “maze” on the floor of the stage.
Scheneck said, “I was looking for something really unique and memorable for this music video that was a perfect fit for the unlikely team of Plant, a rock star and Krauss, a country western star singing a crossover song that was targeted at both the rock and country markets.”
He continued, “The SkyDancer inflatables dancing and spinning amongst the performers were the perfect visual effect I needed to convey this feeling. We had jesters, clowns, cowboys, snakes and other wild figures on stage during the performance. We even had an inflated dancing heart on the stage, which was absolutely perfect for the song. At one point during the shooting of the video, one SkyDancer actually bent over as if in deep despair, it was awesome. The SkyDancers were literally acting out the emotions of the song.”
