The first look on “Burn It Down” music video, directed by Joe Hahn, has arrived. The set looks a lot like “New Divide’s” one, but something tells me the special effects are gonna be similar to the ones shown in the NBA Video. Ckeck it out below.
GhostTownMedia have posted the process of making “Iridescent’s” Music Video effects. There are 10 HD videos of the process all different parts from the music video itself. Another amazing release from GTM.
Go HERE to watch all the videos.

Another behind the scenes of ‘Iridescent’ music video surfaced and this time it’s a Noisecreep exclusive. Check out really cool footage below.
Noisecreep is pleased to bring you the exclusive premiere of a behind-the-scenes look at Linkin Park’s artfully constructed video for ‘Iridescent,’ the song that plays during the end credits of the forthcoming film ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon.’
“The video explores how human existence might be affected by the elements of Transformers robots and the threat of the Decepticons,” Linkin Park turntablist Joe Hahn, who directed the video, told Noisecreep. “What would it be like to be citizens in a decaying universe? I tried a lot of new things here, and we had a lot of fun shooting it.”
Both of Hahn’s points are made abundantly clear in the behind-the-scenes clip as well as in the finished video. Hahn says that the goal of the video is to combine the soulfulness of what the band does with the soulfulness of the film.
The video is somewhat abstract, shot in black, white and grey tones. That aesthetic carries over in this behind-the-scenes footage, giving it an authentic, homemade quality. Singer Mike Shinoda and Hahn are featured prominently in the clip, plopping on crash pads that were supplied for shots where the band members fall forward in slow motion.
Fair warning: if your happen to be squeamish about serpents, several moments in this footage will make you incredibly uncomfortable and creeped out! Shinoda is also seen handling diamond carpet pythons as they slither all over his arm. Shinoda handles the creatures with love and care, as if he has no fear of them. Be sure and keep your eyes peeled for the shot where he sings with the snakes wrapped around his hands; it is a haunting, beautiful and artistic image.
Shinoda also lets us know that one of the snakes makes “a big doody.” A snake actually pooped on him and he says it smells pretty bad. Well, it is poop!
After watching this exclusive Linkin Park footage, we know you’ll want and need more insider access, so make sure you head over here to watch the band’s ‘LPTV’ series, where they document life on the road, time in the studio and much more.
The final video is tri-chromatic, visually stunning piece of work that matches the contemplative nature of the song, with singer Chester Bennington flashing white lights rather than eyeballs while Shinoda looks at the camera with one white eyeball. The song is one of the quieter and prettier moments of Linkin Park’s eclectic catalog, and the video reflects that.
Transformer robots also appear in the video, providing the only brief flashes of color in the clip.
DailyStar.co.uk has posted an interesting quote by Chester regarding the Transformers’ Props.
CB: “We would be over the moon if Michael wanted to give us a prop like some old car that turned into a robot. But he hasn’t offered us one yet.”
As for ‘Iridescent’ Music Video, LP has posted it in HD on their youtube account…

Entertainment tonight JUST posted this interview they did with Chester and Mike behind the scenes of ‘Iridescent’.
Joe has a new blog post up on linkinpark.com and had a few words to say regarding the music video.
I present to you our new music video for “Iridescent,” from the movie, Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The video explores how human existence might be affected by the elements of Transformers robots and the threat of the Decepticons. What would it be like to be citizens in a decaying universe? I tried a lot of new things here, and we had a lot of fun shooting it. Hope you enjoy.
