Sophie Muller’s work can often go unnoticed as I mentioned yesterday with her Garbage work. That is also the case when it comes to her work with Coldplay. When people think of Song 303- “Trouble” by Coldplay, most people think of the breakthrough video by Tim Pope with the 2D cutouts on the 3D landscape. It’s a great video….it’s also the second video for that song. The first was made by Sophie Muller and has a very different vibe. It’s got a simple beauty to it like many of Sophie’s videos and has spectacular lighting and shot choices (which is Muller’s M.O.). Most people don’t know it exists and for the life of me, I have no clue why they made a second video. Maybe they thought a video about a kidnapping victim wouldn’t be palpatable for the US audience (Europe got to see Muller’s version)? Who knows but here they both are. Tell me which one you prefer:
