Earlier this week I shared Jonas Ginter’s fantastic work with tiny planets in motion. I might have even said something like “you haven’t seen one in motion before.” Well, like so many things, when one person solves a problem, other people solve it at the same time too (I’m talking about you Alexander Graham Bell!). Case in point, this freaking amazing music video for Booka Shade’s track Crossing Borders. The film was shot from a quadrotor floating over different locations around California. The result is a major treat for the eyes. Watch this one in HD. [Read more...]

Although this new digital generation may not know what it’s like to get back film that was accidentally double exposed, there have been some phenomenal examples of photographers intentionally layering 2 shots together. Filmmaker Paul Trillo brings the double exposure technique to life in this unique music video for “Be Around” by the LA band The Peach Kings. Based in NYC, Trillo has worked with The Peach Kings on 2 other music videos and was excited to do this one for their upcoming EP Mojo Thunder. [Read more...]

Any musician is familiar with that wonderful thing called reverb – those happy echos of sound that bounce back and hit just right when an instrument is played in a confined space. Today, many of these effects are digitally added to our music to simulate different environments, but that’s not the case with this video. Drummer Julien Audigier teamed up with Audio Zero and Wikidrummers to create one drum pattern played in multiple locations and woven together with magical effect. [Read more...]

Forget all the GIF animations you’re addicted to, and the conventional computer ones too. This wild new music video for the Japanese band SOUR’s single Life Is Music uses rotating CDs to bring a vintage style of animation to the modern day. A phenakistoscope was a nineteenth-century animation technique that used still images marked radially around a disk. When spun and viewed through a small slit, the image was visually prevented from blurring and created the illusion of movement. Designers Masashi Kawamura (of creative agency PARTY) and Kota Iguchi (of design studio Tymote) have updated the phenakistoscope technique, using animations precisely synched to both the shutter speed of their camera and the beat of the song.

While on the beautiful beaches of Costa Rica, Jules Cazedessus sat with her young nephew talking about the planet and some of the issues affecting it today. As they conversed about animal extinction, the changing of the climates, and the rising of oceans, Jules couldn’t help but think : What sort of planet is her nephew going to inherit.

She wrote a song and titled it “S.O.S – Sink or Swim?[Read more...]
