An American Tail Remix.

Last month I posted that fabulous Alice video and this week I received an email from Jacques Christo. He was so inspired by the video that he went and made a downtempo track from his favourite animated film: An American Tail (great choice!).

I think a little more interaction between the samples and the cutting of the visuals would help but i particularly like his opening when the beat starts! The music is quite beautiful – it’s a shame you can’t download it.

An American Tail has a great melancholic feel to it and I remember other animated films from around this time like All Dogs Go To Heaven, having a similar feeling – It’s perfectly suited for this kind of music.

Nice work Jacques – this is what the site is all about! You get inspired by something here, you go out and make something, and you can come back here and share it (hopefully inspiring someone else to do the same!)

Boom.

“15/20” by Photographer Neta Dror

 

In 2011, Tel Aviv-based photographer Neta Dror photographed 6 Israeli teens, returning 5 years later to photograph them each again. Now in their 20s, Dror notes that the biggest change isn’t physical but emotional:

“It was incredible to see how differently they presented themselves to me and to the camera: all grew more confident and were less willing to expose themselves. It was clear they were now more aware of who they are and what part of themselves they wanted to show.”

Illustrator Kyung Me explores the various ways we construct false identities in romantic relationships with a series of drawings surrounding a character named Copy Kitty. Going to great lengths to be accepted and adored, Copy Kitty gradually descends into a vortex of fantasy and paranoia. Check out more images from Me’s elaborate narrative series below.
