Kris Moyes is quickly becoming one of the most exciting music video directors to come along in awhile. While none of his videos made it on my Best of 2008 list, they all seemed to have at least one section that got me hitting rewind over and over to analyze what he’d done. Head over to his site to get inspired! Make sure you watch his video for Beck, and his commercial for Cadbury is great too.
Visionary director and photographer Timothy Saccenti has a beautiful print project coming out! Made in collaboration with 3D illustrator Sam Rolfes and heavily inspired by model/actor Sui Nakashima (who Saccenti met on a project for Depeche Mode’s last album), SUI: A Journey in Self-Realization explores identity formation and transformation through a series of computer-generated manipulations.
The cinematic feel of the project is testament to Saccenti and Rolfes process, shooting thousands of frames in studio with Rolfes live scanning and manipulating on set/in real time. SUI consists of 35 unbound images that allow the reader to go through them in whatever way they choose. It also comes packaged in a reflective polychrome box encased in a vellum sheet, a deliberate decision on the part of CYMK Books to enhance the unique, material aspect of the project.
