Onwards by James Jarvis

Lovin’ this animation by James Jarvis. Directed by Richard Kenworthy, and music courtesy of Caribou (“Crayon” was a great choice). Nike did sponsor this piece but I am enjoying this trend of really unobtrusive marketing.

    This completely blew me away.. I don’t think I can remember when an animation online has seriously captured so much of my attention.

    I really enjoyed the way he did the shading of the runner.. especially coming down that hill, it really surprised me.

    So simple and basic with it’s colour, but so much depth to it – the music added another dimensions.

    I agree if sponsors are going to support this kind of advertising, i’m all for it. I would love to find some type of online directory showcasing all sorts of advertising campagins, but in every language all countries, for the same products, organized by date.. I’m sure there are a lot more of these hidden gems out there.

    Anyways thanks for finding this!

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”
