Let’s Colour

A couple months ago I received an invitation to Jodhpur, India, to be a part of the Let’s Colour project. The idea was to bring colour to community spaces around the world in an effort to encourage the people in those areas.

I got a rush visa and was all set to go but there was a mix-up with my flights and I couldn’t get there in time. Lucky for us, award-winning director Adam Berg made it to India (as well as London, Paris, and Rio de Janeiro) and has put together a beautiful look at this inspiring project.

Watch the video below!

    Check out this project too, also in Rio, Brazil – apparently not related to the Lets Colour project, but based on the exact same concept. The slums looks awesome!

    This are the kind of projects brands with eco paintings should sponsor, usually they just paint one wall brand it and leave it at that (in México it happens oftenly, like unfinished renovation urban projects) but in this it’s the magnitude that makes it so relevant… color wins the battle, I definitely loved this post.

Music Video: Rapper Dumbfoundead’s Hilarious Response to Hollywood ‘Whitewashing’

dumbfoundead-safe

Hollywood whitewashing has been in the news a lot lately. One catalyst being the announcement earlier this year that Scarlett Johansson landed a lead role in the remake of Ghost in the Shell, and many wondering why it couldn’t have gone to someone of Asian descent. Korean rapper Dumbfoundead (Jonathan Park) offers up a humorous response, adding himself into a montage of blockbuster films and popular television shows, playing everyone from John Snow to Danny Tanner.

Park told to NBC News that he “wanted to flip the script on the conversation everybody was having about the whitewashing of Hollywood and ‘yellow-wash’ some of the most iconic films starring white male leads.”

This is definitely one of my favourite music videos this year! Watch Dumbfoundead’s “Safe” on Booooooom TV.
