Oops

“Oops”, an experimental video by Chris Beckman was a winner in this year’s Vimeo Awards. Beckman scoured Youtube for people dropping their cameras and used this motif to stitch together a compelling 10-minute adventure. The transition at 4:35 is incredible!

    The concept is way beyond well thought, but i have to say some of the footage just ruined it for me in. Also, some fun trips in there too, eh!

  • so

    this made me so happy i wanted to cry

  • emilyrugburn

    this is really great. It’s a beautiful take on the raw and the real, an experience that captures a feeling of familiarity but shared with total strangers.
    Reality TV eat your heart out!

    Meh, still don’t like other people enough to appreciate it, someday soon though. The thing I enjoyed was the last clip, beautiful, couldn’t imagine how much joy that child was feeling.

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.
