Music Video: Vance Joy “Riptide”

vancejoy-riptide

Love the style of this music video by director Dimitri Basil. Apparently he quit school when he was 13, eventually went to film school, and if he hadn’t been on a student visa he would have quit that too.

Watch “Riptide” below!

“Plumb” Animation by Caleb Wood

This is fantastic. Animator Caleb Wood (previously posted here) was invited to make an animation for Prøve Gallery in Duluth, Minnesota, but what he created had a pretty genius twist. Wood drew a stream of consciousness style animation directly onto the gallery walls, in his words it was “a continuous vertical freehand digression”. The video below is the result of moving a camera down each column.

Pow! Wow! Hawaii Video by Werehaus

Friendly dudes outta San Fran, from a studio called Werehaus, put together a bunch of candid footage from their time at Pow! Wow! Hawaii. Kinda hard to tell what’s happening in most of the video as there’s a lot of random footage and no names/titles on screen, but you do get to see some artists and walls I haven’t featured.

My only complaint is that we don’t get to see Andrew Schoultz skateboard in front of everyone’s murals (just his own). Watch the video below.
