André Maat brings some little pieces of wood to life with a terrific stop-motion animation. Watch “Woodoo” below!
Designer James Victore has a really great Youtube Channel you should subscribe to. It’s called “Burning Questions” and he uses the outlet to directly answer questions sent to him, about life and making good work. The man definitely knows a thing or two, having some of his brilliant posters remain in MoMA’s collection. I should note the image at the top of this post is not his work, it was drawn by his friend, artist Jon Burgerman, for one of the intros.
James and I emailed back and forth a bit and he was as friendly and down to earth as he is in the videos. I asked him to pick out a few of his favourite videos so far and he kindly obliged, adding that he loves reading the heartfelt comments. So if any of the videos strike a chord with you, leave him a message, I know he’ll appreciate it!
Have a look at the videos James selected below:
Filmmakers Ben Stoddard and David Ehrenreich captured a lovely portrait of American folk artist Leonard Knight before he passed away. Knight spent three decades building Salvation Mountain, a monument to love, in the desert outside Niland, California.
Watch “The Man Behind The Mountain” below.
“Run” is a short film by directors Matt Larson and Zack Spiger, featuring several songs by Talisco, from his debut album of the same name. I like when these multi-track videos are done well. The story kinda gets a little lost by the end, but this film certainly has a spectacular opening, and gorgeous cinematography throughout. FYI: There’s a little violence and nudity here.
Watch “Run” below.
This animation by Johnny Kelly poses the question: “If for one day you had the power to make your world work better, what would you change?”
Thoroughly enjoyed this, watch the video below.
