Pharrell Williams “24 Hours of Happy”

pharrell-24hoursofhappy

Okay we still have a month to go but this is my pick for video of the year! Pharrell Williams and creative director Yoann Lemoine have made the perfect video for the happiest song of 2013. Oh yeah did I mention it’s 24 hours long?

The interactive video for “Happy” allows you to watch Pharrell and other people dancing to the song at any hour of the day!

Watch for the dude at 12:20 AM, he’s totally from The Black Keys “Lonely Boy” video (watch it on Youtube here)!

Also 1:33 AM – I spotted my homies, director duo DANIELS! Their part is the best (watch it on Youtube here).

Manel “Quin dia feia, amics…”

MANEL Quin dia feia, amics...

Great music video for Barcelona-based band, Manel, directed by Victor Carrey (previously posted here and here). I believe the title of the song translates to “What a day it was, friends”. I love the ending.

I feel like it would be good for my health if I could hang with Benny Zenga (remember this and this and this) for a few minutes everyday. Huck Magazine just released this inspiring portrait of Benny and his tall bike.

Amanda Jasnowski (@hokaytokay) Interview

“Like Knows Like” is a superb documentary project, founded by photographer Marije Kuiper and filmmaker Bas Berkhout. This latest episode is a profile on photographer Amanda Jasnowski, better known to the Instagram world as @hokaytokay.

I often wander around on Instagram looking for new work and this funny thing happens time and time again. I scroll down to some older photos buried deep in this person’s feed, and there’s one photo that catches my eye. So I click to leave a friendly comment, and I find the most positive uplifting encouraging message has already been posted! And it’s from Amanda.

It’s been amazing to watch Amanda’s work evolve and her following expand. If you’re a photographer (or anyone) trying to figure out how to survive doing your own thing you could learn a lot from her.
