1xRun put together a nice little recap video of Pangeaseed’s second annual Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans festival in Cozumel, Mexico. The event featured the work of many of our friends: Smithe, Caratoes, Cryptik, Faith47, Hueman, Meggs, Tatiana Suarez, Tristan Eaton, tons more. 11 artists from Mexico, and 35 artists in total, covered Cozumel in positive messages, paying respect to our beautiful oceans. Watch the video below.
Latvian filmmaker, Gints Zilbalodis, manages to capture a lot of emotion in his latest short about a trumpet player, struggling to cope with the loss of his hearing after a freak accident. Great use of sound and music by Bertrams Pauls Purvišķis as well. Watch the full video below!
Regardless of your position on drones, it’s impossible not to be taken by the amazing shots Ian Wood has put together in his short-form video, “Los Angeles.” While some famous landmarks didn’t make it in, Wood includes a lot of public art (shoutout to our friend Jeff Soto at the 5:20 mark!). See here for a complete list of locations and watch the full video below.

You may remember a post about Foster Huntington’s Kickstarter for The Cinder Cone back in February. Huntington was also the man behind the #vanlife hashtag on Instagram, cataloguing the time he spent living out of his camper van.
“The Wanderlust of #Vanlife” is a short documentary, produced by The Atlantic, focusing on the people who choose to undertake the van lifestyle and the community it’s created. Watch the video below!
If you harbour strong opinions about the superiority of “practical effects” to CG (computer graphics), you may want to think again. This video essay suggests CG’s bad reputation comes from the fact that we only notice something is CG when it’s done poorly. Whereas the best CG often goes completely unnoticed.

Another flawless animation by London-based 2d and 3d animator Simon Landrein. This one for Silkie’s “Love Affair”. His style is so recognizable now, and he just knows how to pare down everything to just what’s necessary to tell a story. Fantastic work. Watch the animation below.
