Video: Epic Japanese School Girl Chase

Love the idea for this video featuring Muneomi Senju, the drummer from the Japanese band, The Boredoms. The use of so many jump cuts here gives the whole thing a really weird unpredictable vibe to it. Watch the video below!

Each year, Nixon organises one of the most remote surf contests on the planet. Ten of the best European surfers are invited to an unknown surf destination, to battle against their own fears without the pressures of the public or the press. In June 2014, the wild terrain of Kamchatka, Russia, was chosen to host The Nixon Surf Challenge.

Watch “Hotel Nowhere – Kamtchatka” below.

Music Video: Alt-J “Hunger of the Pine”

alt-j-hungerofthepine

One of my favourite video directors, Nabil, returns with another terrific video (you might remember this video for James Blake and this video for Just Blaze and Baauer). Alt-J’s “Hunger of the Pine” is a little bit violent, just to warn you. Watch the video below.

Music Video: Woodkid “The Golden Age” Featuring Max Richter “Embers”

woodkid-goldenage

“The Golden Age” is the final single and video from Woodkid’s debut album, and it is a stunner. He collaborated with composer Max Richter here so the music you hear is actually a blending of “The Golden Age” with a new version of Richter’s “Embers”.

Woodkid, whose real name is Yoann Lemoine, is simply operating on an entirely different level from everyone else. The guy’s only 31; he releases a concept album in a time where most artists are only concerned with singles, directs all his own videos (all of which were brilliant), oh, and found time to be Pharrell’s creative director.

I love his choice for the album’s videos to slowly change from really slick, effects-heavy, spectacles to the exact opposite. This is the type of video that gets me excited about photography.

Watch “The Golden Age” below.

Official Film Trailer: “The Zero Theorem” Directed by Terry Gilliam

thezerotheorem-film

The official trailer for Terry Gilliam’s latest film “The Zero Theorem” is out and it looks like it might actually be good?! There is a question mark on the end there because, well, “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” was so terrible I kinda completely lost faith. Christoph Waltz does feel like the perfect fit for a Terry Gilliam film though. I really hope the quote in the trailer about this being his greatest work since Brazil is true. Watch the official trailer below.
