Phoenix “Trying To Be Cool”

Phoenix Trying To Be Cool music video directed by CANADA
This is my early pick for video of the year (and possibly the last few years). Director collective CANADA teamed up with The Creators Project for one of the most ambitious music videos in recent memory. The footage was captured live, by two separate film crews, and the shots continuously alternate between the two crews.

A countdown clock is visible in many of the shots, it was used to tell each crew how long they had to film their scene while the other prepared to capture the next. This concept is pure madness, and I love the energy in the final product because of it.

This is NEXT LEVEL. You are about to watch Danny MacAskill do what every kid dreams of: Shrink down to the size of his own toys! Red Bull constructed giant-sized kids toys specifically for this film and MacAskill destroys them all. Hot wheels track, bouncey balls, pencil crayons, you name it.

No matter what thumbnail image I use here it won’t do this video justice. Watch Danny MacAskill’s “Imaginate” below!
