I wanted this video to be even longer, it’s so good! Ynon Lan walked around NYC and made these fantastic little stop-motion pieces stitching together photos of things he saw over and over: taxis, brownstones, even Starbucks. Watch “Still NYC” below.
Director Kris Moyes has pulled off one of the riskiest music videos I’ve seen. I really respect how he tries something completely different from one video to the next. His video for The Presets’ “My People” several years back is still one of my favourites, and I think it would have been really easy to turn out several more videos using the same techniques, but he didn’t. I’m so inspired by this.

This video of David Aufdembrinke’s six-week trip to India might have been a lot more boring if it weren’t for some fantastic editing and some really unique colour grading. I don’t fully understand how the final effect was achieved but I know it involved an old VHS tape, a magnet, and lots of compositing. The editing style is very similar to that crazy video from Turkey, and if you’re an editor you may find yourself trying to advance frame by frame to understand how certain sequences were cut together.

Really enjoying this series called, California Inspires Me, a collaboration between Google Play and California Sunday. A creative person is interviewed for each episode and then an animator creates visuals to go with the person’s voice. Last time I posted about this series it was Jack Black talking about growing up in California; this time it’s Mark Mothersbaugh animated by Barcelona-based studio, Manson. Watch the animation below.
The effect in this video is so simple; I can’t believe I haven’t seen this done before. This single channel video by artist Daniel Crooks was commissioned by Michael and Silvia Kantor for the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, with sound and music by Byron Scullin. I love the moment when the camera makes the right turn in the alley way.
Watch “An Embroidery of Voids” here until I can get permission to embed the video.
