Through The Ground Glass: A Beautiful Portrait of a Large Format Photographer

josephallenfreeman

“Through The Ground Glass” is a stunning portrait of Joseph Allen Freeman, a large format photographer. I imagine there was a lot of pressure on the directors, Taylor Hawkins and Nick Bolton, in trying to capture a subject on video when that subject is someone who shoots large format film. They did it brilliantly though, the footage is gorgeous. It’s also really great to hear Freeman speak so candidly about the process. Watch the video below.

Video Premiere: Wildbirds & Peacedrums “Keep Some Hope”

wildbirds-peacedrums

I’m excited to debut this video from one of my favourite bands, the husband and wife duo of Andreas Werliin and Mariam Wallentin, better known as Wildbirds & Peacedrums. They have such a raw energy, unsettling in the best way possible, driven mostly by Mariam’s vocals and lots of drumming from both of them. If you’re unfamiliar with their music here’s a couple amazing live examples to watch here and here (the 6-min mark of the second link gets me pumped every time).

“Keep Some Hope” is the infectious new single off of their latest album Rhythm. The video was directed by Anders Malmberg, you can watch it below!

Everything in between is classic Draplin; his excitement about vintage graphic design work is fun to watch. Peep the video below!
