Video of the Day: Black Atlass “Jewels” Directed by Yoann Lemoine

blackatlass-jewels

Love this video Yoann Lemoine directed for Black Atlass. Lemoine went back to his roots as a CGI artist and spent 8 months, in between touring as Woodkid, creating every shot in this on his own. He described his process saying “I used a DIY 3D scan system that rebuilds models from multiple still images, and what we call camera mapping” (source). I’d love access to a 3D scan system like this. Watch the gorgeous video below.

Funny and Creepy Video of the Day: “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 3″

donthugmeimscared

My favourite video series returns with a new episode! “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared” is a project by Becky Sloan & Joseph Pelling (previously featured here and here) and is quite honestly one of the best things on the Internet. The writing is so funny (and creepy), the sets and costumes are terrific, and the combination of live-action and animated elements are flawless.

Satisfying Video of the Day: The Making of a Kokeshi Japanese Wooden Doll

Watch Yasuo Okazaki turn a piece of wood into a beautiful Japanese wood doll, called a kokeshi. Seeing the doll take shape on the lathe, and watching Okazaki bring it to life with precise brush strokes is extremely satisfying. Watch the video below.

Video of the Day: “Interesting Ball” A Surreal Short Film Directed by DANIELS

interesting-ball

This short film for Dazed’s Visionaries is perhaps the most absurd thing that Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert have made together so far. The two directors, better known as Daniels, took over the entire Internet earlier this year with their video for Dj Snake and Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What” (watch it here) and have made a name for themselves turning immature ideas into memorable videos.

Watch their film “Interesting Ball” below.

Skateboarding in Helsinki Airport

Finnish skateboarder turned photographer Arto Saari hosted a pretty unique invitational recently, giving skaters the opportunity to session Helsinki Airport. The video is definitely a promotion for the airport and airline involved, and they probably should have cut out 90% of the voiceover, but it’s still pretty cool. Somehow I don’t see this happening in any American airport any time soon.

Watch “Match Made in HEL” below!

Video of the Day: Trippy Hand Drawn Animation by Gabe Mangold

gabemangold-lastex2

Okay, this animation by Gabe Mangold is a masterpiece, and there wasn’t a single frame that I could pick that would do it justice. It’s the freshest hand-drawn animation I’ve seen in a long time. The song, Girl Seizure” by Last Ex, is wonderfully strange already but the video takes it to another dimension altogether. Found via our Booooooom Vimeo Group.

Watch the animation below!

Roy-Kafri-Mayokero1

Strong contender for video of the year. I’ve seen several similar concepts but none done so flawlessly. Superb video for Roy Kafri by director Vania Heymann. Watch the music video below!
