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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
