Love this video for Broken Bells’ “After The Disco”, directed by Nelson de Castro. It’s like a visual palindrome! Really effective use of a fairly simple set, and terrific editing here. Watch the video below.
Photographer Patrick O’Dell’s video series, Epicly Later’d, returns with a feature on the history of Chocolate Skateboards. Filmmaker Spike Jonze, one of the owners of Chocolate, and many of the past and present skaters are interviewed about the brand now celebrating its 20th anniversary.
Madison Bullard has created a brilliant video for the band The Bots re-creating the experience of scrolling gifs on Buzzfeed, or in this case Botsfeed. It’s more entertaining than it sounds, and it just might be the most accurate depiction of Internet culture ever in a music video. Watch “All I Really Want” below, and make it full screen for the full effect.
This weekend I watched David Fincher’s latest film, Gone Girl, and then my friend Abi sent over this great analysis of the specific way Fincher tells stories. The video below is from filmmaker Tony Zhou’s “Every Frame A Painting”, an on-going series of video essays on all things film. This makes me want to go back and watch Gone Girl again (this video does not contain any content about Gone Girl in case you’re worried about spoiling it).
Watch the video below!
When I saw Dimitri Basil’s video for Vance Joy’s “Riptide” earlier this year I made a mental note to keep an eye on him. There’s this absurd energy in his storytelling that is so fresh and engaging. Roman Coppola recently selected Dimitri’s film “Tangerine” as the top short in his one minute film competition. All I can say is I really wish it had been a 20 minute film competition.
Watch “Tangerine” below.
