First official trailer for Charlie Kaufman’s highly-anticipated, stop-motion animated movie, “Anomalisa” has arrived! Kaufman fans are sure to be pleased as it looks like yet another thoughtful foray into the beautifully mundane struggle that is life. Gorgeous score by Carter Burwell (works with Coen Bros. a lot) as well! Enjoy below!
Epic live performance of “Volcano” by the always incredible, Woodkid. Recorded at Zenith de Paris and directed by Katya Mokolo. Woodkid has also (finally) recorded a studio version of the instrumental track, which is currently available for free download on his website! Full video and link below!
This is funny (or too real to be funny) if you’ve ever worked in the ad world where free work aka “spec work” and pitching has somehow become the norm. But try asking for a trial breakfast or ownership of all the exercises that your trainer shows you and you’d probably get reactions like this!
Watch the brilliant short by agency Zulu Alpha Kilo, exposing the inherent ridiculousness of this industry-specific practice and questioning why creative agencies are expected to give away ideas for free? Video below!
Beautiful 3D animation by Irish animator/director, Stephen McNally. In this music video for Braids’ track “Bunny Rose,” a lonely spirit wanders through the streets of London. McNally received his Masters in animation from the Royal College of Art in 2014. Fellow Royal College alum, Diana Gradinaru, is responsible for the 2D animation. Watch the full video below!
We’ve featured Micah Ganske on the site a couple times (see here and here). Check out this video portrait, directed by Alex Amoling as part of Distinct’s doc series, to see why. In addition to offering a great introduction to his work (which combines elements of 3D printing/sci-fi/virtual reality with sculpture/painting), Ganske shares wonderful insight into his creative process and how his drive toward experimentation staves off creative blocks and cultivates the kind of inspiration that evolves gradually over time. Watch below!
Inspired by Andy Warhol’s “Screen Test” Series, this is less of a typical music video and more of a moving portrait. Pier Pictures’s directing team TS&R attempt to capture a living, breathing moment even if, by the very nature of portraiture, we’re always held at a remove from the images we see. Check out Active Child’s experimental “Midnight Swim/Darling” below!
Dubbed a “no-go zone” by a Fox News reporter, director Cyprien Clément-Delmas, and a selection of North Parisian youth prove otherwise. Beautiful cinematography in this. Check out the vibrant and eclectic “Paris Go Zones” below!
