“The Golden Age” is the final single and video from Woodkid’s debut album, and it is a stunner. He collaborated with composer Max Richter here so the music you hear is actually a blending of “The Golden Age” with a new version of Richter’s “Embers”.
Woodkid, whose real name is Yoann Lemoine, is simply operating on an entirely different level from everyone else. The guy’s only 31; he releases a concept album in a time where most artists are only concerned with singles, directs all his own videos (all of which were brilliant), oh, and found time to be Pharrell’s creative director.
I love his choice for the album’s videos to slowly change from really slick, effects-heavy, spectacles to the exact opposite. This is the type of video that gets me excited about photography.
Watch “The Golden Age” below.
A wonderfully absurd animation by Pansak Sakpiboonrat. Kinda reminds me of Superjail! Watch “Socialist Circle” below.
The official trailer for Terry Gilliam’s latest film “The Zero Theorem” is out and it looks like it might actually be good?! There is a question mark on the end there because, well, “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” was so terrible I kinda completely lost faith. Christoph Waltz does feel like the perfect fit for a Terry Gilliam film though. I really hope the quote in the trailer about this being his greatest work since Brazil is true. Watch the official trailer below.
This video for Digitalism’s “Wolves”, directed by Nelson de Castro, has a similar look to those stereoscopic animated gifs you see all over Tumblr; only these zoom in and out. Nice effect. Watch below.
