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!
The end of this video is one of the most insane things I’ve seen. I was positive it was faked with computer effects but apparently it was all filmed with a special drone, at half speed, to allow the dancers to move as precisely as possible. Even at half speed the effect that’s created is mind-melting. According to Billboard, by the end of the video the drone is actually filming from nearly half a mile away.
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).
