Music Video: Woodkid “The Golden Age” Featuring Max Richter “Embers”

woodkid-goldenage

“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.

Official Film Trailer: “The Zero Theorem” Directed by Terry Gilliam

thezerotheorem-film

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.

It took David de los Santos 9 months and 50,000 pictures to compile the following footage (the final video has around 5,000 images). He had to find flowers that would open fairly quickly; the interval between images was anywhere between 1 and 10 minutes. The flowers used include: Lillium, hibiscus, carnations, orchids, dandelions, lilies, daisies, alstroemeria, peonies and nigella damask.

Watch the video of the flowers blooming below.
