This wins two awards: Video of the Day and Best of Instagram. I can’t believe I didn’t know about Adam Carpenter’s Instagram @adamscarpenters until now – hands down my new favourite person to follow! The video he just made for Shake It Little Tina’s “Low Cut Connie” is officially my way of life, and I would like to request that it be projected onto the ceiling above my casket at my wake, thank you.

Untitled-2Untitled-1Untitled-3

I wanted this video to be even longer, it’s so good! Ynon Lan walked around NYC and made these fantastic little stop-motion pieces stitching together photos of things he saw over and over: taxis, brownstones, even Starbucks. Watch “Still NYC” below.

This is the best. Earl Sinclair of the T.V. show Dinosaurs performs Biggie’s “Hypnotize”. Perfect editing by Twitter user Benjaminrrrrr, just disappointed that at 1:21 it didn’t cut to the baby. Watch the hilarious video below.

Music Video: Mysteries “Newly Thrown” Directed by Kris Moyes

mysteries-krismoyes

Director Kris Moyes has pulled off one of the riskiest music videos I’ve seen. I really respect how he tries something completely different from one video to the next. His video for The Presets’ “My People” several years back is still one of my favourites, and I think it would have been really easy to turn out several more videos using the same techniques, but he didn’t. I’m so inspired by this.

Video of the Day: A VHS Style Journey Through India in 4 Minutes

albanendlos-umda-01albanendlos-umda-03

This video of David Aufdembrinke’s six-week trip to India might have been a lot more boring if it weren’t for some fantastic editing and some really unique colour grading. I don’t fully understand how the final effect was achieved but I know it involved an old VHS tape, a magnet, and lots of compositing. The editing style is very similar to that crazy video from Turkey, and if you’re an editor you may find yourself trying to advance frame by frame to understand how certain sequences were cut together.
