Demoscene production by Hungarian group Conspiracy won first place in the 64K category at the recent Revision Demoparty held at Saarbrücken, Germany. For those that do not know, the demoscene produce audio/visual experiences with code that run on your PC, and in some cases, try to get fantastic results with as little resouces as possible. This demo is 64K in size (to compare, the BOOOOOOOM! header logo above is 22K) and should for best results be seen on your computer, but embedded below is a video to demonstrate what can be possible (and apparently looks fantastic on 4K screens).
Love this video – flawless styling and art direction, and great storytelling from a pair of directors I’d never heard of before, Barrere & Simon. Watch “All That You Are” below.
This is one of my favourite videos of the year so far. Ace Norton’s marvelous black and white video for Phantoms is a masterpiece. Hats off to choreographers Tracy Phillips and Dominic Carbone, and the director of photography, Alexander Alexandrov. Watch “Voyeur” below.
Director Saam Farahmand’s 2008 documentary following iconic Belgium-based musicians Soulwax on their worldwide tour is now on Vimeo (not sure why they waited until now). If you’ve never seen it, you should. They filmed 120 shows with a single camera. Just a heads up there is a little nudity here and there in case you’re at work blah blah blah. Watch “Part of the Weekend Never Dies” below.
My friend Romke Hoogwaerts over at Mossless has just launched a new video series called in situ, following photographers while they work and interact with their subjects. The debut episode features one of my favourite photographers, a Vancouverite now based in New York, Jody Rogac.
Watch the first episode of in situ below – really enjoyed this.
