Video of the Day: “Interesting Ball” A Surreal Short Film Directed by DANIELS

interesting-ball

This short film for Dazed’s Visionaries is perhaps the most absurd thing that Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert have made together so far. The two directors, better known as Daniels, took over the entire Internet earlier this year with their video for Dj Snake and Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What” (watch it here) and have made a name for themselves turning immature ideas into memorable videos.

Watch their film “Interesting Ball” below.

Skateboarding in Helsinki Airport

Finnish skateboarder turned photographer Arto Saari hosted a pretty unique invitational recently, giving skaters the opportunity to session Helsinki Airport. The video is definitely a promotion for the airport and airline involved, and they probably should have cut out 90% of the voiceover, but it’s still pretty cool. Somehow I don’t see this happening in any American airport any time soon.

Watch “Match Made in HEL” below!

Video of the Day: Trippy Hand Drawn Animation by Gabe Mangold

gabemangold-lastex2

Okay, this animation by Gabe Mangold is a masterpiece, and there wasn’t a single frame that I could pick that would do it justice. It’s the freshest hand-drawn animation I’ve seen in a long time. The song, Girl Seizure” by Last Ex, is wonderfully strange already but the video takes it to another dimension altogether. Found via our Booooooom Vimeo Group.

Watch the animation below!
