The perfect short film to put your life and/or procrastination into perspective. “Sum” by London-based filmmaker Studiocanoe is based on the book, Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives, by neuroscientist and writer David Eagleman. If you’re keen to know the total amount of consecutive time (days/months/years) you’ll spend doing things like clipping your nails or staring into the refrigerator in your lifetime, watch below!

Artist Spotlight: Teresa Esgaio


Lovely drawings by Portugal-based artist Teresa Esgaio, using graphite, charcoal, and soft pastel. The dimensions of each drawing is a square meter; quite a lot bigger than I first assumed. I stumbled upon Esgaio’s work via October Submissions (which should encourage you to submit this month!) More images below!

Booooooom Reader Submissions: November


Here is this month’s submission post! Thanks to everyone who submitted work to the October Reader Submissions post I’m still going through all the great stuff in there.

For those of you who are new around here, this is the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Please do not send in your work via email, my inbox can’t handle the hundreds of submissions each month.

Thanks again to everyone for up-voting work you like and leaving the positive comments to each other, it really pumps people up, and helps me see what work you like. I encourage you to share your work here because these posts get a lot of traffic and even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen, and definitely sends traffic to your own websites.

Please share your work here this month. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

Submission guidelines:

1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.

Music Video: New Build “Luminous Freedom”


Quirky collaboration between director George Wu and photographer John Short for New Build’s track “Luminous Freedom.” The video features an amusing series of visual puns based on famous names, cleverly strung together in the vein of 17th century still life paintings. More images and full video below.

Artist Spotlight: Marc Sommer


Strasbourg, France-based artist Marc Sommer creates the kind of visuals that you can’t unsee; images that embed themselves deep in your subconscious. I don’t know what this image means but I can’t stop thinking about it. More of his striking work below.

Short Music Film: Alagoas “1981”


I quite like this short by director, Del, that fall somewhere between music videos and narrative films. A little light on story here (there’s enough) but worth watching for the stellar work by the DP, Will Etchebehere. Watch “1981” below.

Video of the Day: STOMP and Harlem Globetrotters Make Basketball Music


This is so good! 8 STOMP performers teamed up with Globetrotter stars Bull Bullard, Cheese Chisholm, Firefly Fisher, and Handles Franklin in this fun collaboration directed by STOMP creators Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas. The final video is all one continuous take, and somehow it only took 7 tries to nail it despite all the ambulance sirens, car traffic, and school children that surrounded this outdoor basketball court in New York City. The video was filmed with a three-axis, gyroscopic-stabilized hand-held MoVI (I don’t really know what that means but I figured someone would ask about the camera setup). Watch below!
