After finding the “Red Dust” video below, I poked around on James Vincent McMorrow’s site. He wrote that he reached out to Aoife McArdle immediately after seeing her video for Jon Hopkins’ “Open Eye Signal”. So I had to watch it too, and wow, what an experience! Certainly one of the best videos this year.
I don’t know if I’ve ever posted back to back music video written and directed by the same person. Needless to say, Aoife McArdle is one to watch, and so is the DP, Steve Annis.
Watch “Open Eye Signal” below.
Aoife McArdle has written and directed a trilogy of films for James Vincent McMorrow’s album, “Post-Tropical”. This is the second film, and it’s a beauty. If you’re at work or whatever, there’s a wee bit of nudity.
Watch “Red Dust” below.
Gou Miyagi’s part in Heroin’s “Video Nasty” is the best video part I’ve seen in years. Gou (pronounced “Go”) wanted to shoot it all in his hometown, Okinawa, Japan, and do his entire part without any ollies. There were parts of this where I actually laughed out loud, it’s so creative.
I posted Gou Miyagi’s part in “Overground Broadcasting” back in 2008, so you can see he’s been on a different wavelength for years.
Watch his fantastic video part below!
I should have never watched this, now I won’t be able to work for the rest of the day. Ian Durkin met up with Mr. Van Life Foster Huntington and, well, if you know who either of them are you, know what they did for the next ten days.
If anyone needs me I’ll be on Craigslist looking for camper vans. Watch the video below!
