Extremely clever concept for indie rocker, Darwin Deez’s track “The Mess She Made.” Oscar Hudson is seriously on a roll (we just featured his video for Gilligan Moss) using animatronic arms to overlap one half of Darwin Deez’s face with enlarged versions of various currency. Watch the hilarious and perfectly executed video below!
You know when you get really into a song and you just listen to it over and over again? Well director Oscar Hudson captures something of that feeling. Only with more eggs. The beauty of this video is that the effect was created with actors instead of compositing in post! Watch looping taken to the extreme in the music video for Gilligan Moss’ track “Choreograph” below!
Performance artist, Jared Bark’s work was recently on display at Southfirst Gallery in New York City. Curated by Maika Pollack, Photobooth Works, 1969-1976 marked Bark’s first solo exhibition in over 35 years. While he initially used actual public booths around the city, Bark eventually acquired one of his own, experimenting with various interconnected lines and shapes in addition to using his own body for different sets of photographs. See more images below.
Quirky short by award-winning filmmaker/animator, Meghann Artes. Especially love her use of handmade elements and bright colours. Artes’ hybrid animation/live-action style (which involves frame by frame pixilation using Dragonframe software, 2 Macs, and multiple cameras) also gives it a really fun, cartoony-vibe. Watch “Speed Dating” below!
Mexican-American artist, Ramiro Gomez Jr.’s work showcases the contributions of domestic labourers in the Los Angeles area, by placing them into the scenes of luxury they are responsible for maintaining but appear largely absent after their work is done. Part of The Atlantic‘s American Dreams series, this video portrait by Kelly Loudenberg, gives insight into the personal motivation behind his work, featuring Gomez’s parents who are Mexican immigrants themselves, working jobs similar to those he depicts. Watch the full documentary short below!
Fantastic re-imaginings of modern movie releases, spliced together with actors and elements from older films. With a B.A. in Film and Digital Media, New York-based graphic designer/illustrator Peter Stults spends much of his time critiquing movie posters and (lucky for us) creating his own.
Check out more images from the fifth volume of his ongoing project “What If: Movies ReImagined for Another Time and Place” below! Which of these films would you wanna see?
