Love this video Yoann Lemoine directed for Black Atlass. Lemoine went back to his roots as a CGI artist and spent 8 months, in between touring as Woodkid, creating every shot in this on his own. He described his process saying “I used a DIY 3D scan system that rebuilds models from multiple still images, and what we call camera mapping” (source). I’d love access to a 3D scan system like this. Watch the gorgeous video below.
My favourite video series returns with a new episode! “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared” is a project by Becky Sloan & Joseph Pelling (previously featured here and here) and is quite honestly one of the best things on the Internet. The writing is so funny (and creepy), the sets and costumes are terrific, and the combination of live-action and animated elements are flawless.
Mount Gay has launched a series called “The Original Spirits” highlighting artisans and craftsmen who make things the good old fashion way; with their bare hands. The videos celebrate these individuals and draw parallels to the brand’s own handcrafted history of rum-making in Barbados.
This episode features James Tucker, co-founder of the celebrated San Francisco-based letterpress studio, The Aesthetic Union. In the video Tucker works on a woodcut and makes a print on a hand fed, foot treadle operated, press from 1910. Watch the video below.
San Francisco-based artist Ben Venom cuts up heavy metal and motorcycle t-shirts and turns them into fantastic handmade quilts. More images and a video of his process below.
