Music Video: Tourist “Illuminate” Feat. Years & Years


Super fresh style in this animation directed by Nicolas Ménard, for Tourist’s song “Illuminate”. The visual style is a nod to two video games: X (Gameboy), and Super World Runner (NES).

“In 1992, a man receives love letters in Korean. Since Google Translate doesn’t exist yet, he’s left confused. What could this mean?”

Watch the animation below.

Video of the Day: Animation Continuously Morphs Through Popular Films


Animator Chris Carboni created this terrific animation which continuously morphs through popular films. The piece is a music video for a band called Cruisr, but sorta feels completely unrelated to the music. I actually muted the video and listened to it with Flying Lotus’ Parisian Goldfish (much better). I expected to see a lot of classic films here but it was nice to see more recent films like Under The Skin included too. How many of the films can you recognize? Watch the animation below.
