You won’t see images being moved by hand and an exacto knife done as entertainingly as this! Check out Montreal-based filmmaker/miniaturist Winston Hacking’s “paperteering” skills at work in the video for Toronto punk band Soupcans’ track “Siamese Brutality” below!
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!
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!
Faig Ahmed takes apart traditional Azerbaijani carpets and recreates them, altering their patterns to create compositions with contemporary twists: pixelation, graffiti, optical illusions, and various purposeful imperfections. See more images below!
This is funny (or too real to be funny) if you’ve ever worked in the ad world where free work aka “spec work” and pitching has somehow become the norm. But try asking for a trial breakfast or ownership of all the exercises that your trainer shows you and you’d probably get reactions like this!
Watch the brilliant short by agency Zulu Alpha Kilo, exposing the inherent ridiculousness of this industry-specific practice and questioning why creative agencies are expected to give away ideas for free? Video below!
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.
Guy wants to invent “a mannequin that sprays body spray out of its armpit into my armpit” and it’s… exactly what it sounds like. Directed by Eric Fensler and written by David Neevel, check out this episode of Practically Useful below!
Another cheerfully horrifying episode of Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling’s series, Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared. Like the previous videos (4, 3, 2, 1), this latest instalment is filled with their trademark weirdness and turns for the worst, perfectly capturing the inherent terror and confusion of healthy eating! Enjoy below.
