Music Video: Eating Out “Pucker”

eatingout-pucker

Here’s a video for Vancouver punk band “Eating Out”, directed by Dave Ehrenreich with cinematography by Liam Mitchell. Doing drugs all day isn’t my thing but I feel like Eating Out’s video captures youth culture in the same way that old Linklater films and classic music videos, like Smashing Pumpkins’ “1979”, did. Watch “Pucker” below.

FKA Twigs has just released a video for “Glass & Patron”, which she directed for the 2015 Youtube Video Awards. This was really the only video I liked. The song will be released as part of an EP later this year. In the video the dancer turned singer (turned director) gives birth to a vogue battle in the woods. Watch the video below.

Music Video: Mysteries “Newly Thrown” Directed by Kris Moyes

mysteries-krismoyes

Director Kris Moyes has pulled off one of the riskiest music videos I’ve seen. I really respect how he tries something completely different from one video to the next. His video for The Presets’ “My People” several years back is still one of my favourites, and I think it would have been really easy to turn out several more videos using the same techniques, but he didn’t. I’m so inspired by this.

Video of the Day: A VHS Style Journey Through India in 4 Minutes

albanendlos-umda-01albanendlos-umda-03

This video of David Aufdembrinke’s six-week trip to India might have been a lot more boring if it weren’t for some fantastic editing and some really unique colour grading. I don’t fully understand how the final effect was achieved but I know it involved an old VHS tape, a magnet, and lots of compositing. The editing style is very similar to that crazy video from Turkey, and if you’re an editor you may find yourself trying to advance frame by frame to understand how certain sequences were cut together.
