Video of the Day: “Interesting Ball” A Surreal Short Film Directed by DANIELS

interesting-ball

This short film for Dazed’s Visionaries is perhaps the most absurd thing that Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert have made together so far. The two directors, better known as Daniels, took over the entire Internet earlier this year with their video for Dj Snake and Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What” (watch it here) and have made a name for themselves turning immature ideas into memorable videos.

Watch their film “Interesting Ball” below.

“Dr. Easy” by Shynola

dr easy by shynola
This story about a futuristic medical robot had me at the edge of my seat. It’s an adaptation of the first chapter of “The Red Men”, a sci-fi novel by Matthew De Abaitua.

Shynola are hoping this short impresses the right people so their dream of a full length feature will become a reality. Would love to see that happen!

Born Free

Romain Gavras releases another controversial music video, this time for Born Free by M.I.A. It is similar in many ways to his video for Justice, however the violent gang roaming around this time is a group of soldiers. What is the message here? I won’t deny it is beautifully shot but I find it quite morally ambiguous.

Synesthesia by Terri Timely

Not too long ago I mentioned Joanna Newsom’s The Sprout and the Bean and shortly after that I got an email from the video’s director, Ian Kibbey! He is a regular reader of this site and directs videos with his partner Corey Creasey, under the name Terri Timely. They just finished a little short called Synesthesia and it’s brilliant.
