Designer James Victore has a really great Youtube Channel you should subscribe to. It’s called “Burning Questions” and he uses the outlet to directly answer questions sent to him, about life and making good work. The man definitely knows a thing or two, having some of his brilliant posters remain in MoMA’s collection. I should note the image at the top of this post is not his work, it was drawn by his friend, artist Jon Burgerman, for one of the intros.
James and I emailed back and forth a bit and he was as friendly and down to earth as he is in the videos. I asked him to pick out a few of his favourite videos so far and he kindly obliged, adding that he loves reading the heartfelt comments. So if any of the videos strike a chord with you, leave him a message, I know he’ll appreciate it!
Have a look at the videos James selected below:
Sha Hwang has created a bookmarklet that you can add to your browser and use it to slitscan any Youtube or Vimeo video! Just drag this link to your bookmark bar: slitscanner. Then open a video in Vimeo (make sure you are using HTML5) and click on the bookmarklet. SO COOOL.
I created the above image using this Lazer Sword video (this is also the example Sha uses on his site). Sha says users can download the code and modify it. He’s publishing slitscans to: shahwang.tumblr.com
Prepare to get nothing done today! Introducing Yooouuutuuube.com! Every video on Youtube just got 1,000 times cooler! Now you can watch every frame of the video play simultaneously. That remix of Alice in Wonderland is waaaaay cooler now. I am going to load every music video ever made into this thing! BRB (in a thousand years).
This is where you scream ‘why didn’t I think of this???’ and jump off a bridge! Israeli musician Kutiman has crafted an album entirely from Youtube clips, and it is nothing short of brilliant. Dj Shadow, Mike Realm and Pb Wolf look out. Thanks to Dutch for the heads up!

Do you remember the guy who took a photo of himself everyday for 6 years and turned it into a video on Youtube? That guy was Noah Kalina and his video now has over 10 million views. For whatever reason I never looked into who he was and only discovered recently that he is actually an amazing photographer and not just some “youtube guy”.
It’s been a little bit since the mind-blowing success of the first Youtube Challenge – so here’s challenge #2. Find the best example of a “Boom” on youtube. Open for interpretation – the funnier the better. Leave a comment with a link to your choice. I’ll add your youtube videos to this post. Andrew Pancubit posted this first video on Booooooom’s fan page which gave me the idea.
Andrew P. – Haha this one will be hard to beat. Love the graphics on the giant video screen. Nice one Mr. P.
Rest of the submissions after the jump!
