I’ve got a thing for stop motion films and can’t wait to try my hand at it someday. Until then, I will continue to be inspired by this awesome video by Ithyle Griffith and Angela Kohler, creators of the Amazon Kindle commercials. Hope you guys are enjoying your weekend…
I was instantly captivated by The Avett Brothers‘ new video for their song Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise, which addresses the temporary nature of our mentality, buildings and the world around us. Artist Jason Ryan Mitcham brought their vision to life by altering a single painting 2600 times–10 alterations to the painting equaled one second of film. Amazing.
Taylor Steele‘s film, Castles In The Sky, was filmed in 5 locations (India, Iceland, Vietnam, Peru and Africa) in a span of 3 years, following some of the best surfers in the world to the farthest reaches of the known surf world and beyond. I’m in love with this trailer: the song, the images…everything.
This man behind the counter at this Punjabi bodega/food spot on 1st and Ave A has it going on! Listen to him bust out in Bhangra, a type of music and dance from the Punjab region. The Punjabi farmers who first started this folk music were celebrating the Vaisakhi, a harvest festival, which marks the beginning of a new solar year and new harvest season. This video brings me back to my days living in the East Village…love it!
