Gotye – Easy Way Out

Posted February 28, 2012

YouTube Preview Image
Oh Yeah Wow has just finished this clever music video for Gotye which is a mix of live action and stop motion with almost no CG. The shoot was intense, that Oh Yeah Wow says they slept in the bed and ate out of the refrigerator during production.

Psyop’s Cheetah

Posted February 27, 2012


Psyop’s latest for MiO, the new liquid water enhancer, via Taxi, New York, features some amazing (as always) character design. I also love that the main character, Cheetah, is wearing a Psyop jacket (I have one too – mine is black with read. It’s amazing).

This is the first in a series of spots for the new product.

See the spot and read more from Psyop.

Love

Posted February 23, 2012


I love the film, “Fan Club“, that is currently playing when you go to Love Magazine.

It was launched on Valentine’s Day, in partnership with Louis Vuitton, and it’s directed by Ruth Hogben and features accessories from the spring 2012 Louis Vuitton collection in a retro haze of pink, vintage LV swim caps, and handmade feather fans. Love.

Google Street View

Posted February 23, 2012


Jon Rafman’s Tumblr blog, The Nine Eyes of Google Street View, is a photo project documenting some of the stranger photos captured by Google. Many are quite beautiful, some are disturbing, and as you’d expect, some are just very odd. But all are unique.

I’ve posted some of my favs here.

Gonjasufi – The Blame

Posted February 22, 2012

In his latest music video for the iconic Gonjasufi, Honey Badger director Neil Krug creates a desert wasteland in Downtown Los Angeles.

The video for “The Blame”, a soothing yet melancholy track, features Gonjasufi wandering in solitude amidst a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles. In conceptualizing the video, Krug recognized the song’s dark undertones and chose to enhance it with desolate imagery to bring it to life.

Having always had a fascination with the 1970s films The Omega Man and Soylent Green, Krug went back to these films for reference to prior to filming and selected quintessential Los Angeles locations that would be easily recognizable. A major challenge in the production of the video was creating the illusion of a deserted city within a congested urban metropolis.

Unknown Pleasures – Typeface

Posted February 22, 2012


This is not officially called the Unknown Pleasures typeface, but it should be.

This monotype typeface created by Synoptic Office, where the height of the letterforms is determined by how often a letter is used. As described on Synoptic’s website, “this typeface maps the rhythmic ebb and flow of English.”
