“Beyond Mountains, More Mountains” is a short film they created for Italian street fashion brand 55DSL. Love.

Slim Twig

Posted September 27, 2012



Slim Twig’s “Altered Ego” was shot in Montreal’s newest multidisciplinary art centre, the PHI Centre.

It’s directed by George Fok from Montreal-based PHI Create. The amazing costumes were done by dear friend Renata Morales. Renata also designs for artists such as Arcade Fire, Grimes and Zola Jesus. She also made the really amazing dress I wore on my BD two years ago and the red and white toile jean jacket of mine that you would covet if you ever saw it.

Full credits.

Lynchian Lana

I like a little Lana Del Rey David Lynch mash-up.

I caught the 30-second version of this spot for H&M, with product prices, on TV last night. I’m happy to see that they did a full length version, without the product info.

I’m not ashamed to admit that I like Lana Del Rey and I love this spot, heavily inspired by David Lynch. It’s directed by Johan Renck. There’s also a behind-the-scenes vid.

Hand Lettering

Posted September 20, 2012

I’m not a big Bob Dylan fan, but I do love hand lettering and these are great.

The 66 cards that make up this piece were created over a month by NYC-based Leandro Senna (in his spare time he says). There are some intentional misspellings and puns in the song’s original video, so Senna kept his true to that.

Scooped from Fubiz.
