WHATEVEREST

Beautiful documentary by Kristoffer Borgli about the ordinary life of an extraordinary person. All hail Inspector Norse. Very touching.

Eyjafjallajökull

Limitless possibilities with projection mapping seem possible when things like this already exist.
More from Joanie and other artists of the ANTIVJ visual label site.

CANADA x 55DSL

This is exactly how I think a fashion film should be. Cut the abstract crap and start telling stories.

CLOUD ATLAS

An exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.

I had never heard about the German independent movie Cloud Atlas. This actually looks amazing.
And to know that Tom Tykwer is co-directing with the Wachowskis is so exciting. His use and staging of temporality and butterfly effect in Run Lola Run is just perfect. The more I read about the movie the more I want to watch it.

KENZO x MACIEK POZOGA x DIS

imageimageimageimage

The new creative directors of KENZO Humberto Leon and Carol Lim have been doing quite a nice job with the brand image. First The shoot for the New Era caps collection by photographer Maciek Pozoga and then with their hilarious and curiously delightful F/W 2012 Menswear fashion video “Watermark” shot by DIS Magazine. A fresh view on a saturated world or just overhyped branding?

STEVEN MEISEL x PRADA

Steven Meisel just did it again. For a retro inspired S/S 2012 collection he blends the outfits perfectly with the mood and vintage feel of a 1950’s imaginary gas station. But apart from the set and cars you can just tell it is the 21st century fashion photography master behind the camera.
Simple and complex, overdone and innovative, efficient and beautiful, as always.

The HBO series True Blood is very famous for it’s superbly made lo-fi and haunted opening credits.
Well here is a great video to get to know more about it and about the guys who created it. Usually behind the scenes/making of films are not always great, but I think this one really serves its purpose.
And it goes without saying that the clip during the last minutes featuring RTX’s Western Xterminator is a piece of art on its own.

KEVIN CALERO x NOAM CARVER

Beautiful video for Noam Carver jewllery design. Directed by the very talented Kevin Calero.
The spirit of the collection is in my opinion beautifully transcribed with the images and sounds. Great work.

ROBERT HAMADA

AMASIA

“Amasia- Possible Future Supercontinent After Actual Earth” demonstrates that if nature is systematic, then there is a calm before the torrents and an unleashing of perfectly normal change. The moving imagery of terrain is pure. Its realness fools an untrained eye as visual effects may trick the sharpest one. The jewelry industry is a well-mapped frontier in search of discovery.The scenes in this film welcome a new generation of raw talent and poise to an unexpected universe.

What can I say. I’ve watched this short several times, and each one has brought me different and new views on the beauty of it. The sound and colours are so incredible, it is difficult to explain.
What I would really like to emphasize here is the brilliant fact that you can promote an object, a collection or even a brand by just adding very little of it into a film. It is not going to prejudice the product itself, on the contrary, I think it just makes you appreciate and remember even better the association, but that maybe is just my opinion.
Director Robert Hamada here affiliated his images with Jules Kim’s design for Bijules Jewelery. Enjoy.

KRISTOFFER BORGLI x TGF

I have often been disappointed by The Golden Filter's music, even if a lot of their remixes are amazing. The repetitive style of the bass lines and Penelope Trappes’ voice is sometimes too much for me. But I must say that their video collaborations have always mesmerized me. And it keeps going on with this short film about a girl with a strange gift. Or burden.
The intriguing story coupled with the beautiful images and - let’s admit it - the excellent soundtrack by the New York band makes this short film a must see.

As Steven Spielberg’s new movie is buzzing all around the internet, here is a delightful unofficial title sequence made by James Curran for the movie, “featuring elements from each of the 24 books”.
