I really like this video! Beautiful fetish…
Ok, there we go, another post about Scorsese’s ‘Hugo’!
The DoP attached a GoPro camera on top of the actual camera during a 2mins long steadicam shot, giving us insight into the complexity and beauty of a highly choreographed one-shot. Absolutely amazing in my opinion, especially the sliding set wall is prettey cool. But please, see for yourself.
Méliès experienced some kind of hype recently. Firstly, his film Le Voyage dans la lune has been restored with its original, handpainted colouring, and was subsequently freshly scored by French electronic duo Air. Secondly, he was the center of the plot and one of the main characters in Martin Scorsese’s slightly cheesy but nonetheless beautiful film Hugo.
Reason enough to post one of his films here, which on this occasion was laid to a song by Tommy Lee Soul, which seems like a contradiction and a no-go, but surprisingly it works really well and shows how Méliès films are still modern today.
My colleague and buddy Michael Humphrey directed this video for the New Zealand band Midnight Youth. They are playing all around the world at the moment and we’ve had the chance for a quick pint yesterday, which reminded me of this video. It has great locations around the globe with some particularly nice shots of Hong Kong. Hope you enjoy!
Currently spending some time in Korea, I thought it would be good to publish something local. Luckily, I found this beautiful video portrait of Kyung-suk Lee via Artnau, which gives a good insight into creating and directing comic characters. I love the part about his characters skating instead of running, very cool.
The music track Black Stone from Clark’s new album Iradelphic is an incredibly atmospheric, melancholic and very minimal piano piece. On its own, it already possesses the power to carry you away to another world.
The video made by The Vikings is not a typical music video. It’s more like a short film, with an extended intro section which creates this dark, otherworldly atmosphere.
Combined, we have a little gem here.
Krzysztof Kieslowski has always been one of my favourite filmmakers with one of his first narrative features (after a row of documentaries he made before) still ranging among my favourite films ever: Camera Buff. Please, if you do get a chance, watch it.
Here, I’d like to introduce you to another early film of his, the absolutely wonderful and inspiring Talking Heads. It’s incredibly simple but nonetheless so powerful.
Working closely with artist Soojin Kang and photographer Ania Wawrczkowicz, Future Lights Productions had the pleasure earlier this year to produce an ident for a new company called This Is Wedding Video. Balloons offered themselves as a festive and somehow wedding related option and that’s what we went for.
This is the final outcome:
And here are some pictures of the shoot:
