To put the random things that I make…

and the amazingly random things I find online. Some you may have seen. Hopefully not all them.

This video has been blowing up over the Internet today. I finally got to watch it and it’s pretty incredible. I don’t think the techniques are new but they are really well done. It’s by Patrick Jean of One More Production. Their site has a ton of other really cool videos to check out as well.

Pixel Invasion

This is the kind of stuff I want to do with my life.

15 Mics

This is the latest music video I finished.

The song is 15 Mics and the artist is my friend Vinny aka Verbal Phantom.

So far it’s garnered very positive reviews, which I’m pretty happy about considering it’s the first project I’ve finished since teaching myself Adobe After Effects. All the editing and animation was done by me with the illustrations being done by Kali.

I plan on doing more and more stuff with After Effects in the near future but I think this is a decent start.

Would love any feedback.

Coming early next month, these will be my next purchase and will be beautifully destroyed by the time the Sun dips below the hemisphere for the winter.

POV

Keeping with the trend of awesome music videos, I ran into this dope video on YouTube. I don’t know anything about the band at all but the song is pretty chill. The real treat is the video. A crazy day in the life shot in 1st person done 3 different ways. It’s definitely worth sticking around to the end.

It’s the video for Luv Deluxe by Cinnamon Chasers.

Also, the girl in the video looks A LOT like Aubrey Plaza.

It instantly reminded me of The Prodigy video for Smack My Bitch Up. An incredible video that was banned from MTV, and not because of the lyrics. The ending for this is a trip.

If you haven’t seen it, check it out and the comparisons to the Cinnamon Chasers video will be obvious.

No videos here for a while.

Coldest Winter Ever

With a brand new snowstorm brewing in the Northeast. It’s pretty appropriate that Nabil Elderkin would drop his newest collaboration with Kanye West; here is the video for Coldest Winter Ever.

For a video that where the artist doesn’t appear once, it captures the mood of the song amazingly well. Although the visuals are enticing and impeccably done, I can’t help but think I’ve seen this scene before. Namely, the third Harry Potter and all the Lord of the Rings films.

Nabil is definitely breaking away from the pack in terms of artistic music video directors, but I don’t think he can say that this is his best work. I haven’t seen everything he’s done but I know that his Welcome to Heartbreak video is definitely the best thing he’s done with just Kanye alone. If you haven’t watched that, you need to.

Like 3 times.

In a row.

Your monitor is fine. It’s called screen-tearing.

Giving Up The Gun

Filed under: music, Video — Tags: , , , , , , — Owen @ 9:59 pm

This is my favorite song of Vampire Weekend‘s new album, Contra. I posted the song a bit earlier. The new video features some pretty awesome guest spots from Jake Gyllenhall, Joe Jonas, RZA and Lil Jon.

Yeah, you thought I was kidding.
