TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB - I CAN TALK - Directed by MEGAFORCE
this is a music video is, overall, nothing groundbreaking, no interesting story, and gets a bit tedious halfway through. but i cant help but be impressed by some of the craaararazy transitions that take place within the first 30 seconds of the film. i have always been a fan of visual tricks that can be pulled off in camera without any digital effects, and i think these are some of the coolest ive seen in awhile. i hope that final cut pro comes out with a preset exactly like these transitions one day. hah.
The Office of Eden - Directed by Terri Timely
i have been a big fan of terri timely studios ever since coming across synethesia over the summer. i think their videos are almost perfect marriage between high production commercial values and daring, subversive idiosyncrasy that you ususally dont see in higher end productions. all of their films and commercials have the look and sound of any professional commercial, only there is always a subtle undertone of wtf. this commercial is for an underwear clothing company (i guessing). and its just awesome. it looks beautiful and its kind of absurd. and its trying to sell you something. enjoy.
el empleo - by santiago Bou grasso
this animation has such a deliberate pacing, that most will probably feel is too slow, but i think the downplayed ending makes the pacing worth it, and even in some ways justifies it. its every action is so understated, leaving ridiculous images to speak for themselves between the long gaps in action. an extremely vivid and completely understood world, considering how little the animation is actually doing.
Git Gob - by Philip Enddolis
i think this animation was one of the more inspired things ive seen this week. hahaha. the characters are completely endearing and stupid. some how the animation is able to make you feel excited about one of the dumbest endings ever. whatever, i loved it.
