Albert Hammond Jr. - GfC

I love Albert Hammond Jr. and the video is pretty cool. It shows instruments and people floating arund and multiple guitars and drums and that kind of thing. Directed by Laurent Briet. The video is cool, but the song is really great.


Tre Hardson - AyYoMyMan featuring Fatlip

Nice motion graphics. Good beats.

Devendra Banhart - Carmensita

Folk Singer Devendra Banharts new video for Carmensita is like a strange Bollywood film. It stars his current girlfriend Natalie Portman as an Indian princess. There are some crazy effects with detatched heads and glowing snake eyes. The evil Lord Rajah the Malevolent totally looks like Ron Jeremy. Oh, it's a very interesting video. Directed by Skinny.


She and Him - Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?

She and Him is actress Zoey Deschanel and Indie rocker M. Ward. This is a playful video that combines live action and animation. The ghosts are really cool. Directed by Ace Norton.


Gnarls Barkley - Who's Gonna Save My Soul

A little gory, but just wait until about 2:20 into the video. Gnarls Barkley hasn't made a boring video yet. Nice tracking and 3D. Directed by Chris Milk.

Radiohead - House of Cards

The new video for Radiohead's House of Cards was directed by James Frost. " cameras or lights were used. Instead, 3D plotting technologies collected information about the shapes and relative distances of objects. The video was created entirely with visualizations of that data." They used two 3D scanners, one for the close ups and one for the scenic shots. Instead of me explaining this and getting it all wrong, Read more here at and watch the 'making of the video' below.

Santogold, Julian Casablancas & N.E.R.D. - My Drive Thru (Produced By Pharrell Williams)

Oh, yeah. Lots of stop motion cut outs of the artists moving and spinning in 3D space and a killer tune. The project was directed by Psyop. The track was commissioned by Converse to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Chuck Taylors. I just love Santogold, but Julian Casablancas, singer for the band The Strokes is a surprise to see here. 100 years. Can that be correct?

Lyrics Born - I Like It, I Love It

Rappers shrunk to the size of toys, with naked Barbie backup dancers. Loads of fun effects.


The Man Who Planted Trees (1987)

Beautiful and moving Oscar winning animated short film from director Frédéric Back and narrated by Christopher Plummer. Back also hand-drew all of it. It's 30 minutes long and worth watching every minute (although seeing it in a larger format would be nice).

French author Jean Giono's allegory of one shepherd's single-handed effort to re-forest a desert valley in the Alps. The story was published in 1953.
(French Title: L'homme qui plantait des arbres)

Thanks, Carpex, for the link.


Pop Levi - Semi Babe

This is a cool idea for a video. Watch the video with both vocals and backing by playing two videos at once. Put the screens side by side, cue them up and play to hear it all together. Clever.

Amazing organic visuals by Sehsucht. The camera motion matching the first person perspective and truck movement is executed well.
