Director Sam Peacocke must have a screw loose I reckon but I think that's not a bad thing.
Director Timothy Scaccenti definitely has nightmares. An alien love story with all the trimmings and of course a sports car.
The great outdoors, a girl with a leg brace, a dance routine, a randy puppet dog, I leave the rest to you. Mitch Stratton the director likes the great outdoors.
The vid features Bill Shannon who was born with a degenerative hip condition. His legs cannot carry his own weight and so he has lived a life on crutches. He has developed a new way of moving through life on his skateboard and the crutches. Though this may look like a recreational hobby or a debilitation, it is simply how Bill maneuvers throughout the day. In time to Rjd2's song "Work It Out" we follow Bill as he makes his way around. At the slow start, Bill is descending the courthouse steps in downtown Brooklyn. It's difficult, but he makes it down and the rest you'll just have to watch to understand. Rjd2 plays several extras which you can try to spot as well. The video, directed by Joey Garfield, is one continuous single shot for the length of the song.
Daniel Eskils directs this animated little number with a lot of cardboard.
Jaron Albertin uses head sensitive photography to create this captivating piece of wonder.
Directed by our BUG 03 guests Dom and Nic.
Patrick Daughters turns a normal car trip in to a scare fest, with in camera double projections, disembodied heads, naked women projected onto the band, the devil escaping from the drivers mouth etc etc... I was frightened.
Daisuke Shimada directs this one shot video. Shot using a long track and a camera that shoots very high speed the camera catches moments from a choreographed scene of strangeness.
Cornelius always has cool videos that are a bit of madness and this one takes a while to work out. Not sure I have completely but mirrors and crazy stop frame animation is the gag with some post and lots of time on Koichiro Tsujikawa hands who directed this joy.
