Picture Drift: Gotye “Hearts a Mess”


Picture Drift busts out some highly stylized, Tim Burton-esque animation for Gotye’s “Hearts a Mess” music video. The song’s loping beat is echoed nicely in the lanky gait of the video’s characters, and the ambiance of the time-lapsed environment extends Gotye’s spacey, sparse sonic landscapes.

I need to get down to Australia. Maybe my perspective is skewed, but Melbourne and Sydney seem to be crawling with talented studios. I’ve also heard that the Land Down Under is one of the most livable places on earth, with beautiful weather and friendly people to boot.

Thanks for the tip, Brett!

Trollback’s Joe Wright for Infiniti


Director Joe Wright of Tröllback + Co. recently finished “Swell,” a gorgeous water-themed spot for Infiniti. Like the rest of Joe’s work, “Swell” is dead sexy. I’m not a big fan of the strange water-ghosting effect at 00:24, but the rest of the spot flows flawlessly.

Jakob Tröllback, by the way, will be speaking at Inspire 07 on February 16th here in Savannah.

Tomas Garcia

Was clued in on this guy earlier. He is starting a new studio called Sagas, and they have a really interesting reel. Tomas’ personal site is very fun to peruse as well. Check it out. Apparently his dog helps him.
