MmmHmm, the new Flying Lotus music video ft. Thundercat


MmmHmm is a fun visual journey through a mixture of beautifully animated and live action worlds, directed by Special Problems and produced by Warp Films.

The concept driving this piece hits you on the head fairly early, but you can’t help but want to join him on the visual ride he is experiencing, starting with an 8-bit game like world, and getting progressively more organic as he progresses. The animation styles are intricate, intriguing and flat out awesome which leave me wanting more at the end. A seemingly appropriate feeling considering the theme of the video.

I AM by Tronic

IAM_04
Tronic just finished up this beautiful personal spot, I AM, which aims to bring the voice of the animals back on to the human radar. As Tronic co-founder Vivian Rosenthal says in the attached interview, “they are becoming almost like walking ghosts that are just drifting through a manufactured landscape”.

The simplicity and technical slickness allow for the message to take the front seat, while still providing us with something beautiful and eye-catching to look at.

Sebeastien Agneessens recently sat down with Vivian Rosenthal and talked with a her about the conceptual side of the piece, which you can read here.

Friday Night Lights promo for Direct TV by Iron Claw

ic_fnl
DirecTV’s Design Space partnered with VFX company Iron Claw (Sean Koriakin and Greg Talmage), director Ben Mor from RSA Films and DP Dariusz Wolski (Pirates of the Carribean, Alice in Wonderland) to create this foreboding promo for DirecTV’s exclusive broadcast of Friday Night Lights.

Everything was shot on green screen, with the only practical elements in the entire piece being the actors, house facade and pickup truck. The simplicity of the concept allows for the subtle details and beautiful lighting to take center stage and really pack in the emotion and anticipation.
