There are just so many wrong things happening in this video for Chappo’s single ‘Hell No’ that it’s hard to know where to begin. They are all super fun to watch but you can probably take a wild guess as to the potential discomfort level just by looking at the thumbnail for the video. It’s potentially NSFW depending on your comfort level with singing boobs.

I am a big fan of Beach House and thought their last album was fan-friggin-tastic. This brilliant recent video directed by Sean Pecknold makes me even more excited about what’s yet to come.

SpineTV has assembled a series devoted to what may be the world’s most quirky metropolis, Tokyo. I have never been but this series has me itching to travel there as soon as humanly possible. It must truly be an amazing place. In order to view the entire series you can dig into Spine’s Vimeo account here.

Here is the description of episode 6 of the series that you can watch above:
“In episode 6 of our Tokyo City Series we visit Kokoro HQ, part of the Sanrio Group responsible for one of the most famous Japanese exports, Hello Kitty. Since their inception on 1984 Kokoro have created various ‘ofrobots’ including people friendly vending machines, massive animatronic dinosaurs and life-like ‘humanoid’ robots, developed in ‘continous observation of humans’. We meet Takeshi Mita who shows us the female actroids (actor/android) they are currently developing and tells us of his hopes for an actroid and human integrated future.”

Vinicius Costa sent a humble little, ‘hey check out my latest work’ type of email and I have to say very humbly that I am floored. Wow. Absolutely gorgeous work is spilling over his amazing portfolio. What a talent.

This is very well shot.

“‘When what you see is not what you get’
The 2D version of the 3D short film by Alexei Popogrebsky.
We used the opportunity to test some concepts in 3D and see how it would translate to 2D, and vice versa. Originally part of the Experiment 5ive omnibus – 5gum.ru . (Hence the black envelope with the picture inside, which had to be the common element of all 5 films)
Watch the 3D Anaglyph version here vimeo.com/​28852133 (you would need those cardboard red-cyan glasses for that)

Featuring Grigory Dobrygin and Ina-Maria Jaich
Photography by Peter Steuger; Production design by Erwin Prib; Art Direction and SFX by Niels Müller; Costume Design by Petra Wellenstein; Music by Dmitry Katkhanov; Stereography by Sarah Rotter; Shot on Arri Alexas and Stereotec 3D rig; Postproduction by Pictorion das werk; Produced by METRAFILMS

‘Bonne Annee’ written and performed by Marie-Aude Robin and Dmitry Katkhanov”
