Well helloooooo Friday!

Video time!

» Tiga I Bugatti

Tiga I Bugatti
One of the odder music videos I’ve ever seen. The lipsynch is way off but it adds to it.
I like!

Interesting Ball
“A red ball bounces past a cafe and a couple folks’ houses and then goes to the beach.”
This is making the rounds, and it’s very well done.

» The Viola Maker

The Viola Maker
“My debut short film about a talented Viola maker based here in Manchester. Helen Michetschläger has been a maker of fine violins, violas and cellos for over 30 years and I was lucky enough to film Helen create this beautifully decorated instrument over a period of a couple of months.”
Wow! Very impressive work here.


“We searched NYC for a variety of subway musicians to unite for a live experiment. We stationed them at 9 different subway stops with wifi and had them simultaneously connect to composer Ljova. He led them in a performance of “Signal Strength,” an original piece he wrote for them.”
I guess I question how many takes it took to get one synchronized performance, but it’s still pretty cool.

Bonus Video:

» What is Literature for?

What is Literature for?
“A short film made for the School of Life, explaining why on earth we read books and what they could do for us. It was animated by myself [Marcus Armitage] and Ignatz Johnson Higham.”
Well said.

Have a great evening everybody.
