Michael Jackson vs Mr. Bean

May 30, 2011

A new stop motion short from Montreal-based Pascal Blais Studio. This appears to be some sort of self-promotional piece that just appeared on their Vimeo channel without explanation, however I sense the potential for many more of these. Directed by Patrick Boivin from Woolf + Lapin. (via laughing squid)

My wife says this is “way genius”

It’s choreographed music video day here at Colossal. I spotted this video for Australian singer Holly Throsby’s Here Is My Co-Pilot a few days ago and it really stuck with me. After quick verification from the wife, I learned this video is certified “oh my god awesome” and “OH NO THEY DID NOT”. Directed by Heath Davis.

Motorized wooden marionettes by Juan Pablo Cambariere

January 6, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Seven Basic Exercises is a collection of incredible marionettes by Buenos Aires based artist and designer Juan Pablo Cambariere from a show at Turbo Gallery. It’s astounding how humanistic their physical actions are, considering they’re comprised mostly of plain interlinked blocks. His web site also has a fantastic gallery of additional puppet photos, and don’t miss his typeface. (via the automata / automation blog)

The Temper Trap: Love Lost

December 20, 2010

Christopher Jobson

It’s beyond me how I haven’t seen this before. A fantastic video for Love Lost by The Temper Trap. The video was directed by Dougal Wilson and shot over two extremely frigid days on Walthamstow Marshes just outside London. (via it’s nice that)

Cheers! Beautiful viral advert for SHIRO

December 2, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Oh this is really special. A long-form, somewhat quirky advertisement for SHIRO, a Japanese brand of shōchū. You’ve probably noticed I kind of have a thing for Rube Goldberg-related related stuff and this is no exception despite its digital interventions. (via booooooom)
