Behold the latest work from animator Jake Fried (previously) who works with layer after layer of ink, gouache, white-out and coffee to create deeply textured and truly psychedelic animated shorts. Fried lives and works in Boston where he is primarily known for his painting, but has recently begun focusing on these experimental animations he refers to has “moving paintings,” many more of which you can see on his website.

The Best of Humanity Caught on Russian Dash Cams

To help thwart rampant insurance fraud in Russia many cars are now equipped with dash cams to capture what unfolds in front of vehicles in an attempt to aid innocent persons, law enforcement, and insurance firms. This has lead to almost unlimited hours of footage found online of unbelievable accidents, close calls, and some of the worst of human behavior. Luckily somebody took it upon themselves to edit together some of the most amazingly thoughtful actions and tender moments caught with these same dash cams and edited into this short clip. And can I just say what on Earth is up with that kid running around on the highway!? (via kottke)

screengrab

Filmmaker Willie Witte is currently working on a documentary series for PBS but in his spare time he makes fun experimental films. His latest, SCREENGRAB, was made without the help of computer effects though I can’t quite figure out how. After watching this three times the hemispheres of my brain are the equivalent of cross-eyed. Music by Kevin McAlpine. (via booooooom)

Viola through Glass: Alexander Chen Creates an Orchestra of Violas

April 22, 2013

Google Creative Director Alexander Chen (who previously turned NYC transit data into music) recently sat down with his viola and a pair of Google Glass specs to record snippets of video and audio which he then looped and edited to create this miniature orchestra. While the video editing was done externally to Glass, the perspective lends itself nicely to the viola and there’s something sort of life-affirming about the music and snippets of life recorded just beyond the instrument. Beautiful music, well done. (via explore)

In this amazing clip, acro paragliding pilot Gill Schneider teamed up with his father’s circus class to mix juggling, trapeze and other circus arts with paragliding. The whole video is fun to watch as you learn a bit about Sheneider’s love for flying and see some more ground-based interactions between himself and the class, but around 2:30 things suddenly escalate when he takes trapeze artist Roxane Giliand up in the sky above France for some nail-biting acrobatics. You can see more photos of the circus here. Video shot and directed by Shams Prod.
