The Videos of Keith Schofield

November 27, 2009

I have already posted one of Keith Schofield‘s videos here already – the wonderfully 80’s Justice/Lenny Kravitz “Let Love Rule”. Now his video for Charlotte Gainsbourg (featuring Beck)’s “Heaven Can Wait” is blowing up all over the internet, and deservedly so – it’s a beautifully surreal piece of visual art. While looking for more information about him I found another video of his I thought worthy of mention – one he did for Diesel where he has taken old porn footage and attempted to make it safe for work! It has to be seen to be believed, is incredibly funny and probably NOT SFW!

The Avett Brothers vs. Jody Hill

November 27, 2009

This is the very cool music video for The Avett Brothers “Slight Figure Of Speech” directed by Jody Hill – a director whose work I love. He is behind the movies “Foot Fist Way” and “Observe & Report“, and the legendary “Eastbound and Down” TV show. For this project, he started a viral marketing campaign on YouTube, creating a channel called “The American Budget” Shopping Network. Check the rest of these videos here.

Picasso’s Guernica

November 27, 2009

This is a pretty impressive exploration of Picasso’s Guernica in 3D. It would’ve been quite a task to give dimensional depth to some of these abstract forms. I’m not sure who exactly is behind it, but click though to the YouTube page for the source of the video. First seen at Popwhore. Video after the jump, along with the original artwork.
