David McLeod popped up in my Instagram search and I immediately started following him. Technical skills plus a refined beautiful aesthetic makes him a creative delight.





FILM: Sexy

July 14, 2011

Thanks to Forgotten Hopes for this fantastic video by Kim Holm. Effective simplicity with intricate skills in graphics and dead-on editing. Making it so darn sexy.

My lovely man brought home The Arrival, a Shaun Tan book. I gobbled it up slowly. I was dying to jump ahead flipping beautiful page after beautiful page but instead I forced myself to acutely look at every detail and nuance created by Tan.

Checking out what he’s up to these days I then discovered that Passion Pictures Australia had brought one of his books to life. I haven’t watched it yet but look forward to doing so. Check out the animation’s charming website for The Lost Thing.

A group of diverse creatives came together for Amon Tobin to design and construct an impressively scaled set and projection system that looks spectacular on film. It is exciting and encouraging to see someone strive to create a visual show that represents, compliments and enhances an electronic music performance.

I have to post Korb again as I find myself watching their videos several times. This one, for example, has a physical effect on me. I feel that I’m twisting, contorting and floating with the image. Associating it with something I might have seen some time and yet knowing that I have not seen anything like it with my own eyes. It’s human, it’s alien, it’s familiar and strange. The execution as always, is so professional and acutely precise. Every aspect is crafted with care and attention. I really appreciate that. Hurray for excellence.
