how cute is this westfield stratford ad? it combines a bunch of things i like: fashion, dance, couples (i guess?), and videography.
it chronicles 100 years of east london style from the 1910’s until present times.
when i saw this, it totally reminded me of the evolution of dance video (and i wasn’t alone):
and while we’re on the subject of dance…how amazing is david elsewhere? an oldie but goodie, i can’t help but smile when i watch this:
he’s one of the silhouettes in my favorite ipod ad (break dancing + daft punk? yes, please!):
it’s a shame he never got to perform with michael jackson; they were collaborating for “this is it”…
dancing is one of the (many) things i really wish i was good at. funny how this turned from a fashion post to dance.
have a great labor day weekend! i’ll be spending it churning out 8 essays.
so apparently that cool travel video i posted several days ago was part of a series for sta travel. the one i posted was entitled “move”, and the other 2 are “eat” and “learn”. i must say these are pretty effective viral marketing tools. i know i like to move (travel, not exercise), eat, and learn (well, sorta) anyways.
and here’s “move” again so you can see them all together:
based on my blog posts it should be pretty clear that i love animation, especially pixar. time to show love for aardman. when it comes to stop motion animation, aardman is pretty much thee studio. i’m a big fan of wallace & gromit and shaun the sheep. well, i think shaun is freaking adorable in the wallace & gromit universe but the shaun the sheep series is kinda boring.
anyways, aardman came out with a short entitled “gulp”…not only is it the world’s largest stop motion animation shot, it was all shot on a nokia n8 cell phone.
if you’re amazed by the picture quality, i’m sure it’s due to the 12 megapixel carl zeiss optics camera.
not to mention his videography equipment…
