Take Risks, Break Rules, & Kick Ass

on October 8, 2013 by Bridget Comments

We focus a lot on the final creative or final execution.  I thought it would be interesting to go backstage and share a talk that San-Fransicso based artist and freelance creative Ivan Cash gave at 72U (the in-agency university at 72 & Sunny). It’s a 30 minute talk but it’s worth a look if you have time.

on February 19, 2012 by Martina Comments

I’m sure you will love Inception Park, a short video directed by Fernando Livschitz, which mixes pure genius, an apparent complete nonsense and wonderful photography. In a tribute to Christopher Nolan, Fernando of Black Sheep Films transformed Buenos Aires in an amusement park, with roller coasters flying above the streets and gigantic rolling cups coming in & out buildings.

Ride the bike. Play the LP

on October 25, 2011 by Martina Comments

This Feats Per Minute project made in Holland is pure geek genius. A trio of Dutch designers reconstructed a bike to include a record player in it back wheel.

God Save The Album Cover

on October 24, 2011 by Martina Comments

Damn, it’s Monday again. Let’s begin the week as usual with a beautiful video. The old Bob Dylan’s trick gets replayed nicely by Cãoceito + Burdman with a group of Portuguese artists. It’s a visual story told with over 200 illustrated album covers. “At a time where digital audio files dominate but where traditional mediums still seduce fans, the album covers, being useless for some, stay relevant for others“.

A short movie to inspire your upcoming week

on August 21, 2011 by Martina Comments

In the Fall is a short, hand drawn animation that shows a man accidentally falling off a tall building. As the man falls his entire life quickly flashes before his eyes. Steve Cutts’ super idea and execution is amusing and insightful. It’s a beautiful melancholic short film, a great reminder we should never lose perspective and get trapped into work. Read more…

on July 13, 2011 by Martina Comments

Maybe I’m a bit emotional because tomorrow I fly back to Italy after five months, but I love this short movie by JW Griffiths. A journey from Paris and New York to London narrated through a split-screen point of view.
