Melting Ice Sculptures

Pin It

Melting ice never looked so interesting. Created by LAMAR + NIK for the “Reds” song by the Houses, this music video was made in a car garage for a little over $200 dollars – all without resorting to the use of CGI. The Ice sculptures were made using clay molds, and soldering irons were used to detail them. 

Visit their Flickr gallery to see some great images taken during the production process.

I just loved watching this. Bachna Ae Haseeno (loosely translated as “Save yourself, pretty girls”) is a short film/music video, with some rather kitschy, but enjoyable Bollywood style song and dance.

The film was made by the good folks at BollyBrook, who spent four days shooting the video in the streets of Mumbai, India.

Based on the visuals of the iconic, 1972 map of the NYC subway designed by Massimo Vignelli, Alexander Chen’s Conductor turns the NYC subway system into an interactive string instrument. The application was built using HTML5/Javascript, and pulls in data about the scheduled stops and departure times from the MTA’s public API.

Using the MTA’s actual subway schedule, the piece begins in realtime by spawning trains which departed in the last minute, then continues accelerating through a 24 hour loop.

It’s hard to believe, but its been close to 20 years since “Creep” was unleashed on an unsuspecting world. The song still speaks to me in ways that the others never could.

This literal version, stop-motion animated video for the song, was created by fastidiously putting together 1,544 photographs, shot with a Nikon D60 camera.

Rumspringa is a Los Angeles based rock band, with an exciting and distinct sound. Their first full length debut LP Sway, for Cantora Records, has been described as a "distinct brand of innovative yet relevant funky psychedelic bluesy rock n roll that’s as fresh as it is vintage, and dangerous as it pure."

On an interesting note, the digital-collage cover art of the album was designed by Joey Stevens, the band’s lead vocalist and frontman.

Their bizarre, yet brilliant animated music video for the track ‘Triptych’, was created by artist and animator Winona Reagan. She was given complete artistic freedom by the band, and the results are for all to see.
