Film the Blanks, by designer John Taylor, is a series based on famous film posters, with the information deconstructed to a minimal blocks of colors. Can you guess the films above?
I’ve been following Hunter Hampton on Vimeo for quite a while and he’s got really great work. Thought this was fitting for a mid-summer afternoon post. Shot on super 16mm, kick back, fullscreen and enjoy.
Posting images of this piece sort of gives it away, so you’ve got to just hit play above and check it out. Excellent concept, cinematography, and edit. Check out more work from Russell Houghten and have a look at the prints he’s created from still frames on the Epic. Really well done.
Anyone in the visual creative field knows the OFFF titles are the pinnacle of pieces to work on. This year I feel like it was brought to a whole new level. The duo of Ash Thorp and Anthony Scott Burns brings us another incredible short film. Their last collaboration was on Manifold, directed by Burns, which was one of my favorite pieces last year. The visuals in this piece are arresting to say the least, from the aerials, to the dark visitor to the german shepherd and the haunting suspense. Excellent work from the entire crew involved in this piece.
I’d like to write more, talk about how well shot this, post even more stills from the film, but I’d rather not spoil the journey for you. I really hope these two continue projects like this, this is pure inspiration. Now, let’s dim the lights, enter fullscreen and get headphones deep.

Yesterday I came across the reel of Jason Drew and was floored by these visuals. Still images really don’t do it justice but check out the work that Jason, Andrew Jones and crew at Future Deluxe did for Nervo. Would love to see these in person, colors and animation are hypnotic.
Wes Anderson’s love for symmetry, compiled in the above clip.
A very impressive Panoramic audio visual installation title, The Void by Tundra.
Audiovisual installation “Void” is an attempt to visualize the idea of emptiness.
Emptiness here is regarded not as an absence of everything, but as an initial state when anything can appear. To see how dark room turns into the Big Bang epicenter a visitor should become “empty”. Every move and sound, captured by sensitive equipment, stops the 360 degrees audiovisual flow around.
“Void” is a social experiment, to see how long today people can stay totally calm.
My hat is off to this crew for the design and implementation. I’d love to see this in person. It does appear that the young man in the third photo is having a meltdown, poor guy.
Experiments in Speed is a short film about custom bike frame builder Tom Donhou and his attempt at trying to go 100mph on a bike that he built.
