New Suicide Squad trailer

The second Suicide Squad trailer dropped yesterday, and I love it.

Very clever editing throughout, syncing up edits perfectly with SFX and on screen moments to Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. Always refreshing when you see a trailer being put together with some real thought behind behind it. Instead of the classic fade in and outs to black, with a loud drone sound!

Last time I got excited with the editing for a trailer was Wolf of Wall Street.

The Wolf of Wall Street Trailer

Last night me and Lauren went to see Anchorman 2, which we both thought was surpirsingly good. Basically a good film to have in the DVD collection.

Before the film, there was of course a selection of this years film trailers, and Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf Of Wall Street' trailer was shown. I've seen a few posters for this film, and done some research. I am already looking forward to this film, purely because it's directed by Martin Scorsese and I like DiCaprio's latest work. And of course the story sounds great, I love representation of a dont care world for money, I love all the tacky glitz and glamour for it all, and I love the look of the 80s on film.

Anyway....the point is I am looking forward to it, and the trailer made me level of excitement foe it go, sky high. This trailer has been put together so well, I love the editing, I love the visuals they have chosen, and even though it's Kanye West I love the track they have chosen. It works surprisingly well.

I had to watch it again today, seriously it's that good. I never thought I would love a trailer so much.

Here it is, what are your thoughts?

Ridiculous new advert for The Voice 2014

Last night I saw the new advert for The Voice 2014, I don't watch this pointless show. However, a friend from uni posted this on Facebook explaining how disturbing it was. Therefore I had to investigate.

I'm not going to explain the whole ad, you'll just have to watch it yourself, it's only 1 minute and 2 seconds long, and it's clear why the ad is disturbing.

I can think of many ways to recreate the advert, and give out the same message without it looking so strange.

Musical Games Consoles

Here is an interesting video.

Musician, Julian Corrie creates a piece of music with the use of retro games consoles, which sonds very cool. I'm not too convinced that this whole thing is legit, as it comes accross a little too staged.

However it is shot very well, I am hoping a future documentary style video from Fenixx will look a little like his.

What's your thoughts on the video and track?

KOKO Presents, Submotion Orchestra

Due to being extremely busy at work, I haven't found the time to post anything new on here. However, I have some time this morning, here is the latest episode of KOKO Presents!

Slightly different genre of episode this time round, due to the band. However, it doesn't matter, the episode is still great.

Hope you enjoy!

The Innovation of Lonelines

This incredibly stylistic video depicts the horrible ways we are quickly leading to on social networks. The thoughts, and opinions are quite strong, but definitely understandable, and makes you want to instantly rethink how you present yourself online.

And like I said, the style in this video is outstanding, the animation is just amazing, and the sound design.

Enjoy, hope it doesn't scare you too much.

Stop-Motion video made with Google Glass

Check out this Stop-Motion video, made entirely with Google Glass. It's amazing, and so clever and surreal. Love it!

Creative ideas like this with Google Glass is great, but I'm still struggling to see the full use for the product.

Music for the eyes

So I have kicked off a new and casual project for Fenixx. Launching the channel musicfnx to post videos focusing on music.

With this channel comes a playlist of Mixtapes compiled by my good friend Darren Parker. Not sure how popular these will become, but they are good fun so far. The premise behind the idea, is to make these videos popular as a calling card, for people to click through to see our other work :)

Below is the latest one that I published yesterday

Playstation 1

The good people over at Vsauce have put together a visually pleasing animation about the Playstation 1, which of course was a great console. The animation is filled with interesting facts, which may leave you shocked!

Reconstructed One Direction comments

We all know One Direction fans are a strange bunch, and make sure they get angry at anyone who disagrees with their views. This video reconstruction from a genuine YouTube comment war between is simply hilarious, such a genius idea.

Of course the man who has mastered this technique, is Adam Buxton.
