My lastest and 10th music video for Fenixx has officially been released today. This time we have been working with the wonderful, Creatures Of Love.

This time I decided on stepping up the decision with equipment, as we were lucky enough to get approval to hire the Sony FS700, which was a dream to use. The slow motion function on the camera is beautiful, every shot was amazing, making for a tough decision making selects for the edit.

I hope you enjoy this video, and share it amongst your friends, and we apologies if you have chosen to watch this on your lunchbreak.

Mia Maestro 'Blue Eyed Sailor'

I stumbled across this video the other week on Vimeo Staff Picks, and instantly fell in love with the concept. The woman covered head-to-toe in body paint matches and blends with the background so well and works perfectly, there are many points where you actually can't see Mia in the video. 

Can you see her?

The video may seem old now for me to share it, however a colleague at work mentioned this technique therefore I had show him, which of course made me decide to share it on my blog.

If you love body art, and the technique of making someone become invisible with the background imagery, then you will love this video from Mia Maestro. I am sure the technique has a name for it...if you know it let me know.

Watch the full video here. And let me know your thoughts.

MGMT - 'Life Is A Lie'

Just recently I was having a binge of classic music videos from the past, the list was endless. One of the videos was Battles' 'Ice Cream' from the every-so-awesome directing duo, Canana.

I don't remember the time when the video was released (I was probably yet to start listening to Battles). However, since making music videos and discovering this gem I have always loved it. I just love the shear randomness of the video, how many different elements they managed to squeeze into one video.

I have kind of walked off course for this post...but anyway once I first watch the new video from MGMT 'Life Is A Lie' it instantly reminded me of that video from Battles. There are plenty of random elements giving the idea of randomness, a crying rock, talking dolphin, a old man eating a banana. I think it's fantastic!

I really want to (and I will) make a music video like this some day. Which reminds me, my latest music video for Creatures Of Love will be released end of this month...and it's our best yet!
