Dads are great, but how well do you know yours? That’s the question we posed to some of our team members to honor Father’s Day that is coming up this weekend. We think the resulting video turned out pretty darn cute.
We’re obsessed with this video by Grey London. It was originally created as an audio visual installation in conjunction with Schwartz Flavour Shots, a range of herb and spice blends locked in oil. The video features dozens of bags of spices exploding in harmony to a soundtrack. Doesn’t sound like much to you? Watch the video.
The video is expertly shot, visually mind-blowing, and oddly satisfying to watch on repeat. We can’t seem to get enough of the colors, the soundtrack, and the beautiful close up shots showing the different spices mingling. This is a very cool idea … Read more
We love this video by Filippo Rivetti and Tatiana Poliektova, which was an experiment that blends traditional animation and timelapse photography. Their goal? To tell a story and be featured at Tropfest Australia 2014 — the world’s largest short film festival.

We’re so fascinated by the vast, always changing night-time sky. To capture all of its beauty is an impossible feat, but one this video comes pretty close to doing. To say this video is incredible would be an understatement — it is unquestionably mesmerizing. Unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.
Shot by Michigan-based photographer, Vincent Brady, the video is titled “Planetary Panoramas“. Brady used a unique technique by shooting thousands of 360 degree panoramas in the daytime, as well as long exposure videos of the stars at night. He stitched the footage together in this video, creating … Read more
