The National @ Brixton Academy

Most unrock n roll venue ever. The usher in the photos tried to stop a thousand or so people standing. I know he's doing his job but still...

The National started off so so, ended victorious with a beautiful acoustic number at the end. That was magical and easily the highlight.

How to advertise a pub

Simple really

Stephen King films for new book: Full Dark No Stars

Really enjoying this campaign - I might even read the book. Hey whaddya know? Advertising - it can work.

The ones I liked:

Man with nothing to lose meets mysterious stranger. Nothing new to this story except a good edit and great casting.

This one tells the story just enough for you to want to know more. Plus great music and again super creepy casting. I love the joint hobby bits.

Your tinyness is our fortune

‘It’s not Social Media, but Personal Media. Every post, link and affiliation is a statement about you: we’re not sharing, but advertising who we are. And we check in and log on to see what’s happening every chance we get – why? Because what this stuff really does is reveal, in the bluntest way possible, just what the world thinks of you. You can sit in the pub quietly waiting for your friends, or you could stare at the abyss in your palm hoping it stares back at you. The fact you don’t know when something might happen is the attraction. I mean, how can you just sit there when so much could be going on? I find the whole thing a curious mix of slot machine mechanics and vanity. Biscuit?’
‘Thanks Mum.’

Richard Mosse Video and photography

General Janvier, North Kivu, Eastern Congo, 2010 by Richard Fosse.

More stunning photography can be found on his website. But he also makes beautiful videos such as Leviathan:

<object width="400" height="225"><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param name="movie" value="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=10624579&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=1&amp;color=&amp;fullscreen=1&amp;autoplay=0&amp;loop=0" />

A film about the recovery of the US Airways jet that crashed into the Hudson and the sinking of old US bombers off Thailand for divers to explore.

Mind how you go with Killcam it has disturbing footage of real people being shot by US Forces. Forces who when injured and recovering in hospital, spend their time playing Iraq-themed first-person shooters:

Finally in Fraternity, Mosse convinces some bros from Yale to scream as hard and as long as they can. Payment? A keg of beer:

<object width="400" height="300"><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param name="movie" value="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=2147805&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=1&amp;color=&amp;fullscreen=1&amp;autoplay=0&amp;loop=0" />

Monopoly film

Very much a sketchbook film: it's roughly shot and the lighting's appalling. But there's an interesting idea in here. Two days after it went up on Vimeo, I got this mail:

"Hey there -- just saw you had some Monopoly-related images/video. I'm a producer at CNN iReport. We just launched an assignment asking for people to share images of their Monopoly fandom for the 75th anniversary and I wondered if you'd like to participate.

Hope you'll check it out. We give people credit for the images we use, and you retain the rights to them.

If you are interested, here's our "assignment" -- look there for more information and to see where to upload your pictures.


Thanks so much for reading, hope you'll want to join us!

Hmm, don't think so, but thanks!

Vampires n Shit

'Take our picture mate, go on.'
'I won't be able to.'
'C'mon take my camera.'
'Okay,  but I'll warn you it won't work.'
'I don't think you can take a photo of a vampire.'
'Prick. Mate, can you take our photo?'
'Hey, I'm just saying.'

Homemade spaceship

Dad and son send camera (I’m guessing a Flip) to the very edge of space and back again. In a takeaway food container. They find it with an iPhone.

This is a mix by a friend of mine. It's amazing and made completely from samples of old VHS film samples lovingly stitched together on his computer. Not bad for a duck.
