This is an absolutely beautiful short film that is bounded together by the amazing English language. The beautiful images may seem sporadic and disconnected at first, but then you’re quick to realize how the word ‘light’ or ‘fly’ can be depicted in so many different ways. A quick 3 minute video that will leave you with a smile on your face

Just stumbled across the beautiful work of Paul Octavious. His project “Same Hill, Different Day” is a series of photos and short clips shot at the same hill but on…different days A rather self-explanatory title. The hill is a versatile venue, taking on different roles during each days and seasons – sometimes a movie theatre, sometimes a skiing resort, and other times, the perfect place to fly a kite.

That feeling when you hear a new piece of music and you instantly fall in love:
His music has hints of Philip Glass, but somehow more expressive and human. All his pieces are just hauntingly beautiful and stirring.
Music adds soul to movies and images. It enhances and amplifies the emotion the image evokes. I love this music video for Opus 23 by Italian director Marco Morandi; the animation is so simple and charming.

If you have a few minutes to spare, this interview with Michael Wolff is definitely worth your time. As one of the founders of design firm Wolff Olins, Michael Wolff shares his insight on how he views the world around him and how he keeps his passions alive by his observations.
I love the shots of the ordinary things around us, like the pots, umbrellas, and supermarkets. Most people may take them for granted but Wolff guides his passions with his curiosity and appreciation for everything. This idea is the central theme I had when I created this blog and the last few posts, and it’s great to see an interview that is aligned with my thoughts right now.

My friend Thomas (@tvelvet) tweeted this video today, titled Shinya Kimura by Adam Richards:
I love the simplicity of the whole piece. It’s a short 3 min piece that illustrates a man’s love and passion for motorcycles and how significant it is to him. There are some great shots in this mini documentary and very inspiring overall.
The video also reminds me of another blog that I keep up with called Grain & Gram. Every so often, they feature a gentleman with a unique occupation or craft. I really liked the one about Blair Sligar, a woodworker from Orlando, FL. Besides featuring awesome projects, the interview and videos also gives you a glimpse of someone else’s life that is so different from your own.

Creative agency Dentsu put together a creative and beautiful ad for Canon Pixma called Bringing Colour To Life. Essentially, they shot a series of paint sculptures, created by sound vibrations. Paint drops were placed on top of a membrane, which wrapped around a speaker. When music plays from the speakers, the vibrations cause the paint to jump into the air, creating these amazing shape or ‘sculptures’ for a split second. High speed camera were used to capture these shots.
