Looking for a way to while away the last few hours of the working week? Well, look no more, for here is a round-up of some of the wonderful work we’ve seen at CR Towers recently, for your delectation. First up is a most excellent music video that I viewed at last night’s brilliant promos event Bug. Shot by Casey Raymond and Ewan Jones Morris, the vid sees US singer John Grant starring as an unemployed superhero, aimlessly wandering the streets of Cardiff. The track is Chicken Bones.

 

Next up is Daniel Wolfe‘s latest narrative vid for Plan B, this time for new track The Recluse.

 

Bison has directed this video for Jon Hopkins track Vessel (Four Tet Remix), which is inspired by an old 3D technique called ‘anaglyph’.

 

Directors Roel Wouters and Jonathan Puckey have followed their recent interactive music video One Frame of Fame with an interactive short film project, Now Take a Bow. Via the use of a webcam, everyone is invited to play a part in the never-ending short. The project is explained in the film above, but visit nowtakeabow.com to join in.

 

Three ads for your now, the first being a new spot for drinks brand Spring Valley from ad agency George Patterson Y&R Melbourne, directed by Psyop. The soundtrack to the spot is the Elvis Presley song Spring Fever, and the spot marks the first time that an Elvis song has been licensed for commercial use in Australia.

 

Noah Harris has directed a series of ads (one shown above) to promote Brother Printers. The agency for the spots is Grey. A making-of film, shown here, explains how it was all done.

 

We end with this spot for Ikea, starring lots and lots of cats. It’s been doing the rounds this week, but if you’ve not seen it yet, take a look as it’s quite a new direction for the furniture brand and is the first work since Mother won the business. The director is Adam Berg.
