Videos of the week

Here’s a selection of our favourite videos that have passed through the office this week, kicking off with Valerie Pirson’s super-sweet promo for Olivia Ruiz’s La Femme Chocolat. Pirson is repped by Partizan and was recommended to the production company by none other than Michel Gondry, after she created a series of animations for his forthcoming feature The Science of Sleep.

Up next is SSSR‘s latest for Subtle, for their track The Mercury Craze.

Inspired by 1950s children’s film The Red Balloon, director Jamie Thraves has turned Damien Rice‘s co-singer and muse Lisa Harrigan into a balloon for the singer’s latest, 9 Crimes. Perhaps unsurprisingly, considering Rice’s melancholic singing style, things do not end well for the couple.

To cheer you back up, here’s Ben Dickinson‘s brilliant video for The Rapture‘s Whoo! alright – yeah… uh huh.

Finally, an impressive one-take video from Dan Lowe for Good Shoes‘ The Photos On My Wall.

Have you seen any other brilliant promos this week? If so, post links to them in the comments box so we can take a peek.

Cannavaro lifts cup for Nike

One of our very first blog posts here on CR Blog showed a selection of posters created by Wieden + Kennedy Amsterdam for Nike Italy.

As we reported in that original blog post, each poster is the starting point for an animated spot and W+K have kindly just showed us the first spot to be completed…

Something for the weekend

If you feel like engaging in a little culture this weekend, take a trip to see Swiss artist Christoph Büchel’s epic, sprawling exhibition at Hauser & Wirth gallery’s East End branch, Coppermill. Situated just off Brick Lane, Büchel has merged the gallery seamlessly with its surroundings, turning the entire space into a down-at-heel hotel/cheap electronics shop, complete with a tacky sign and shop front on the outside of the gallery.
Moving inside, the illusion continues as a staircase leads into the hotel itself, a rabbit warren of rooms that are disturbingly stuffed with beds, including narrow mattresses in the kitchen and bathroom. The attention to detail is obsessive, with drawers, desks and beds littered with personal possessions while half-eaten food and overflowing ashtrays suggest a very quick getaway by any inhabitants.

Image makers get involved

Most of clubland’s promotional material is hardly the stuff of exhibitions. However, one monthly night called Get Involved has been making an effort to swim against the tide…

We are Family
