SUNDAY MORNING: Check out this darkly hilarious animation by Grant Orchard, in which a man visits an old friend in a sinister town with alarming consequences. I hate to think this may be some sort of commentary on contemporary culture or something.
MUSIC VIDEO: We don’t normally get our panties in a twist over country rock on Liquid TV, but there’s something special about this video from The Zac Brown Band. Actually a few things. One – it’s produced by our friends Titmouse, Inc (the studio behind Metalocalypse, China, IL, and the forthcoming Black Dynamite. And two - it’s directed by Beavis and Butt-Head‘s Mike Judge, and when was the last time you saw a Mike Judge directed music video?
In Titmouse style, the art is awesome and riddled with dozens of extra gags if you care to look close enough. In Mike Judge style, it’s a hilarious, irreverent, epically goofy animation.
BLOG: You could watch Vladimir Mavounia-Kouka‘s Wake Up and feel bad for the main character… but why bother when it’s more fun just to watch and laugh?
BLOG: This gem from Zach Weiner’s Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal is funny because it’s true. I mean probably, right?
BLOG: We’re excited to see LA artist Travis Millard venture further and further into the world of animation. Check out his short Ghosted from 2011, featuring some of his ghostly sculptures.
MUSIC VIDEO: I know when music videos are really great when someone mentions a song from over a year ago and all I can remember is the video. And so it is with I Love Your Face – I almost can’t imagine Kali Briis’s E-pop (that’s Estonian) track existing without this strange and adorable video by Chintis Lundgren.
BLOG: Tarsem Signh’s Mirror Mirror had a fantastic opening sequence. Here it is, directed by Ben Hibon.
