Interesting video style to check out

| June 30, 2010

A friend recently sent me a link to Sean Mullen’s Vimeo page, a video artist that does some amazing work with individual portraits/short stories. As we continue to experiment with telling interesting visual stories of people for the music series, the desk series, edlab vlog etc, it might be cool to keep this style in mind. I really like the film Howard, although the music gets a bit much towards the middle. There seems to be a trend in gorgeous looking film with ephemeral music. While I dig the way the video looks, the music choice seems a bit too stylized for me, and probably something that will age pretty quickly…who knows. Warchild is also a fascinating piece  (and a bit hard to watch); I especially like his creative use of titles. Don’t miss Birthright as well.
