It’s that time of year again, folks! Where we look back on the videos that have entered our minds and our hearts in the last year. So without further ado…
A dynamic and westernized short that’s full of kickass robots and intense lighting and camera work. Vividly sharp, and dark.
Favourite Interactive Advertisment:
That’s two for two, OB! Last year we shone the spotlight on their Apology video, but now they are back with the Endless Celebration series! Type your name in and get crackin’ on some endless awkward laughter.
Favourite Animated Campaign:
These world-tilting animations are short and beautiful, a lovely series that just makes you wanna put together a surrealist train set or something.
Favourite Funny Video:
This video just kicks you in the WTF’s and it hurts.. in the best way.
Favourite Music Video:
Everything is constantly splitting, and after watching the making of for this video, we can’t help but appreciate the amount of ingenuity required to make this video work as seamlessly as it turned out.
Favourite Animated Music Video:
This video starts off slow, but gets to be really impressive. These guys used what they call “lyric-lapsing” to create an other-worldly experience through song and visuals. To better understand the hardships of this video, it’s good to note it took 6 months to film and took 6-8 hours to generate about 3-4 seconds of the video. Wow.
Favourite Interactive Series:
After making it’s web debute, this series landed itself a screening at Toronto’s Reel Asian Film Festival earlier this year. A real stand-out work in originality and creativity, this series enables the audience to take part and choose their own adventures with each character.
Favourite Fan Video:
This is more of an homage than a fan video, but a wonderfully animated work that brings a poem by Charles Bukowski to life through a series of watercolours.
An unconventional time-lapse that fuses day and night in one of the best cities in the world. A real work of innovation and something we hope more people will attempt to utilize now that the idea is out there as it leads to really beautiful landscapes. A real creative achievement.
Favourite Video Overall:
One cannot have a year summation list and not include Everynone. Their videos are based in simple ideas and lead to bigger concepts. Awesome.
