The Making of GaGa's Workshop Barney's New York (Before and After and more) by Stellarhead
also check out the wacky website, which makes pretty good use of html5.
there is also an additional interactive project to this, “Constellation Gaga,” which … “enables visitors to Barney’s to Tweet their Holiday wishes to Gaga’s Constellation, where they will be streamed live on the http://www.prysm.comlaser phosphor display (LPD) and hosted on a website.”
more on that from the official release… ”Working with Q4, a NYC-based experiential digital agency, the window will feature a new collaborative film by director Tim Richardson and creative director, Nicola Formichetti. The interactive short film is sponsored by a White Label Product with post production by The Mill, screen technology by Prysm, and interactive experience design by Moving Image & Content and The Science Project. “
this is gorgeous. though “Three Elements” by Nam June Paik still stands as my favorite laser work to date (of course I saw that in person so perhaps there is some bias there), but this is definitely second, and the interactivity makes it that much more interesing. would love to see it in person at some point.
Lovely short about sword maker Korehira Watanabe. I have quite amount of gratitude for this short, as I have been a consummate a fan of the remaining swordsmiths in Japan. I have a small but thorough library here at home with many of these works, and it’s likely each will out last all of us by hundreds of years.
file this one under “where are they now”. pretty interesting to see Charanjit all these years after is seminal release, and now re-release. Perhaps his wife will let him out to play in america someday…

The New MINI Coupé Presents: "Hitchhiker" (Director's Cut)
This has been around for a few months, but I like it so much I finally posted it. One of the reasons I like it is that, well it reminds of my great trip to Iceland, but also because it reminds me of the great little Icelandic / Japanese film Cold Fever, which has a similar scene. And also it has a somewhat Kaurismäki / Jarmusch feel to it as well of which I am big fans.
There are a few more in this series for the coupe that you can check out here, and they are all quite good.

This is a wonderful short about 75 year old diver Ray Ives, who still takes to the water in a 1900s diving suit, and has a crzy collection of found objects. Really moving.
A rogue with an eye for salvage - and the ladies - Ray: A Life Underwater is an affectionate portrait of one man’s deep sea diving career, told through his extraordinary collection of marine artefacts.
Like a modern-day pirate, 75-year-old Ray Ives has been scouring the seabed for treasure his whole life.The former commercial diver has plundered the deep for over fifty years, bringing to the surface anything that glittered — even gold. In a shipping container near the water, Ray tends his museum of cannon, bottles, bells, swords, portholes and diving gear. Ray can be found most days at his museum at Yacht Haven Quay, Plymouth.Produced and Directed by Amanda Bluglassamandabluglass.co.uk Editor and Director of Photography: Danny Cookedannycooke.co.uk Dive photography: Neil Hope divingimages.co.uk Soundtrack: Tony Higgins tonyhiggins.org

"The lost Thing" a short by Shaun Tans and Andrew Ruhmann. In this video about the sound design, Supervising Sound Editor and Sound Designer John Kassab discusses his extensive work on this animated masterpiece bringing to life the world of the Lost Thing.
The story of “The Lost Thing” is about a boy who discovers a bizarre looking creature while out collecting bottle tops at the beach. Having guessed it is lost, he tries to find out who owns it or where it belongs, but is met with mute indifference from everyone else, who barely notice its presence, each unwilling to entertain this uninvited interruption to their day to day lives. For reasons he does not explain, the boy empathizes with the creature, and sets out to find a ‘place’ for it.
Directors Shaun Tan and Andrew Ruhemann were also winners for Best Animated Short Film for “The Lost Thing” at the 83rd Academy Awards in 2011.

The basic idea was to tell a simple story about the emptiness of human mind and the slavery of our own system which makes us artificial, though sometimes by sacrificing ourselves for simple and ordinary things we can make them magnificent.

seeing this on live TV back in 1989 literally blew my mind. i had already began experimenting a lot with samplers and 2 & 7sec delays and all, but this was all a bit more tangible. i already had a pretty good collection of exotica and other vinyl oddities from scouring goodwills and value villages so this was sort of a step backwards to get forwards for me. changed my life it did.
