What happens when you take a few beautiful young people and shoot them with a Phantom Flex 4K camera with the frame rate cranked up to a couple hundred frames per second? You get the ad below for Barbour clothing. Produced by Gramercy Park Studios, the long form one minute and thirty second spot introduces a new line of clothing featuring Pantone colors. The spot has some really nice slow motion cinematography with the beautiful young people being pelted with handful’s of colored powder. No voice over, no editorial, no call to action, just people turning through the clouds of colored dust and emerging at the end to reveal the new line all set to a catchy pop tune.

In the modern world, you are probably photographed, or on film more now than ever before. Because of this, shouldn’t you look your best? “I am Dandy” from Gestalten, explores the phenomenon of the return of the elegant gentleman. The video below is a series of interviews of the subject of the book, as well as the author, and photographer. Gentlemen, watch this short film, take off your ball cap, and think about taking a little pride in what you have on. They say clothes make the man. You don’t have to look like an Edwardian fop, but you might want to dress it up a bit.
Brilliant motion graphics and design work for Chanel. This is a quick history of Coco Chanel for the Inside Chanel online project. The animated short has no credit roll but Creative Review suspects that illustrator Lorenzo Petrantoni was probably involved and I can see that. This is a video that almost begs for repeat viewing so you can catch anything you might have missed. What great timing and pacing throughout the entire black and white piece.
