Video Roundup // 2

It's time for another video roundup! This week we have trippy motion graphics, detailed stitching, and a dirty animation.

Refinery29 shows the making of a Dior dress. Watching them create each stripe and crease with perfection is inspiring. All I can say is that I want to see more videos like this.

The FITC Tokyo 2015 Titles are mind-blowing. Be sure to check the Vimeo credits for a list of who made this happen. Bonus extra: their process video (below).

I love Wong Ping's adorable and gross animations. In this video, Ping reveals what teenage sexuality was like before the internet – with a twist, of course. This is probably NSFW. I can't embed the video, but you can watch it on It's Nice That: http://www.itsnicethat.com/articles/wong-ping-1

Video Roundup

Welcome to a new series, Video Roundup. Every Wednesday I'll be sharing the videos that are catching my eye.

In honor of the Superbowl (yes, I'm behind!) we're starting with a throwback Missy jam. Favorite line: “step to me, get burnt like toast.”

While I was on the throwback train, I had a nice, long laugh at the Chinese Backstreet Boys. Remember them?! One of the first viral videos. My favorite is their roommate in the background, obviously uninterested in the history taking place behind him.

And now for something completely different: Off the Record, a design documentary by Laura Sans of Barcelona. Laura interviews a handful of designers on the deeper contexts and implications that we sometimes ignore in the industry. It definitely made me miss design school a bit. If you didn't go to a Bauhaus-y design school and have long discussions about the greater meaning of design, then you're especially in for a treat.
