with the holiday season here, there hasn't really been any extra time to update this blog.
i've got a moment now, so here goes:
here is the latest video by Drew Lightfoot, for uk artist Larrikin Love. "Well, Love does Furnish a Life" is a perfectly catchy pop song where the chorus will be stuck in your head for hours. a cute video following a young girl and boy into the 'welcome rainbow', where they enter into a glowy forrest, with 'spirits' and animated hummingbirds. the girl is so enlightened, she wants to stay there forever, leaving the boy to go home alone.

Res Fest 2006 came to a close last night, after 4 days of amazing screenings. it was definitely time well spent, seeing such great Canadian and International talent on display. Revolver had a few videos featured, including The Heavy Blinkers "Try Telling That to My Baby", in the Cinema Electronica catagory. this video follows a cupcake on his adventure through a tasty candy-land, complete with dancing lollipops, giant cookies, and synchronize swimming candycorn! definitely a treat to watch!
mmmm....watch it here:

from 2004, the video for 'Megalomaniac', directed by Floria Sigismondi, features a bleak, dystopian view of the world portrayed using posterization and spriting (using 2D images in 3D settings). the broad theme of the video seems to be corruption in general, though oil and explosions are recurrent symbols as well. it's visually overwhelming and completely captivating.
