It’s time to blend Shaolin skills and funky samples! So we come back in 1998, when Robert Fitzgerald Diggsbetter known by his stage name RZA (an American music producer, member of legendary Wu Tang Clan. and occasional actor, director, screenwriter) released the soundtrack to a movie that would never come to fruition: “Bobby Digital In Stereo.” This short video is what Travis Hopkins imagines the opening title sequence for that unfinished film. WU TANG FOREVER!

Andrey Muratov

Andrey Muratov is a director from Moscow. I definitly love the videos above. It’s just a ball of ice being melted, but it looks and sounds and feels like so much more, and that’s why this is so successful and cool looking. Same for the video filmed for a company of flower delivery. Really nice job!

Battles-La Blogotheque

Wall Street, a track from Battle’s new album Gloss Drop, was filmed by La Blogoteque in The Hotel de Ville, the magnificent city hall and mayor’s office in the centre of Paris. This is the latest of their Take Away Shows, ceck more from them on their website. The Take away shows are la Blogotheque’s first video podcasts. Every week, they invite an artist or a band to play in the streets, in a bar, a park, or even in a flat or in an elevator, filmig then the whole session. Of course, what makes the beauty of it is all the little incidents, hesitations, and crazy stuff happening unexpectingly.
