Turning 40 is never easy (we’re told) but we had a blast putting together another killer line-up. Start your year off with a little kick in the cranium – check out Stash 40…
It all starts on the cover when Stuttgart’s Unexpected plays rough with rugby-crazed aliens for Snickers, then The Mill gets all theatrical for Noam Murro and PlayStation 3, Shilo goes to ”War” with Angels & Airwaves, PandaPanther and Against All Odds crank out two of the best Zune virals yet, Jellyfish Pictures brings on the beautiful decay in “Footprint” for The Discovery Channel, Magiclab saves the day (and the princess) for TER, Wildbrain kick-starts a dormant genre with their dry yet absurdist Virgin Airways in-flight safety video, Alphabetical Order channels the early 20th century for Stella Artois, Optimus goes way over-the-top in a complete cheese-fest for the AICP/Mid-west show and BSL Productions in Montreal delivers one of our favorite videos from 2007: the awesomely creepy Socalled “You Are Never Alone”.
But wait – yes, of course there’s more…
Lobo is here with four cool clips for Target, Wanda points out the many scary dangers of winter fashion faux pas, The Ronin and Dstrukt slice up NYC to open OFFF NY, Dieter Wiechmann and the Perish Factory spit out more of their singular video anarchy for Boresnore’s new video, MTV.ca bring snow back to Canada with some very funky flying fauna, Mainframe lands the Nick Kid’s Choice Awards in the UK with a bang, Moving Picture Company goes all radiological for Sagem, and Man vs Machine makes sure VH1 is all cuckoo-cool for the holidays.
And for the talent scouts among you, here’s four fresh names to keep an eye on: Passion Pictures new directing collective Bonzom and their “Lollipop” music video for Mika; Joh Kuemmel and his recent spec work for Greenpeace and Nike; Alex Villagrasa and his music video for Gallygows “The Users”; and UK student Talli Peled and her smart new VFX short film called “Pop Quiz”.
There’s more, but I’m running out of room and you’re running out of attention span – check the full list of contributors below.
There are four BONUS FILMS on Stash 40 and each one is utterly different than the next. All the more interesting when you find out they’re created by one man. This program of work from Japanese director/animator/programmer Mamoru Kano launches our new series of directors’ showcases.
Your BONUS MUSIC on Stash 40 is an
atmospheric suite of seven MP3s direct from the fine people at Type Records
including tracks from Deaf Center, Xela, Zelienople, Sylvain Chauveau, Broderick,
Ryan Teague and Helios.
Check out the rest of the DVDs in the Stash series!
