Fire (Jimmy Edgar Remix)

Erik West directed this really nice video using tilt shift and stop motion techniques.
The artist in the song is Codebreaker featuring Kathy Diamond

As Eric says “None of the snow in this piece is simulated. I went out and show on the snowiest days of winter. The last scenes in the video were shot during a blizzard.”

It was shot using a Canon Powershot SD630 Point & Shoot. Some additional footage was shot on a Sony EX1 by Jeff Thomas.
Posted using Final Cut, Photoshop, Motion and Color.

Street fighter – Financial crisis version

The financial crisis is everywhere!
People are loosing their jobs globally and we don’t know yet how long this crisis will last yet.
This is inevitably affecting everyone in some way, even videogames like street fighter…but at least there is funny people like the guys at CBFresh who try to make us smile while the world seems to be going to hell :)

You can find lovely characters like Fanny Mae, Dow Jones, Goldman, Merrill Lynch and more, i like their combos too
