3 videos that blew me away

Recently I have felt that the stuff I’ve been seeing on youtube etc. has been a little lacklustre. Until I saw these beauties that is, and here they are for your enjoyment


This is conceptually as well as visually nuts, an entire short (5 min) film was made by making a painting for each frame, which might explain why it took so long to make. The resulting effect is honestly unlike anything else I’ve watched. I really like the soundtrack as well, full of dark motifs although it could have done with a bit of compression/limiting to stop it being quite as fluctuating in volume (the intro is deceptively quiet so don’t crack the volume up too much if whatching for the first time. Still thoroughly awesome and well worth the years put into it

The Blind painter

Staying with the painting theme, this video is also incredible but for entirely different reasons. This guy has been blind since birth and can paint things that he feels accurately. I know it might look a bit long but it is really worth watching until the end of the vid… If you have any interest in how the human mind works, it’ll rock your world. The only thing it doesn’t tell you is how he does the colours.

Jean Yves Blondeau

This guy has been around for quite a while but everytime I see a new video with him in, it makes me smile. Essentially imagine attaching rollerblades to your entire body and hurling yourself down the sort of mountain road that would cause Jeremy Clarkson to spontaneously orgasm on camera… umm you get the picture. And if you don’t get the picture, just click on the video.

Hope you enjoyed

Love and Peace
