We Used to Dance by James Murphy

whilewereyoung

LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy has a new project scoring the soundtrack for the film ‘While We’re Young’, written and directed by Noah Baumbach and starring Ben Stiller & Naomi Watts. ‘We Used to Dance’ is one of the compositions that Murphy has created for the film. It features soothing synths and a repetitive build that feels gorgeously cinematic. A gem of a track.

Murphy also contributed a cover of David Bowie’s ‘Golden Years’ and a new song ‘Only The Stars Above Welcome Me Home’, which you can also listen to above.

If you haven’t yet seen the trailer for the film check it out below:

For close to 20 years Ryan Neil has been a practicing Bonsai artist in America. The director of this short Ryan Bush provides an insightful look into the process and philosophical approach that Neil practices when he works with his Bonsai. There is a strong pursuit for balance. Balance through the design of the Bonsai as well as understanding the tree and what it needs to thrive. Overall I just found the video very calming.

Take a look at Ryan Neil’s exquisite collection of Bonsai here at Mirai – American Bonsai.

Check out some more video work from director Ryan J. Bush here.

For those in Portland, Oregon there will be a Bonsai event called The Artisans Cup. This will be held on September 25-27 2015. For more details visit The Artisans Cup site.

Can you tell what a movie is by just seeing the background of its poster? Madani Bendjellal has retouched a series film posters, just leaving the background and credit elements visible. Some are definitely easier to guess than others. I’d actually really like to get some of these as prints to hang up. To see the rest of the series visit Bendjellal’s Behance page here.

The Leviathan – Teaser Pitch [Dir. by Ruairi Robinson]

The Leviathan — Teaser from Ruairi Robinson on Vimeo.

Ruairi Robinson has unleashed a gorgeous looking concept teaser for his latest piece of work ‘The Leviathan’. The CGI is top notch as well as the sound design. I have posted about Ruari quite a while back with another short he did titled ‘Blinky’ which was also brilliantly executed. I’d love to see more of the world that Robinson has created with ‘The Leviathan’. I’m curious to see if he will take a crowdsourcing approach to the funding or if the concept gets picked up by a studio. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Check out Ruairi Robinson’s to see more work.
