Lucy McLauchlan @ Fame Festival 2012 Video

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 07, 2012
Clocks slay time. That is a great line. Why I'm thinking about The Sound and the Fury at noon on a Friday, while watching Matt Watkins' wonderfully quiet and subtle short documentary on Lucy McLauchlan creating various art objects at FAME Festival, I actually have no idea. Except, this is definitely one of the better 4 minutes you will spend today, and has an overall message that will resonate; You. Must. Create. (Sorry YMC, but you copyrighted a good sentiment). Digression done, watch.

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 20, 2012
Turn Me On, Dammit! is an independent movie made by the Norwegian documentary filmmaker Jannicke Systad Jacobsen.

FriendsWithYou: "Cloudy"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 25, 2012
We saw this last week, and forgot to mention it here on the site! Miami-based artists, Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III, aka FriendsWithYou, just created this short animatio, Cloudy, featuring their signature style and minimal character design with a playful, soulful piece. Or as FWY say, "a sweet, visual soundscape that takes the viewer through a personal journey into the sky. Sing, dance and relax as you follow a cast of clouds and raindrops through an entrancing adventure you'll wish to take over and over again."

Famous Faces Behind the Scenes Captured by Michael Tighe

Juxtapoz // Saturday, July 21, 2012
Faces are the main way people are recognized, unless you suffer from prosopagnosia (a disorder that the famed painter Chuck Close is diagnosed with). The power of the face is what makes images of pop culture celebrities so compelling: they speak to the masses in a way that many other images cannot. What is great about these photographs by Michael Tighe is seeing these iconic faces out of their usual contexts and often times capturing the movie stars in their personal homes.
