Khalil Joseph directed two of our favorite music videos (we should probably call them short films) from the last couple of years, Flying Lotus' "Until the Quiet Comes" and Shabaaz Palaces' "Black Up." Back in 2010 Khalil also joined forces with the renowned Brazilian singer and actor Seu Jorge (City of God, The Life Aquatic) to create a two-part film inspired by Jorge's self-titled Seu Jorge and Almaz album.

Let's get Escher. Metronomy is a band that understands how to make a good music video, a memorable one, one with a little extra touch of artistic detail in every video. For their new single, Month of Sundays, the band had director Callum Cooper create a visual look. The director told Nowness, "When I heard the track, the stark harmonies brought to mind the Russian children’s choirs of the 1970s."

Despite the deep and complex chemistry of analog instant film, with new meaning, it has returned to our lives. Turning light into images, if not ingenious, is then the simple joy of watching magic develop.

As an independent print publication in 2014 who has seen similar trends, the trailer for this documentary makes us happy. Made You Look is a documentary about the UK DIY graphic arts scene of the 21st century. Via candid interviews with top British creatives, publishers and agency owners we explore the fact that more people than ever seem to be turning to analogue means of creating things, even though we are living at the height of the digital era.
