Tom Sachs for VistaJet Flight Safety Video

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 15, 2013
I flew on Virgin America on Monday, and their airplane/flight safety video is one of the better ones in the industry if you think a bit of irony and humor is good with your "danger, your seat can't float ,you will drown" scenario you face with while they serve you white wine and diet coke on your way to San Francisco. Tom Sachs, one of the more innovative and interesting big wig artists of the moment, created a safety video for luxury private jet company, VistaJet. Who says stop-motion and Barbie doesn't equate to feeling safe?

Appreciating: Saul Bass and the Movies

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 08, 2013
On May 8, 1920, one of the most iconic and influential graphic designers, Saul Bass, was born. Creating posters and opening film sequences for classics like Pyscho, North By Northwest, Vertigo, Anatomy of a Murder, West Side Story, Cape Fear, Goodfellas, Casino, and countless more, we give a nod to the legend who passed away in 1996. Here is a collection of his great posters, and a few of our favorite opening title sequences... enjoy. Even Google got into the mix with a fantastic ode to Mr Bass on their search page... 

Dancing Stop-Motion Life-Drawings

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 03, 2013
Wriggles & Robbins put together this short stop-motion film to promote life-drawing classes at east London's Book Club. In the film, a life model is drawn by the students and dances from easel to easel. After setting up ten easels and capturing the artists sketching the model at a different angle, they edited it together by merging each drawing into the next.

IBM scientists have created the world's smallest movie using a scanning tunneling microscope (STM) to drag the atoms across the surface of a copper place using magnetism...taking Stop-Motion to a whole new (very very tiny) level.

Trailer: Michel Gondry's "Mood Indigo"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 01, 2013
We had heard this film was in production, but forgot about it until yesterday when we saw a new trailer for Michel Gondry's "Mood Indigo." Looks like the French filmmaker is back to creating the more whimisical, creative, and surreal fantasy worlds of some of his best films (Eternal Sunshine, Science of Sleep). Remember when we did a photoshoot with our Petit Gondry a few years back to coincide with our interview with Grand Gondry? That was fun. Now watch the trailer... 

Watch: Willie Witte's Analog Visual Effects

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 30, 2013
We really enjoyed this short expiremental video by documentary filmmaker Willie Witte. When not working or planning documentaries, Willie experiments with analog visual techniques, some of which he applied in this video. None of the visuals in this video were computer generated!

We hope you enjoy this languid and softly sensual video from Nathen Atia, featuring gorgeous Scottish redhead Lass Suicide. Sultry yet tender, Lass exudes a kind of old school glamour combined with a provocative edge that you can't help but fall in lust with.
