It’s been a while since I posted a cool video, so here is one. It’s called L is for Luminous.
Apparently it’s all from actual neon signs in Hong Kong.
I mentioned this video a while ago on my Twitter, but I figured that I should feature it here on my blog as well, because it’s the single best video I’ve seen this year, I think. Or one of the best. Whatever. It’s a beautiful poem and a beautiful video illustration of that poem.
It also has the best word I’ve come across in years. Alonedom. It’s not the same as loneliness. It reminds me of what Henry Rollins said/wrote, “I’m alone, not lonely”. It takes away the negative connotation of being lonely. Alonedom, what a beautiful word.
Just a quickie… this one was mentioned by Kevin Pereira on his Twitter and it’s completely and utterly beautiful. You need to check it out.
I saw one of the following videos mentioned on Twitter today, I think it was Scott Mosier (@smosier) who linked to it, and it just blew my mind. It had such impressive photography and visual effects and I really love the retro gaming flavor. Check it out:
It also reminded me of a video I saw on Vimeo a while ago that was in a similar vein. It didn’t have anything to do with gaming, but rather the bird’s eye view of a big, New York-ish, city. There are no computer effects in it, although it might seem like a lot of it is CGI, and it’s not animatronic miniatures or anything like that either. It’s actually filmed from high places with an array of different camera lenses and other tech stuff that I’m not really in the know about, but it sounded interesting the way it was described on the guy’s homepage which gets a link on the video’s Vimeo page. It has aweome music too! Here it is:
