How To Destory Angels

Rupert Sanders directs this grim music video for Trent Reznor & Co’s new music project How To Destroy Angels. Not for the squeamish, as it focuses on the aftermath of a violent attack on a well-dressed couple in a hotel room, and the visual effects in this video are actually quite good. If you like what you hear, you can also download the band’s new ep for free here.

To add critical commentary, I should say that the visual of people unaffected by a burning room has been a re-occurring image since I first saw it in Charlie Kaufman’s Synecdoche, NY, a film that I cannot recommend highly enough. I have seen it in at least one other piece since and it’s possible that it has been done several times before in a similar fashion that I am unaware of, but I’m attributing it to Kaufman. In my opinion, this doesn’t take anything away from the music video because it is done so well, but the next time I see it, it will start to feel derivative.

Before this video, I had never heard of Rupert Sanders, but I definitely remember his work. Sanders has directed several mainstream commercials that all tell gritty, gripping narratives that you don’t forget. You may remember seeing his epic commercial for Halo ODST. Videos after the break.

Rango Trailer


Do yourself a favor and check out the trailer for the upcoming animated comedy, Rango, starring the voice of Johnny Depp. The visual style of the film is stunning, and the composition of every scene is perfect. Top notch work by Paramount, who we’re not familiar with seeing attached to animated films like this. Watch the trailer in 1080p and look forward to the release of this film March 18, 2011.

I’ve been waiting for a decent quality version of this to pop up on Vimeo (Flightpattern’s video service of choice) for some time now, and here it is. Logorama: the 17-minute animated film created by H5. The picture won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short at the 82nd Academy Awards. While it may appear to be light and friendly, the film has some salty language and violence so it might be better watched at home rather than work. You also might recognize a song in the end if you enjoyed Fallout 3 as much as I did. Enjoy!

UP THERE is a new documentary featuring the dying craft of hand-painted advertising in New York. This is a beautifully-shot doc that features a unique profession that most probably don’t think about too often. You can learn more at the film’s website.

Thanks again to Tanner Woodford for another quality contribution.
