Ebru – The Art Of Drawing On The Water

Ebru is the Turkish art of paper-handling or marbling. The oldest known Ebru was founded in the 11th century. It shows that even at this time the art had reached perfection. According to scientists, it probably took many centuries to achieve the astounding quality of this art form. Ebru is the so old that to this day there are disputes on its origin.

100 Years Of Style In 100 Seconds

The amusing and interesting short video was created to commemorate the grand opening of Westfield Stratford City, the largest urban shopping center in Europe. The Viral Factory produced an original and fun short, called 100 Years / Style / East London.

The clip describes a century of fashion and dancing styles in East London, from September 13, 1901, to September 13, 2011. A well-known British composer Tristin Norwell took a single music track and changed the main theme in order for it to fit the different time periods.

The movie clip is directed by Jake Lunt and shot for four days in various East London locations. The video rapidly goes through different styles from the 20s to the present day, and apart from the effective synergy of music, dance and clothes, a careful selection of props and locations brings pleasure to the eye.

Vehicle – a music artist

A new music video from OK Go, made in partnership with Chevrolet, released as an advertisement for Super Bowl XLVI, features the band “performing” the song by driving a Chevrolet Aveo, outfitted with retractable pneumatic arms designed to play the instruments, through a rally car course, striking musical instruments on the sides of the course, so it looked like the car is playing the music. OK Go set up over 1000 instruments over two miles of desert outside Los Angeles, where the filming took place. The whole scene took four months of preparation and four days of shooting.
