Creations—Random

This week's collection of films is a somewhat random sampling of my favorite new videos from the last month. From creatively-shot car commercials to animated love letters, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

1. BMW 'Bullet' 

2. The Proof That We Are Soulmates

Creations—Nature

[These are not your grandmother's Sabbath afternoon nature videos.] This week's short films feature artists for whom nature is not only a source of inspiration but their biggest collaborator.

Creations—Innovation

There is some wonderful innovation happening within the art world today. This week's short films feature some of the ideas that have been bubbling to the surface, from using projection in creative new ways to re-imagining what magazines will look like in the future.

1. Speed of Light

2. Østersøen (Ödland, Sankta Lucia)

Creations—Futures

This week's collection of films takes a peek at possible futures, as visual futurists leap ahead, imagining what could be. These imaginings range from visions of gardens that hover high above cities to 22nd century cars, complete with teleportation devices.

1. Cities in the Sky

2. Liquid Skies

Creations—Artists

This week's selection of films is focused on artists. The short films explore artists' connection to religion, spirituality, God, country, and war—connections that are sometimes fraught with tension but can bear amazing fruit.

1. Invocation

Creations—Weddings

A recent develop in the film world is the shift of the wedding video from the simple documentation of a day (and something retrieved only on rare occasions) to a polished short film. The short films featured this week are beautiful wedding and engagement videos that span cultures and unique ideas. Most importantly, they're all wonderfully romantic!
