I came across this great short film from an online post on nylon.com. Commissioned by Swedish clothing line COS, Petra Collins’ film Drive Time features five young women talking about art, culture, and why they love living in Los Angeles. I was already convinced that LA is the city for me, but this short film really sealed the deal. I’m excited to meet more women pursuing creative careers, and can’t wait to find a home for myself in a city filled with such abundant culture and diversity. COS’ next film takes a look at NYC’s art scene and is directed by Aaron Rose. PS – If you like the song featured in Drive Time be sure to check out the band Cherry Glazerr, which is led by Clementine Creevy.
Lately I’ve been posting videos of the day more often – and I decided that, in honor of the popular #tbt phenomenon, on Thursdays I will post throwback videos. Before he was a well known director of feature length films, Spike Jonze was the king of music videos. Here is one of my favorite of his music videos, for the song ‘Drop’ by The Pharcyde, which was filmed in Los Angeles in 1995.
Today’s ‘Video of the Day’ is Ruby, a short film by Emma Allen that depicts life, death and reincarnation through face paint. It’s a hauntingly beautiful stop motion piece that looks like it took over 80 hours to complete. Enjoy.
