Music Video: Tommy Wallach’s Whisper

We’re completely in love with this delightfully hand-crafted, stop-motion music video for musician Tommy Wallach.

The shadow visuals and created movement are dark and deliriously delightful complements to the  song. Intricately and beautifully directed by Tallie Maughan.

If, like us, you have the burning desire to rush out and hear more of his work, you can listen/buy this track and more at his website — click here.

Strangers Touching Strangers

While we touch those we are close with regularly and freely, touch among strangers remains taboo in our culture. We are apt to apologize  for accidentally brushing a strangers hand or pull away quickly should our knees touch the person seated next to us.

Consequently, there’s something very moving about these portraits by photographer Richard Renaldi in which he asks strangers to touch other strangers.

There is a certain shock value to seeing people together that we would normally view as from different worlds – but beyond that, these photographs evoke the potential for intimacy that we all possess should we bridge the gap of space and custom a little more often.

View the whole series here. And read a great interview with Renaldi about the project here.

Lovely Love in the Park Animation

Cute Love-Filled Animation for Swarovski Diamonds called “City Park” with character design by Brigette Barrager.

We just adore the artwork in this piece – the soft colors and flickering tones on the animals are breathtaking. And as we know, we humans are not the only ones who know kissing matters.
