Breaking Out: Shut Up And Play The Hits – Trailer

by BerNs

Few bands have been this influential in recent years. While some of us are still hopping that they will come together again somehow, James Murphy and his project LCD Soundsystem left the stage for the last time on april 2nd, 2011 on what some have considered one of the greatest losses of the decade in the music scene.

Despite the sadness, they left a legacy behind with their unique and fresh music leaving 3 critically acclaimed albums and millions of fans all over the world. On February 8, 2011, the band announced on its website “We are retiring from the game. Gettin’ out. Movin’ on.” and that they would be playing their last show ever on April 2 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Shortly after the show became instantly sold-out.

This documentary, directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace, picks up the feel and energy of this 4-hour epic last show and tries to retrieve a more intimate portrait of James, providing us with clear evidence of the legacy of this band!

Here is the trailer released today and bellow the official synopsis:

“On April 2nd 2011, LCD Soundsystem played its final show at Madison Square Garden. LCD frontman James Murphy had made the conscious decision to disband one of the most celebrated and influential bands of its generation at the peak of its popularity, ensuring that the band would go out on top with the biggest and most ambitious concert of its career. The instantly sold out, near four-hour extravaganza did just that, moving the thousands in attendance to tears of joy and grief, with NEW YORK magazine calling the event “a marvel of pure craft” and TIME magazine lamenting “we may never dance again.” SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS is both a narrative film documenting this once in a life time performance and an intimate portrait of James Murphy as he navigates the lead-up to the show, the day after, and the personal and professional ramifications of his decision.”

Short-Films: 8 Hours in Brooklyn

by BerNs

Next Level Pictures brings us this unbelievable video shot within an 8 hour span in Brooklyn, NYC. They are working on a series of Spots and this is part of the footage for those. Its a collection of slow-motion captures gathered together to the sound of SkreamWhere you should be. But dont think this is any ordinary slow-mo, this was shot with a Phantom Flex Camera.

In case you dont know why that is relevant, this camera is one of the Wonders of our days and it slows down time with perfect smoothness with an incredible 2,564 frames per second and it can cost you between 50.000 to 150.000 $ depending on it specifications. The camera alone is enough to make jaw-dropping images but this video also displays top-notch cinematography by Jonathan Bregel and the result is a stellar piece of film. I was blown away by this and im sure you will be too:

Short-Films: The Burn Units – Ride / Alive

by BerNs

Burn Energy Drink is a high sugar, high caffeine content energy drink with a citrus flavor that comes in a 8.3 (250 ml) or 16.9 oz (500 ml) can. The drink is distributed in several countries by The Coca-Cola Company and the brand is hugely involved with extreme sports like skate, skiing and snowboarding and sponsors a number of events across the world but mainly in Europe and they also have several snowboarding teams across Europe. So naturally they’ve used those resources to create short-films involving their athletes and their brand resulting in a few artistic videos that have been coming out since last year from which i’m going to feature a couple.

The first one to come out was my favorite and its called Ride. Directed by Garth Davis and set on advertising agency Publicis Mojo, Sydney, Australia, the film was shot in Mexico City and features Steve Berra along with mexican skaters, Jesus Gonzalez, Eder Martinez, Mario Saenz, Angel Santiago and American Luis Tolentino. The film shows the skaters riding their boards across the city and lighting on fire as they go, bursting out the energy trapped inside their bodys. Its a seriously good, amazingly shot and brilliantly executed film! Unfortunately the Vimeo link (which had the most quality) is now private and we’re unable to display it here so we are featuring the Youtube link:

Alive its a more recent work released at the beginning of this year and features Austrian snowboarder Gigi Rüf, Norwegian Ståle Sandbech and French Arthur Longo in a film shot in Vorarlberg, Austria and directed by Per-Hampus Stålhandske. The concept is similar to the first but at the same time it has a completely different feel to it, nonetheless its also a brilliant video:
