In 2012 my friend set out to make a narco trafficking movie in Tijuana, Mexico. Little did he know that during the pre-production process he’d become engulfed in an infernal spirale. What follows is a movie that blurs the line between reality and fiction, life and fantasy. Checo Rubio pursued his passion for filmmaking further […]

By Franck Deron in New Music on Friday 14 December 2012

Communist nostalgia and nuclear missiles meet choppy electronic beats and on-point video editing. Turn it up to 11, red army style.

Inspiring photography by Benoit Paillé. Reminds me of John Pfahl’s work. Abstract meets nature photography, I’ve always been a fan of that. It’s pure, very zen.

Paintings by Josh Keyes

Franck Deron Reader Find

By Franck Deron in New Art on Monday 3 December 2012

Contemporary painter Josh Keyes has a new show in Seattle. I love his clean, sharp style and the way he constructs his art. Make sure to check out his studio blog. He builds little sets, and combines random elements, objects and animals to form what he calls ‘a hybrid of eco-surrealism and dystopian folktales that express a concern for our time and the Earth’s future’.

Found footage film creations by Franck Deron

Franck Deron Reader Find

By Franck Deron in New Film on Monday 3 December 2012

I find dwelling in found footage hugely rewarding. It strokes the senses of my mild synesthesia. When inspiration strikes, I comb through the web in search of clips, and then combine unrelated vintage, future retro, classic motion graphics, and obscure home movies, with the goal to create a new visual journey. It’s also a way […]

Video made using the weird visual glitches of Google Earth

Franck Deron Reader Find

By Franck Deron in Video on Friday 23 November 2012

As a pre-pubertarian kid, I had a strong passion for urbanism. I used to draw detailed city maps, sometimes including subway systems and contour lines. And when the original SimCity came out, I was in heaven. More than 20 years later and living in one of the most poorly designed urban centers in the world, […]

By Franck Deron in Video on Tuesday 6 November 2012

SlurpTV is a master collector of vintage clips, motion graphics, and obscure experimental films. For the joy of all he also combines these historical analog goodies with cute kittens, 80s italo electro, and composites it all together for us to grin at and smile through our jaded internet eyes.

Douglas Burgdorff’s NSFW films

Franck Deron Reader Find

By Franck Deron in Video on Tuesday 6 November 2012

Douglas Burgdorff is a filmmaker/photographer with a very personal style. Porn stars, gratuitous sex, saturated colors, dance music, dark humor. It’s loud, stupid, clever, random. John Waters meets the internet age.

The Frog: new music by The Hickey Underworld

Franck Deron Reader Find

By Franck Deron in New Music on Monday 5 November 2012

This is one of my favorite overlooked music videos of last year by Antwerp alternative rock band, The Hickey Underworld. Masterfully directed by Joe Vanhoutteghem, it’s a mind-bending loop of domestic violence and thickly layered weirdness. Can’t really compare it to anything out there. It’s unique, violent, wrong, entertaining, Belgian.

Kindan No Tasuketsu video featuring gifs by Tomoko

Franck Deron Reader Find

By Franck Deron in Video on Monday 5 November 2012

Tomoko makes very unique animated gifs. Crudely cut out anime characters depicting a lonely teenage girl in every day life, having sex, tossing french fries in the air, looking to murder a cute kitten with a sharp knife. These are deeply personal doodles, and in a way quite haunting. As a bonus, here’s a nice […]
