Coldplay – Strawberry Swing

The music video has been directed by Shynola and produced at Black Dog Films and The Directors Bureau.

The idea is old — ranging from James Blackton to Stefano Bertelli, not to mention those who accused this video of plagiarism — but the execution is fresh.

Geweldenaren van Ver

“Misfortune fell on us… They came from above!” The Earth is once again invaded by unfriendly aliens in a fashion that reminds of the more recent Ataque de Pánico! Youtube sensation.

Geweldenaren van Ver (Tyrants from Afar) is a “visual effects extravaganza”, “a tribute to science fiction films from the fifties and a reaction to the exaggerated patriotic character of recent american blockbusters.”

It is the work of: Wesly Grefrath and Floris Vos at Soulbase; Arjan van Meerten, Bobby De Groot and Sven Neve at House of Secrets. Music by Jeroen Tel at Maniacs of Noise.

Dragon Age: Sacred Ashes

For those who use to think that the Sean Connery voiced beast from Dragonheart was the dumbest dragon ever (this could be an idea for a Facebook group…), here’s finally a serious new candidate for the title.

Dragon Age, is a computer role playing game developed by BioWare. It will be published by Electronic Arts on November 2009.

The cinematic animation should be the work of Blur Studio, even though at the moment I can’t be 100% sure of this. Will update when possible.
