Let it Go – Nobody Beats the Drum

A lot of memorable music videos have passed by on the Short Shot blog, and Nobody Beats the Drum never disappoints us with their creative and funny videos. Remember those cute cats running around laser pointers? Their new video Let it Go is a sexy, funny animation about a hard working man letting it all go. This week, instead of the musicians (who are great of course!) we put illustrator Levi Jacobs in the spotlight with a short interview!

No Church in the Wild – Romain Gavras


This month saw the release of a new musicvideo by Romain Gavras. Because of his great, but pretty nihilistic videos for Justice and M.I.A., we were keeping a close watch on the new stuff he was doing. After doing a feauture, he is back with the short form and this time made a video for Jay-Z and Kanye West’s No Church in the Wild. The chorus of the song has the line “Human beings in a mob” and Gavras took it from there. 5 minutes of total anarchy reminding us of the London riots last year, although Gavras was mainly inspired by the Greek riots (and went as far as to even design the police uniforms in that fashion). Maybe his style seems to become a bit repetitive, but there is enough great stuff in this video for us to include it in the blog: the dramatic close-ups of the statues, great slow motion scenes, the lasers that seem to turn the whole event into a light show and lets not forget the elephant! Gavras know how to give violence a great aesthetic feel.
