Feel // Bombay Bicycle Club

If you couldn’t already tell, there are so many wonderful lessons to take away from this gorgeous music video:

1) There is no such thing as a purely PoC storyline - many emotions are universal and you don’t need white actors to depict them.

2) There is a difference between appreciation and appropriation.  Taking cues from Bollywood motifs and music and depicting them within the same context is definitely appreciation.  

3) Representation is important.  The director and the actors are all Desis.  How fucking brilliant is that?!

I’m sure you spotted so many more.  All in all, super well done to the Bombay Bicycle Club for turning out a supremely fantatstic music video.

Here is my shot for the Moon Animate Make-Up! project (moonanimate)

Due to the camera flashes, I didn’t want to add too many frames of animation - it was starting to look really hectic. In fact, I had more frames, for Mars and Jupiter in particular, but I pulled them near the end because it was just too much to look at!

I wanted to go for a serious style - the sort of thing I want to see from the new show! But at the same time, I couldn’t help but add in some silliness.

I’ve only ever done clean-up animation for a now-defunct iPhone game, so this was a new experience for me. Doing everything from start to finish was a lot of work, and I didn’t have a lot of time to spend on this, so I knocked it out in three days, and now I have to move on now. Ideally, I would have liked the motion of Venus’ hair to be even more dramatic, but oh well…!

VENUS FILLS ME WITH LIFE

Oh my god this is a TREASURE.

"Kinks Shirt" by Matt Nathanson

What I really appreciate about this video is that the song makes no mention of the woman’s trans* status; they could have easily done something different with this video, and had Matt’s love interest be cis.

But no, she’s trans*, and most importantly, Character!Matt doesn’t care.  They meet, they flirt, they sleep together, they talk over breakfast and clearly have a connection.  That’s what matters, not the fact that this woman wasn’t born with a vagina.

THIS IS A BIG DEAL YOU GUYS

God, I didn’t think I needed more reasons to love Matt Nathanson but apparently now I have some.

okay wow this is super cute

i don’t think i’ve ever in my life seen any form of media where there is a trans woman as a love interest who isn’t treated like a freak, isn’t made into a weird fetish object, AND LIVES THROUGH THE ENTIRE THING

and suddenly here it is

i mean its not totally perfect in every way (the “unveiling” of her trans status to the viewers made me cringe a little) but the fact that she’s trans, he knows she’s trans, and it has no bearing on whether he’s into her is just

its fucking nice to see something positive for once

PLUS THE AUDIENCE JUST APPLAUDS AND THERE’S NO GROSS REACTION SHOTS OF PEOPLE GASPING AND I HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT THIS

Seriously,

Can we please have more commercials like this? 

In class today, we had a lovely discussion how the psychology of color, the ideology of stereotypical color assignment, and how it all relates in cinema and the success of movies depending on the societies creating movies and the societies viewing those movies and used this video as an example of the societal norm of “girls only like sweet, pink, sensitive things”. It was very insightful and got the class out of taking a quiz.

Also, Jesus fuck we need more advertisements like this.

I’m delighted and depressed by this: it made me laugh, but I’m kinda down that THIS WAS LEGIT THE BEST GAMBIT EVER SEEN ON FILM THUS FAR.
