Woodkid : Maximizing Stage Design by Simplicity

No need for Woodkid / Yoann Lemoine to prove his visual genius anymore, beside shooting his own game changing music videos like "Run Boy Run" he directed for instance Lana del Rey's iconic 'Born To Die'… But really impressive and outstanding about his work is how he's able to create such captivating live moments with, well, comparatively very basic tools. Besides exact just two split seconds, there is not even a single color involved in this stage design. It's 'just' the perfect orchestration of movement, intensity and timing. Here is the Video, Woodkid performing 'Volcano' Live at Le Zénith, Paris

Quick YouTube Survey Results
This is just a tiny fraction of the survey results and very basic, but still interesting Items. Youtube is taking over the prime time as 'second screening' is becoming more popular by the hour and smart TV's blur the line between YouTube, hulu, Netflix, HBO and traditional TV. Content wise music is ruling your very personal program and is followed by comedy, fashion & beauty, trailers.... While the Music section is of course not 'just' music videos. Beside the music videos there are many interesting sub categories within music such as, documentaries, lyric videos, playlists and greeting messages. These results are obviously only representative for the Benjamin Ebel .com audience but that's really the one I'm currently most interested in. See the infographic in a higher resolution here:

A Berlin street musician is performing Bronski Beat's 80's classic 'Smalltown Boy' and then the original singer casually walks up and joins him, epic. And btw vertical filming rules… Music Monday!

One 'Secret' of Success in Creative Work
There is really no right or wrong in how creatives do their thing, but there might be at least one thing all creative success stories have in common: You have to start and you have to keep doping it, with believe in yourself no matter how often you get rejected. Here is Ira Glass' perspective on this topic, who is one of the most acclaimed storytellers of our time and it's a great advice. If you like, watch this short beautiful visualization of Ira Glass' quote

Something relaxing for this Sunday, OK except the part at second 49… 'Firewall' is a music installation by Aaron Sherwood, where the user is able to control the speed and velocity of a piano pattern by shaping the installation's surface. Not that you can't control a piano with your hands anyway ;) but for someone who's not able to play an instrument... this might be a very fascinating experience. See the video:
