We’re in a new era of entertainment.
With so much content at our finger tips thanks to the 3 W’s we are no longer to conform our entertainment to the drip feeding TV companies who decide what we watch and when we watch it while blasting us with adverts making 30 min shows only show 20 mins of stuff worth seeing. It’s not surprising the internet not plays such a big part in out lives as far as entertainment is concerned.
As 2011 comes to an end I thought I’d share some of my favourite Interweb content with you.
Chase & Status – Blind Faith (Uploaded Dec 9th 2010)
Definitely one of the best videos I’ve seen this year has to be Chase and Status – Blind Faith. It was only when I did a little research into the making of the video for this blog that I realized the video was recorded for the track. The video is that authentic I thought they used old footage from the early 90′s to make the video especially when I saw some dude off his nutt with dilated pupils 8)
But as it turns out it was directed by Daniel Wolfe and even though I was never a part of the UK rave culture as I lived in Greece at the time I still get nostalgic with head tingles every time I watch this video. It truly is a work of art.
Will Kennard of Chase & Status said in an interview about the video: “The director Dan Wolfe is a crazy genius and we have nothing but mad respect for him.
“He only used equipment from 1991 or earlier – hand held cannon camcorders – proper crap ones, we were really nervous when saw the inital footage – because the quality was rubbish.
“And he only wanted tunes from 1991 played during filming, I thought he was off his nut.
“You can see all the people in the video are really off their face with their eyeballs dilated – its all obsessively authentic.
“My favourite bit is the guy doing the Prodigy dance. No matter where you went back then, there was always some dude off his cake dancing on his own in a room. [source]
