A meeting between musician Jaimeo Brown and the New York-based filmmaker found the two of them shared similar views on how they liked to work, particularly in creating room for improvisation and intuition. With a new release for Brown coming up, a collaboration on a promo was the obvious next step. It was clear that Schiedon and Brown wanted to combine and reference elements from different eras and genres. And they shared a preference in working quite organically, combining high end technology with tactile, DIY methods. It was important not to lose the humanity in production, whilst also maintaining a sense of 'imperfection' within the filmmaking. Schiedon explains, "The video applies that notion of imperfection, for instance, by using a partly practical, partly animated, approach to bring the skeleton dancer to life. There are smoother ways to do it, but none of them are this much fun."
On the track "Be So Glad," from Jaimeo Brown Transcendence's breakthrough sophomore album "Work Songs", Brown and Chris Sholar (the production team that comprises Jaimeo Brown Transcendence) sample inmates from the Parchman Farm Prison in Mississippi in 1959. "Be So Glad" is a prime example of common repetition in work songs creating a type of mantra that changes the feeling of labor -- a vehicle to transport people from the high walls of despair to personal awakenings of freedom.
"'Work Songs' is one of the most exciting, experimental, and important albums set to drop this year." - VICE
Jaimeo Brown Transcendence is the product of long-time collaboration between Brown and co-producer/guitarist Chris Sholar (who won a GRAMMY® Award for his work on Kanye West and Jay-Z's Watch the Throne). Both emerging from a generation that appreciates the jazz in hip-hop, the artists with whom this duo has collaborated with speaks for itself. Brown, as drummer, has sat behind the skins for Stevie Wonder, Carlos Santana, Q-Tip, Carl Craig, Kenny Garrett, Geri Allen, and Bobby Hutcherson, among others. Sholar's work as guitarist and producer has spanned the likes of Beyonce, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Frank Ocean, A Tribe Called Quest, Robert Glasper, D'Angelo, Just Blaze, Common, Dr. Dre and more. More than just music, Jaimeo Brown Transcendence is a movement, a moment, and an imperative: home to a variety of collaborators and contributors, from different eras and across the globe.
History, art, technology, the future... this video perfectly captures the themes that are at the core of Transcendence.

They would be broadcast on the unique giant video wall in the entrance lobby of the Adidas global headquarters. One of its kind, the video wall is 28 meters wide and 3 meters high, made up of 140 Ultra HD screens which together create a futuristic viewing experience hard to describe. The 54K resolution allows visitors to see detail with incredible clarity even if standing right up to the screens. In fact the technology is so advanced that conventional filming methods have not yet caught up and special solutions are needed for content creation. This Case Film reveals the production of the first 3 films in this unique Video Wall series.

The probe is the furthest man-made object from the sun and witnesses unimaginable beauty and destruction. The film was triggered by the death of Dutch graphic designer Arjan Groot, who died aged 39 on 16th July 2011 from cancer. Stardust has been selected and awarded by film festivals worldwide for film craftsmanship.

Directed by Matthijs Joor, this entertaining film follows the tongue-in-cheek story of a DynaFlyte running shoe as it escapes from the ISA testing facility to join its fellow companions in a mass flight across Tokyo.

Erwin decided to build story-based chain reactions which were crafted entirely out of objects kids could find at home. The joy he wanted to capture was that of being able to build things that your parents would raise their eyebrows at (hence the flying squeezy-bottle heron and exploding sports-field). The heros of the idents are the kids themselves - cut out of snapshot photos and placed on cardboard figures. Disney XD also specified that the idents must have a Dutch 'feel' so objects were carefully made from subtely recognisable materials and products, such as the various food tins and bottles, chip boxes for football goals and traditional Dutch biscuits.

The three new idents, ‘Loop-the-Loop’, ‘Bugs’ and ‘Fly-by’ are a continuation of director Mischa Rozema’s theme for the channel. The initial brief for PostPanic was to encapsulate the mood and emotion associated with alternative music and create a series of idents to serve the MTV Rocks branding established by the MTV World Design Studio (Milano). Rozema developed a central theme of an on-going film that the viewer drops in and out of, and wrote a set of scripts based in an imaginary landscape populated with surreal characters and situations. Shot on location in Northern Spain, the footage was then brought back for some CG trickery back here in Amsterdam.

Written by Mischa Rozema and British graphic designer, Si Scott, the opening titles reflect their dark thoughts on a possible future entitled 'Year Zero' (also the theme of the festival). Directed by Mischa and shot on location in Prague, the film guides the viewer through a grim scenario embedded with the names of artists appearing at the 2011 OFFF festival. The live action was brought back to Amsterdam for post, primarily carried out by PostPanic’s in-house team of artists but also with the additional help of freelancers and partner companies that we have enjoyed strong creative relationships with over the years. It’s really fair to say that this was a labour of love by a passionate crew of people. Year Zero was screened and awarded worldwide including winning Golden Drums for Best Direction and Cinematography, an ADCN Best Direction Award and Gold Pencil at the One Awards in NYC.
