Billy Boyd Cape’s second collaboration with KWAYE has been released today on Noisey. The video is a coming-of-self story in which KWAYE encounters characters who represent different parts of his past who have felt constrained or repressed. From beginning to end, we see the transformation and rebirth of KWAYE as someone who is breaking loose from the boundaries of containment, to someone in control and finally empowered with self-worth. 

Watch this space for more from this great collaboration. 

Niall O’Brien’s "Porn Hurts Everyone” Photography Book

Niall O’Brien’s "Porn Hurts Everyone” Photography Book

Academy filmmaker & photographer Niall O'Brien will release Porn Hurts Everyone, an intimate and unobtrusive look at people living across the stretches of America's Northwest. Bound together by the unpredictable course of a road trip he took through those regions, Niall's images display a striking naturalism that's richly exhibited elsewhere in his work. The timeliness of Porn Hurt's Everyone's publication was unintentional, but perhaps because of this, Niall's shots manage to cut an unguarded story of individuality, humanity and character out of the broad strokes of today's political narrative. 

Porn Hurts Everyone is released worldwide on May 2nd 2017. The book is available at select bookstores globally and online at www.niallobrien.co.uk/sales/

Introducing Billy Boyd Cape

Introducing Billy Boyd Cape

A+ is very excited to announce our latest signing, Billy Boyd Cape.

Billy’s passion for filmmaking started as a teenager when he started photographing and filming musicians of all sorts, from Pendulum, Pussy Riot to FKA Twigs,. He studied at Bournemouth Film School but spent most of his time back in London collaborating with classmates and directing music videos. He quickly took off, garnering millions of views by making several commercially successful videos for Top 40 artists such as Jakwob and Mr. Hudson.

His personal project A Wander Through Hong Kong got him his first Vimeo staff pick and his short film More Hate Than Fear has been nominated for awards at Camerimage and the Royal Television Society.
Most recently he’s been collaborating with the fresh genre-bending artist, Kwaye from LA record label Mind of Genius.

Keep your eyes peeled to see what he’s up to next as we look forward to creating some amazing work with him. Welcome Billy.

This week, Pitchfork's senior editor, Ryan Dombal, celebrates the subtle radicalism of Radiohead's iconic music videos, singling out Jonathan Glazer's 'Karma Police' as the timeless embodiment of their unique sound and image. Dombal sees in Glazer's work a significance that stretches beyond it's own provocative power and suggestive ambiguity, to help 'turn an inherently craven medium into something genuinely inventive.' Follow the link below to read his conversation with those involved in the shoot - the band, their video commissioner, and Jon himself - as they recall that process, with all its challenges and moments of discovery.

Lenert, Sander & The Advertising Copy Cats

Lernert, Sander & The Advertising Copy Cats

Lenert & Sander’s work has always been a visual spectacle with innovative quirks that of course caught the eye of the advertising industry but not all attention has been good attention. They have been victims of big brands blatantly stealing their ideas and visual style, companies such as Ray-Ban, Expresso and Sony. For creatives such as Lenert & Sander it is next to impossible to go up against brands such as these to make a case but they do not blame those who plagarise. They empathise with the struggle of being creative, as Lenert says regarding the advertising industry: “Let’s cut them a little bit of slack. Maybe they don’t understand the difficulty of presenting great work in mood boards and forgetting that they get stuck with that. That’s something that I think we’re all together in – I think we need to rekindle that. Maybe when you present something as a mood board…” To say imitation is the best form of flattery can sometimes be the case but Lenert & Sander feel the advertising industry after decades still never change in regards to plagiarism but they are optimistic about the future saying “we’d like to take copying and change it into something positive.”
