David Wilson started out studying illustration at Brighton University. He then began using his drawings to create movement and animation videos, and when YouTube sprang up, he started putting them online, where they started to garner quite a bit of interest. They’re so unique and creative, featuring hand-drawn illustrations as well as stop-animation with face paint and more.
This video takes you behind the scenes as you get to see the making of the creations as well as the end result on the screen. It’s really interesting to see not only the kind of props and cameras they use, but in addition to hear David talk about the inspiration behind the stories of his music videos. The video as a whole is also an interesting look at how to layer backstage b-roll over a simple two-camera interview.

This multimedia piece by the New York Times is a great example of the journalistic pieces we are currently producing. Many of the shots in this piece are done in a clever way that helps convey the idea of the title, since most of the subjects being interviewed are discussing the culture of women’s bodies in Venezuala while they are surrounded by the altered mannequins, are adjusting the shapes of the mannequins, or are getting work done to their own body.
We have the two camera interview set up at the beginning that the producers cut to throughout the piece, as well as single camera and action interviews along the way, so it’s a great piece for reference when contemplating using a mix of interview styles. The surgery shots are grotesquely powerful, and the constant shots of mannequin bodies piled on one another or stacked in a shed remind us just how superficial and manufactured our idea of beauty can be.
