Speaking of Calexico...Richard Kenworthy used their Old Man Waltz song in his RCA graduate film, The Littlest Robo. Richard is part of the collective known as Shynola, along with Gideon Baws, Chris Harding and Jason Groves. Their work is characterized by a lo-fi look with high impact appeal. They have become one of the many creative studios pushing out cool videos that have their own distinctive quirky look. From Beck's 'E-pro' to UNKLE's 'Eye for an Eye' to Radiohead's 'Pyramid Song' there is no mistaking Shynola's scent marking their own territory around innovative style and ever-changing techniques. Go here to see their demo reel and here for a couple more videos. Also, for more of the top videos of last year, check out DoCopenhagen nicely compiled list (via Cartoonbrew). Scatological goodness!
