Jain Works the Angles
Director Paul SG Boyd shares his favourite web videos from the past week. Any theme, any format – it’s a web video free-for-all!
Jain – “Come”
Camera tricks and wacky angles abound in the video for Jain‘s debut single “Come”.
Directed by Greg & Lio, “Come” sees Jain hanging around the house in an assortment of weird ways: diving into coffee cups, plucking airplanes out of the sky, and even growing several new pairs of arms.
While we’ve seen many of these setups before, “Come” is a slickly-produced, playful video that captures the song’s laid-back vibe perfectly.
Key & Peele – “Basketball Commentary”
Just in time for the NBA Finals, the duo takes aim at court-side commentators in “Basketball Commentary”.
What begins as insipid banter quickly descends into madness, as “grown-man” commentator Chick Sarica shouts nonsensical words before suffering an apparent brain aneurysm.
K-Michel Parandi – “From The Future With Love”
Our final video is a throwback from 2013 that has recently resurfaced and started to receive some Internet love.
Rival factions of corporation-backed cops serve the public according to the terms of their crime coverage, looking the other way if crimes fall outside of the insurable offences for a particular individual.
Originally conceived as a web series, several years ago Parandi indicated that he’d received an offer to direct a full-length feature based on the short. While that hasn’t happened, a recent re-upload by the CG Bros has revived interest in the project.
Could a future where policing is a for-profit service be far off? Perhaps not, but in the meantime we’ll stick to hiring goons.
