I hereby invite You to my Pinterest-feed where you can find a collection of things that I find inspiring and/or useful in one way or another. Perhaps you will be able to see and recognize glimpses of things that inspire and influence me in my personal and professional work and most importantly perhaps find some inspiration yourself. I've been pretty bad at collecting this sort of material here on my blog, much due to it being a tedious process using the wordpress system, so I was really happy when I found out about Pinterest.
If there ever was a movie I whish I had worked on, this would be that movie. Directed by Emir Kusturica. Music by Goran Bregovic.
Im getting more and more interested and fascinated by the ways and means by which human organizations operate and finding out what makes them function in a successful way. Below are some of the most inspiring talks Ive found on the subject. Enjoy.
Dan Pink: The surprising truth about what motivates us.
Ed Catmull: Keep your crisies small
The following is a music video by Martin de Thurah for Fever Ray, featuring Karin Dreijer Andersson. Martin is the same director responsible for yet another of my absolute favorite music videos for Röyksopp- What Else is There. Have a look and get inspired!
The following photos are a part of the Gucci Fall/Winter 2008-2009 ad campaign. This bohemian inspired set of images is some of my favourites to date. Photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
Inspiring photography by Michael Kenna. These appeal to me very much! to see more visit his gallery.
"One of the great masterpieces of the 20th century, a supreme synthesis of form, content and performance. Arguably the most beautiful too, with its found locations, sets, colour, lighting, music, decor and costume. The straightforward elegance of Godard's shooting masks a story of great complexity and formal rupture, but underneath the philosophy, semiotics and allusion is a portrait of marriage and its decline. The tension between icy irony and resigned emotion results in Godard's most perversely moving film. It is also very funny, which is too little remembered."
I found the two following TED conference talks very inspiring and interesting. The first movie covers a talk by Ed Ulbrich about how Digital Domain created the artifical face for Benjamin Button, a movie by David Fincher. There is tons more makin-of material on the web covering this topic, especially on digital domain website. The other movie showcases a talk by Sir Ken Robinson which highlights the topic of creativity and education and how the one affects the other. Very interesting!
Have a look at this wonderful little short film, created by four french students, Antoine Perez, Céline Desrumaux, Francois Pons and Gary Levesque. It was made during a course at Supinfocom animation school in 2008. The finished piece looks like a million bucks to me! I love the style and cinematography of it. For more info. go to their collective website.

It's clearly a feelgood movie, evoking some nice thoughts in my mind..leaving that warm and fuzzy feeling, much like the following film (also for adidas) directed by the up-and coming director David Dawoodi whom I've had the pleasure of working with.
