Skating Ordos, China's Ghost City

watch
Filmmaker Charles Lanceplaine follows a group of skateboarders to an abandoned city in Inner Mongolia

Called the "Dubai of northern China," Ordos is an Inner Mongolian city that's rich in resources and filled with interesting public architecture. Oddly, however, barely anyone lives there. Designed to be the home of one-million inhabitants, today only a few thousand people live there, making Ordos a veritable modern-day ghost town -- and a perfect skateboarding destination.

Star Slinger, "Mornin'"

watch
Surreal summer vibes for a cold winter's day.

Short of traveling somewhere tropical, you're not going to find a better dose of winter escapism than this Alan Jensen-directed video for Star Slinger's "Mornin'". Jensen's sunny, kaleidoscopic interpretation of the UK beatmaker's soulful sound has us wishing we owned a pair of 3D glasses. It's a Vimeo staff pick, a first for Jensen, who has made equally dreamlike visuals for the likes of Toro y......read more

Then, during the chorus, we are treated with sweeping landscape shots......read more

Young Galaxy, "Phantoms"

watch
Ghost-themed vid offers up some seasonally appropriate spookiness

Just in time for Halloween, Montreal band Young Galaxy release this new vid for "Phantoms" off their latest LP, Shapeshifting. The clip fregoes the animated approach in favor of a live action tale involving two ghosts (of the bedsheet variety) haunting a forest and generally acting goth'y. Hazy lighting and spectral cinematography give this one a strange and spooky vibe. ...read more

Artist Giacomo Miceli animates panoramic images from Google Street View

With his video for A Ghost Train's "Chemin Vert," Italian artist Giacomo Miceli takes us on a mind-warping journey spanning four seasons and five continents. Using only images pulled from Google Street View, Miceli spliced them together through a process known as stereographic mapping. The results just made our pupils spiral. In his words: Chemin Vert is the result of a slow process of......read more

White Ghost Shivers, "Santa's Sack"

watch
Mr. Claus has a special toy just for you.

If you're not listening closely, "Santa's Sack" by White Ghost Shivers sounds like another family-friendly Christmas song. Listen closer, and you realize the lyrics are slightly more, er, adult-oriented. Eric Power's mixed media animation brings the suggestive lyrical content to the forefront. Because Santa only comes once a year......read more
