Chris Wilcha's Music Video for Indie Band Fol Chen

One of the busier guys around, Chris Wilcha managed to squeeze in a slick music video for LA-based indie band Fol Chen.  The band describes themselves as, "You know that mysterious black object that the creepy family is staring at on the cover of Led Zeppelin's 'Presence' album?  Fol Chen sound like that."  And it seems fair to say the video captures that weirdness, but judge for yourself.

"Cable TV" was shot using a Canon 5D, the same camera employed by Neil Tardio in his Volkswagen spots earlier this year.  The video was a featured video on Youtube and recently mentioned on Sasha Frere-Jones' blog at The New Yorker.

Nicolas Barker's Latest Work for the BBC

A series of four broadcast spots promoting BBC Radio 3, Barker's visions of daily life meeting classical music are rather charming, and since they're only set to air on the BBC, we thought we'd share them here with you!  Barker is a serious enthusiast of classical music, so the project was the best kind of challenge, forcing him to choose between classical favorites. 

Here are two of Chelsea's favorites, the first featuring a man meeting Purcell in the subway, and the second illustrating how Mendelssohn can inspire movement.
