Also, We're extremely
happy to see that the fucking dude Jon Watts gets massive props in Res
Magazine's best of the year for music videos:
Forrest "Stepping Off"
Directed by Jon Watts
This amazing video touched a nerd-meets-decadence nerve that is too often
overlooked, fusing Tolkien-esque imagery with Zeppelin style '70s rock
excess. We first showed the video at our May 2004 LA screening, where
it attracted the attention of some of the UK's top music video commissioners.
From there, its director, Mr. Watts, was commissioned to shoot not one,
but two videos for the legendarily creative video patron Fatboy Slim.
In Slim's "Wonderful Night," a jaunty New York night on the
town gets hairy when a man about town in spats and a tuxedo goes lycanthrope.
The second Fatboy video, a rendition of Steve Miller's classic rock high
school stoner anthem "The Joker," features a posse of newborn
kittens on a trip to the big city to catch one of Slim?s shows. Expect
big things from Watts and his New York-based cohorts at Waverly Films
if you see anything else, send
it on over to us!!!
