Ever since coming back from San Diego and running into the Pacific like an idiot, I'm a big fan of doing things naked. Not sure if the girl was happy with that move but thats another story after having a few beers. My girl "Roxy" posted this on Facebook and after seeing the video I immediately admitted that I was going to pillage, steal, and run away to my blog and post. The Naked And Famous are riding the wave of electro-pop but after listening to more of their songs I'm falling in love.
I was also interested in the director of their videos. Loved the shots and storytelling! It wasn't too direct and things were just painfully beautiful. Special Problems (loving the name!) phrase themselves as this:
"Campbell Hooper and Joel Kefali draw on their combined backgrounds in graphic design, fine art, film and music to present unique creative concepts, always inspired by the subject.
As a directing team Special Problems are adept in both live action and animation, and are immediately involved in all aspects of the production process."
I don't think this work is a "problem" at all, I think it's the answer to a lot of people who don't want to watch these shit videos on cable. Keep on doing whatchya be doing SP! And "The Naked and Famous", buy me a beer and I'll tell ya about SD. Enjoy the weekend peeps!
