For the last four years, Vanity Fair have been doing an interview with Billy Eilish where they ask her the same questions each year year. They first caught her in 2017, right before she blew up, so it’s amazing to watch the changes as she’s become one of the biggest pop stars in the world.
I have no doubt this will eventually get sherlocked because it’s such a great idea: use your video’s virtual background for actually useful stuff, like presenting slides, so that the audience don’t have to choose if they want to see the presenter or the slides.
While we wait for David Ehrlich’s annual compliation video of his best films of 2019 (which are still the high water mark for this kind of thing – 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012), Sleepy Skunk has put together a pretty great mashup of some of the trailers from the year.
I’ve probably seen maybe a quarter of the films in this video, and of the one’s I’ve seen, not all of them were particularly great (I wasn’t, for example, a fan of Midsommar. In fact, I think Ari Aster might be a complete charlatan), but in the context of this mashup, they all looked amazing. Which made me think maybe Errol Morris was right when he said
I believe that there are no good movies, no good books, no good music compositions just great scenes, great passages, great moments.
(Except for Mad Max: Fury Road. That is a perfect movie.)
