    • Radioactive Tubular Girls by LeeDM101 / Video by Instamatic

      LeeDM101 asked for someone to make a video for his excellent mashup and I jumped at the chance of editing Kraftwerk, Duran Duran, Mike Oldfield and Calvin Harris together with Attack of the 50ft Woman and Public Service Announcements from the atomic age of the 1950's. So this video is spanning the 50's, 70's, 80's & 00's, and prog, techno, house & pop, from the atomic age to the iPod age! Worth it just to see Kraftwerk dancing along with Duran Duran and Mike Oldfield at least!

        from Lawrence Martin / Added

        Highlights from a talk given by animator and filmmaker Ian Emes on his work and recent exhibition at Unit24 gallery in London. Taken from Unit24 gallery: --------- Biography: Ian Emes – Director After studying fine art at Birmingham College of Art, Ian began his career as an animator. His award winning experimental film French Windows (1973), brought him to the attention of Pink Floyd who commissioned him to direct their first animated concert film The Dark Side of the Moon (1974), which includes the legendary Time sequence. Ian also acted as advisor on The Wall, while creating other works such as Tubular Bells for Mike Oldfield (1975) and the iconic Oriental Nightfish for Paul and Linda McCartney (Palm D’Or nomination Cannes1978). During this period Ian made numerous other experimental films such as The Beard (Berlin 1980), and The Box of Delights (BBC 1984). His London studio gained a reputation for ground breaking visuals and he was cited as the foremost British animator of the eighties, winning accolades around the world. In 1982 his achievements were celebrated in a retrospective at the National Film Theatre. Concurrently Ian diversified into live-action, writing and directing short films, amongst them Goodie Two Shoes, (produced by Jeff Katzenberg for Paramount Pictures, receiving a British Academy Award and Oscar Nomination, 1983). Music videos include the – quote – ‘masterpiece’ The Chauffeur (Duran Duran 1982), and The Wall – Live in Berlin (Roger Waters, starring Rupert Everett and Marianne Faithful, 1990). He has directed numerous award-winning commercials for Ridley Scott Associates. Television series include the cult How to Be Cool (starring Roger Daltrey, adapted by Ian from the novel by Phillip Pullman, 1989), Streetwise (starring Andy Serkis 1989), Buddy Faro (starring Dennis Farina, NBC, 1992), The Invisible Man (Universal, 2000), Sir Gadabout (starring Tamsin Egerton, produced by Linda James, receiving a British Academy Award Nomination and INDIE Awards Best Children’s Programme, 2002). He has made four feature length films, Knights and Emeralds (produced by Sir David Puttnam for Warner Brothers, adapted into a novel for Fontana Paperbacks, 1987), the cult film The Yob (starring Keith Allen, C4, 1988), The Munsters Scary Christmas (produced by John Landis for Universal, 1996) and the critically acclaimed Deadly Summer (starring Francesca Annis and Pauline Quirke, C5, 1997). Recent works include the music video Space and the Woods (Late of the Pier 2009), the installation film Flightpath Tegel, (John Foxx 2009), a retrospective exhibition It Was A Thursday Night at the Horse Hospital in London and DNA, a collective show with celebrated filmmakers and musicians such as Alex Proyas and Gary Numan. He participated in the group exhibition It Could Happen To You at the Ikon gallery in June 2010 with other prestigious artists and his new installation film, International Aiirport Plastic screened at the John Foxx 30th Anniversary Show at the Roundhouse. Ian has just scooped his third British Academy Award, this time for directing and designing the TV series Bookaboo, which has also took Best Children’s Programme at the Broadcast Awards. --------- Ian's website: http://www.ianemes.com/ Unit24 website: http://unit24.info/ Lawrence Martin website: www.lawrencemartin.c.uk

                This is a commercial we made for a best of Mike Oldfield scheduled to coincide with his performance at the Olympic opening ceremony at London 2012. We wanted to create a simple but elegant pack build over 30 seconds that would emphasise the atmospheric and epic tracks rather than fight for attention.

                  The Tubòfon is a percussive automatable instrument. The different lenghts of each tube generate different tones when the tubes are percuted. The tubes are percuted through an array of electromagnetic pistons (solenoids), using an Arduino board as a microcontroller.
