MOZILLA FIREFOX

Added on by Vinoth Varatharajan.

If you recently updated to the latest version of Firefox browser, you may have noticed the following video part of #Foxyeah campaign. I was commissioned to edit the Firefox's new ad campaign. Every prop is hand crafted by the awesome team at Vallée Duhamel. Each cut is seamlessly blend thanks to the preciseness of the motion controlled rig. Watch the making of video at the end of the post.

Special thanks to Josh Sherrett, Julien Vallée, Dave & Paula at Mono.

The Persian cat was cut out from the final draft. Also, my first time editing online on set.

Editing while surrounded by the director and the agency folks is quite nerve-racking...

ZOO LEGACY | SHE'LL NEVER FALL IN LOVE | MUSIC VIDEO

Added on by Vinoth Varatharajan.

I jumped at the opportunity to collaborate with my pals, Zoo Legacy for the second time. For the record, we shot it all on the Canon 550D, and had a lean crew of about eight to pull this off. Huge props to the guys, the gals, my baby cousin–especially Barrie MacLeod and his studio space who stepped up big to make this happen.

Here are some of the pre-production and pitch materials.

And some behind the scenes.

RUMBLE BY THE POSTERZ

Added on by Vinoth Varatharajan.

The Posterz are a three-piece from Montreal who boast some great self-annointed credentials: Husser "the hood punk", Kri$ the $pirit "the neurotic second coming of Nas", and Joey Sherrett "the weirdo production braniac". Following up the group's last single "All I Know" comes "Rumble", which we're premiering above. Watch and delight in the video's aesthetics, as the group roll through subway carriages, doing chin-ups, and mobbing past tower blocks.

"Rumble" is taken from the group's new EP Junga, which will drop before Spring is up. Catch The Posterz on May 13th at Birthdays. Tickets here. Click attending here!  They're also playing The Great Escape May 14th.
