Singer Clara's 'Parasite' Music Video Shot with Blackmagic URSA Mini 4K by TruLove Post

In the music video for her single "Parasite," singer Clara takes a unique approach. The song is about a girl who repeatedly tries to steal her friends' lovers, like bees who try to steal the honey bee's honey. Clara uses the music video not as a storyline for the lyrics, but as a message and a warning to the offending girl, while also expressing the feelings and confusion one goes through when trying to understand why someone would act that way.   [FULL STORY]

Once upon a time, a visual effects artist and a Grammy-award winning singer got together to make music video magic and Snow White was reborn. The tale begins when Adam C. Sager, a Portland, Oregon-based VFX supervisor and director, met with Kimbra, a New Zealand-born recording artist, and decided to honor Disney for the inspiration it had given both artists throughout the years. Kimbra had just recorded "I'm Wishing," the song from the classic "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" movie, for a Disney tribute album, We Love Disney, Australia. Blending reality with Disney magic, Sager created a music video that inserted Kimbra directly into the classic animated film as the heroine Snow White and wicked Evil Queen.   [FULL STORY]

"Audi TT: Reality? Check." The recent national ad campaign for the Audi TT from MediaCom, the agency behind the concept, features the iconic sports car racing through rugged terrain and busy cities alike. The spot enters the mind of a child, and as he races his toy car around a track and imagines a full-throttle adventure of challenging terrain and jaw-dropping stunts, the Audi TT achieves it in real life. Mirroring the boy's movements, the spot cuts to real life shots of the Audi TT racing on the edges of cliffs, through dense forests of tall pines, around jagged boulders and hairpin turns, as well as through the nighttime streets of San Francisco, weaving through trollies, traffic and tractor trailers.   [FULL STORY]
 
There is almost no rivalry in professional sports that matches the intensity of one in the National Hockey League. It is not just team against team, but city against city competing against each other in rivalries that have been passed down through generations. Which is one of the reasons why the Winter Classic has become a huge success. Every year, the NHL highlights hockey the way it used to be played: Outside, open to the elements, and in front of thousands of screaming fans. All while featuring teams that have forged generations of bitter rivals. One of these heated rivalries is between the Montreal Canadiens and the Boston Bruins. These two teams are members of the "Original Six", the first professional hockey teams in the NHL, dating back to the beginning of the 20th century.   [FULL STORY]

Entertainment journalists got a chance to boogie with the Peanuts gang this fall during Fox's press screening of "The Peanuts Movie" at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
