Recently we’ve been seeing a growth in 360 degree panoramic videos coming out. Well we recently got in touch with Onion Creek Productions who worked on a music video for Wild Child entitled “Rillo Talk.” This is a perfect example of innovation in 360 degree video work. The song is chilling as well. Watch the video and see some excerpts after the jump!

Not too long ago we posted up a video of Jonas Ginter who mounted 8 GoPro cameras above his bicycle to create a “tiny world.” In similar aesthetic, Ryan Staake uses the same model of camera rigging and goes up in the sky for this new music video for German house duo Booka Shade entitled “Crossing Borders.”
According to a number of online sources, Dave Brockie the lead singer of GWAR, also known as Oderus Urungus was found dead in his home Sunday, March 23rd, 2014 at approximately 7pm. Police don’t suspect foul play and the body has been sent off for an autopsy. We were lucky enough to interview him for our 4th issue in 2012 and it was a dream come true. The man was witty, intelligent and stacked with tons of great ideas. We want to express our deepest condolences to the band, friends and family and he will be truly missed by anyone who knew him or his craft.
