There are a lot of Los Angeles makers. There are painters and coffee makers and ceramicists and woodworkers and all sorts of people who make things, many of which have some reverence or relationship to the city that surrounds them. The city has become a paradise for those who make!

To speak to this and to really capture something in the air, LAIY has some exciting news to share: we’ve launched a video series to share stories of the creatives the city is housing. They are quick little peeks into culinary or fashion worlds, designers or juice makers—and they all speak to something very specific about the city. First up as our subject is crazy local jean maker Sinclair Denim, fancy pants (and more) makers who put an incredible amount of work into their crazy jeans.

‘Box’, a short video that explores real and digital space through projection-mapping onto moving surfaces

'Box', a short film that explores real and digital space through projection-mapping onto moving surfaces

Captured entirely in camera. That’s the key thing to remember while watching this short film from Bot & Dolly (with help from GMUNK) simply titled Box. This in my opinion is a great example of truly contemporary art. A fusion of technology, Op Art, and a choreographed stage performance, the complexity of this video is truly incredible.

“Designed Together”, a colorful new commercial for the iPhone 5C

Last week, Apple officially released iOS 7 as well as the colorful iPhone 5C, marrying the product and the operating system into a cohesive thought. This is the first time that Jonny Ive has had creative control over both the hardware and the software, and as you’ll see in the commercial below it’s a cohesive thought that the iPhone has needed for a while now.

I’m a huge fan of iOS 7, I have been since the beta, but it’s been great to see the reaction of friends and family to it as well. So far I’ve heard nothing but good things about it, heck, even my mom thinks it’s great looking.

Glen Ryan’s infrared time-lapse video of the Australian landscape

Glen Ryan's infrared time-lapse video of the Australian landscape

Beautifully shot, time-lapse videos of nature are fairly common these days. With digital video cameras getting more and more powerful it’s more about having the will and taking the time to create a beautiful project than the lack of tools to create it. So I wanted to find something that was a little bit different from the rest, and I think Glen Ryan may have created the perfect thing.

‘Skhizein’, a short film about a man who’s 91cm from himself

'Skhizein' by Jeremy Clapin

What if, on any random day, you were suddenly strike by a giant meteor… that no one saw? And let’s say the meteor spatially moved your physical form 91cm away from where it should be? Would anyone believe you? Or would everyone think you’re crazy?

That’s the idea behind this short film by Jeremy Clapin called Skhizein. It’s kind of an odd story, but that’s also why it’s so charming. Plus the animation is extremely well done, especially the details of the main character charting out his perceived world in his apartment. Just watch it, you’ll understand.
