I’m not a big Vimeo user. It’s one of those sites that I’ve signed up to, purely for rare University use. However today I decided that I might take a look at the wonderful ‘Staff Picks’ section.
This section shows off, well simply, videos that the staff LOVE (“We really love videos, and these are the videos we really, really love. All of these videos have been hand picked by the real humans who work at Vimeo. We hope you enjoy them!” – Vimeo Curation, Vimeo Staff Pick Page, https://vimeo.com/channels/staffpicks).
One video that particularly took my fancy, posted by Paul Trillo has taken out a Staff Pick this week, for very obvious reasons.
CHROMATICITY is a video capturing “an ethereal flight over the ocean as mysterious coloured smoke leaves its mark across the sky. A beautiful choreography between four drones simultaneously in flight and hundreds of smoke grenades.” (Paul Trillo, https://vimeo.com/channels/staffpicks/160730254).
I’m not sure whether it was just the colours that took me or the fact that they used drones, but something about this video really caught my eye. The music is dreamy, the setting is simple, and we have beautiful colours dancing across the sky. The only thing I do wish, is that I could have been there.
