For our recent short film POLYLUX, we used an old overhead projector plus a variety of curved glasses, colored oils, inks and rinse aid. It’s a tricky thing to keep all the colors in the right balance. These photos show one of my first experiments with psychedelic light shows at an obscure dark-wave party in Greifswald (2012).

Although sex is a heavy-used ingredient in a lot of music videos, it is pretty difficult to find really exciting and innovative clips. “G.I. Jane (Fill me up)” by Jackson and his Computerband is a welcome exception. Enjoy the show!
A hangover (ˈhæŋoʊvə) is the experience of various unpleasant physiological and psychological effects following consumption of ethanol. Some people recommend artichoke or pickled herring as an anti-hangover therapy. We prefer sex.
Watch out, here comes Crystal! “Cursed with a real crumby attitude and a boring-ass hometown, 17-year-old Crystal relies on her passion for dance to escape the mundane life of rural Ontario and pursue her outsized dream of being a pop superstar”, says the synopsis.
