I like a fancy bit of footage

The Framestore has done the latest ad for Eastenders called 'There's a Killer Among Them.' It's bloody brilliant - I love it.
Apparently Lucy Beale has been murdered and this is an ad to get you guessing who dun it. When I was a teenager, Pilot a former clothes shop had 'I Shot Phil Mitchell' t-shirts you could buy. Needless to say I didn't buy one but you get the idea, times have moved on.

The tech behind the film is quite complex, it's a blend of cinemagraph stills that were built in 3D allowing the camera to move around and creating the mesmerising look and feel of the ad.

Watch it below:

I like Chanel

Chanel's latest AW14 show at Paris Fashion Week is something to be admired. Karl Lagerfeld transformed Paris's Grand Palais into a supermarket. The aisle were adorned with Chanel branded food including haute Ketchup.

The show saw models parade around the supermarket without a heel in sight. For me, I'm impressed because when does a supermarket look glamorous? Sometimes the slick, brightly lit polished catwalk can become wallpaper and this show was grounded in theatrical fun.

Here are some pictures and more can be found here.

I like thought provoking work

And today it's coming out of Australia.

This latest spot uses children with very rare diseases in an incredibly touching way that we can all relate to. We've all done 'something fun for charity' but this makes us think twice about doing it again and why.

"The Steve Waugh Foundation is committed to a coordinated approach to the service, identification, treatment and cure of rare diseases – primarily focusing on children (0-25 years of age)."

Here's their video:

I like naked ballerinas

Have I got your attention?

Well I am about to show you some beautiful photographs of naked ballerinas so I would hope so - even at this time on a Friday.

The photographs are taken by the talented frenchman Ludovic Florent. He's used white flour picked up by some stunning lighting to give the figures more movement. The collection is called 'Poussière D'étoiles' which translates as stardust.
Insert stardust pun and we're done.

I like tattoos

Tattoos really fascinate me. I don't have one myself, but have a real soft spot for them, you could go as far to say that I love them.
Not the scary skull tattoos on people's faces, but the beautiful ones.

J&B whisky have partnered up with an infamous tattoo artist named Le Sphinx to celebrate when the whisky was made in the late 19th Century when tattoos really started to kick off. You can read more here but for now, here are some pictures of the 25 latex covered limited edition bottles which has 500 hours worth of tattooing on them.

I like coloured smoke

Coloured smoke photographed well that is. On a beach. Rather specific but still.
These photographs by the The Wade Brothers are stunning.

Here's a few from their portfolio:
